Spiti valley 8N/9Days

Spiti is the land of monasteries and open landscapes preserved deep in the mighty Himalayas. Spiti and Pin Rivers making their way through the desert mountain valley positioned north-east in the hilly state of India. Spiti has entirely a different terrain as compared to its better half Lahaul. You might see a lot of greenery all around when in Lahaul, but as soon as you cover few kilometers beyond Kunzum Pass, an open valley with extended cold desert and beautiful landscapes start revealing itself to its visitors. If you didn’t ever get a chance to visit Ladakh in your lifetime, you can taste its culture and landscape in Spiti, because culturally and geographically this place isn’t very different from Ladakh.
Cultural and traditional heritage this place holds is more than 1000 years old. Monasteries and stupas that stand unmoved in their places since centuries are the witnesses of great natural turmoil that took place in the Greater Himalayas to give origin to this heavenly place. Snow-capped peaks rise on both banks of Spiti and Pin Rivers to spear the sky and protect its inhabitants from all uncalled for travesties. The priceless gift of mother nature in the form of pure environment, crystal clear water, fertile land, picturesque landscapes, century-old glaciers, and snowfields make Spiti a must-visit place on earth.
High passes, lowlands, small and long flights of bridges connecting two ends of the open valley at places have been our companions for years on our journeys to this most beautiful land. We have been driving through these picture-perfect roads and Himalayan villages for years. Willing to share one of our most memorable travel experiences with you, we have designed this road trip in a way that you get a chance to explore Spiti inside out. From food to Spiti culture to extended natural landscapes, you will get a chance to live the life of the local people.
