  • Trip introduction

    The Spiti Valley trek allows you to unravel the many mysteries of Spiti, as you walk through the dramatic landscape on foot. You'll have an easy trek of 4 hours each day, and can explore some of the highest villages of the world, visit 1000-year-old monasteries and go to the highest post office in the world. Every evening brings a new experience in a homestay: you can choose to learn pottery one evening, go on a yak ride, learn how to make momos, or enjoy the songs of the locals (none of these activities are included in the package, and are all optional). You will eat home-cooked meals every night, and learn about the lives of the simple Spiti folk. By the end of these five days, Spiti will be a part of you forever.

    IMPORTANT: The Spiti Valley trek begins early on the first day. It is recommended that you arrive in Kaza a day or two earlier so you don't miss the trek departure, and so that you have time to acclimatize.

    Destination

    The Spiti Valley homestay trek takes you from Kaza to Ki Monastery and Kibber village, and to places with exotic names like Langza, Komik, Demul, Lalung, and Dhankar. You'll visit some of the highest villages in the world, where the white-washed mud homes blend in perfectly with the terrain. You'll walk alongside herds of yak or shepherds with their flocks. And all around you, you'll see the stark landscape of the Spiti Valley and the snow-capped peaks in the distance.

    Destination highlights

    • Discover Spiti Valley on a slow, peaceful adventure.
    • Visit the 1000-year-old Ki Monastery.
    • Send a postcard to yourself and your friends from Hikkim, the highest post office in the world.

    • Live with locals and experience their traditions and culture.
    • See the spectacular Tangmar mountain as it changes colours over the course of the day.
    • Enjoy a panoramic view of the Spiti Valley from Dhankar, former capital of Spiti.
