    Destination

Rich with a unique blend of Indo-Tibetan and Buddhist cultures, the valley is populated by centuries-old monasteries and stupas. Surrounding these houses of culture are desolate landscapes of imposing mountains and deep valleys.

    Your Spiti motorbiking trip begins from the lush, green valleys of Manali but as each day passes, you'll travel deeper into the Spiti Valley where stark, grey mountains dominate the horizon. On the last day, you'll circle back to Manali completing the Spiti Valley circuit.
