Who's There? Travelling On The World's Most Treacherous Road On A Royal Enfield! By Sabya Sachi Ghosh

At the Foothills of of the Mighty Himalayas
According to the border roads organisation the road to Spiti Valley is the world's most treacherous road. It is primarily un mettled and runs along side the sutlej and the spiti river. however the main cause of this road being so dangerous is the hanging menace over it in the form of rocks and boulders.... one needs also to to look up and mind falling rocks while negotiating this mad mountain track. The best part of this road is the lack of traffic and very little amount of pollution in the form of plastic bags and other gifts tourists leave behind.... we did this road twice without any mishap (except rajesh lost his bag to the spiti river) as we also had to return back the same way because the Kunjum Pass was un-passable due to incessant snow fall.
