    From Nako we took the dusty road and climbed higher and higher. After sometime we crossed the Mallinga Nullah. And then the so called road started descending. Spiti was gurgling along. It had slate color. The turns were blind. Passage so narrow that two vehicles cannot cross each other. We were to reach Tabo around […]
