    Destination

    Spiti, a cold desert mountain valley, sits at the intersection of India and Tibet. The valley offers a unique blend of Indo-Tibetan and Buddhist cultures, emphasized by ancient monasteries, some of which date back a thousand years. The valley is also home to an off-beat motorbiking route that has started gaining popularity only in the recent few years. The reason for this emerging popularity is quite apparent with the incredible beauty of the valley's snow-capped summits and imposing mountains, rising far beyond the clouds.

    Your Spiti motorbiking adventure begins in Delhi. As you head north towards the Spiti Valley, you'll halt at small, hillside villages and visit cultural landmarks and monastery. You'll explore Kaza, the largest city in the valley, and camp in Swiss tents near the Chandratal Lake. You'll circle back to the lush, green valleys of Manali, ending the tour with unforgettable experiences.
