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.
