  • Trip introduction

    Witness the raw, natural beauty of the Spiti Valley as you take 6 days to visit monasteries and villages hidden away in Himachal's mountain peaks. You'll go camping under the stars, visit the gorgeous Chandratal Lake, see the 1,000-year old Key Monastery, explore Kaza, travel to the highest post office in the world at Hikkim, try your luck at spotting centuries-old fossils at Langza and explore the high-altitude Pin Valley national park. En route to such destinations dipped in the charm of Buddhist culture, you'll travel in a trusty Tempo Traveller through the cold and arid desert of Spiti and across mountain passes as high as 15,000 ft.

    Destination

    Standing in stark contrast to Manali's lushly forested mountains, Spiti Valley is known for its barren mountain ranges that stretch endlessly across north-eastern Himachal. These mountain ranges are home to some of the most heavenly landscapes, offering views of rugged and rocky mountain slopes, lakes that sparkle like gems, and snow-capped peaks on the horizon. Spiti is also home to some of the highest inhabited villages in Asia, from Komic to Hikkim, where clusters of mud-bricked homes form tiny communities of shepherds and farmers.

    Destination highlights

    • Admire the incredible landscape of the Spiti Valley on a road trip.
    • Visit the world's highest post office at Hikkim.
    • Go camping and visit the moon-shaped Chandratal Lake.
    • Visit Langza, the fossil village of India.
    • Explore the Pin Valley national park at Mudh.
