The Wayfarer Diaries: Lingti to Dhankar

24-01-2017, 1400 hours, Lingti, Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India:

We have failed at our first attempt to go to Dhankar monastery as there is too much snow on the Lingti – Lalung road (which we had opted to go on, as it was closer from Kaza). In addition, at certain points, the inclination adds to the problem as it makes it difficult for the tyres to get a decent grip with the snow collected on the road, and so it becomes difficult to move forward. Now we are heading to the other road that leads to Dhankar monastery, bifurcating near Sichling from the national highway 505, where the Pin river meets with the Spiti river.
