Destination

Known as the ‘the Middle Land’, the Spiti Valley is a cold desert valley that lies between India and Tibet. As it is situated within the Himalayas of Himachal Pradesh, not only will you find breathtaking views of snow clapped mountain peaks but even dazzling natural beauty. However, as your motor biking trip progresses and you make your way higher, you’ll notice a change in the vegetation – from lush green meadows and forests you’ll find arid landscapes and rugged terrains. During your journey you’ll also get to stop at many other tiny hamlets to imbibe the culture and the rustic way of life.

Throughout this journey you’ll be accommodated in deluxe hotel rooms or Swiss camps.
