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.
