Travelling to barren mountain desert of Spiti valley
Travelling to barren mountain desert of Spiti valley is like travelling to another planet. Spiti in local language means ‘middle land’, which means the land between Tibet and India. For centuries, these valleys have been ancient routes for traders and travelers between India and Tibet. The local culture and religion of Spiti is heavily influenced by Tibetan Buddhism. The high altitude mountain passes of Rohtang and Kunzum that you will cross on the way to Spiti will take your breath away. The valley opens for only a small time window during the year because of extreme weather.
Summer comes with bright sunlight and emerald green Pin and Spiti rivers. Once the winter sets in post September, not only animals but also humans go in hibernation as the temperature plummets below 20 degrees below zero. We not only take you through the stunning landscapes that will make you skip heartbeats, we will also give you a very local experience of staying with families and storytelling about the Folk Tales. You go as a tourist but come back having formed a deep relationship with the place and its people.
