Our lunch stop will be at an altitude of 13000 ft in the village of Nako. We will experience a complete change in scenery as the greenery turns into a desert like surrounding. The occasional patches of green are where peas and apples are grown with the glacial water of river Spiti. The next stop of the Nako would be the village of Gui where the mummy of a monk is preserved, and is also just 10 kms away from the China border. Our Stay in Tabo will be at 11000 ft. The steady gain in altitude will help us sleep better and not feel the sickness usually associated with higher altitudes.
