 Spiti is generally spoken of in the same breath as Lahaul, for administratively they are linked. They have a common district headquarters at Keylong in Lahaul. Lahaul is on the western side of Runzum la. Its centerpiece is the Chandrabhaga region with several peaks above 6000 m and large valleys which are a climber's paradise. Trekkers visit Chandra tal often and now the Manali- Leh highway passes through Lahual. It is a popular jeep-safari route. Western lahaul has some interesting peaks like Mulkila and Phabrang before the range merges with Pir Panjal.

The Chandrabhaga flows into the Kishtwar and is thence called the Chenab, Kishtwar could have been India's answer to the Alps, though the peaks here are much higher than of that famous range. Unfortunately for a decade now the region, like the other valleys of Kashmir, is in political turmoil and mountaineers are advised not to visit it.                                                                                     Next page
