    “Lahaul-Spiti is trekker’s delight, a writer’s imagination, a poets thought and heaven for photographers”

    Cut off from the tourist map because of its remoteness, Spiti, along with its twin valley of Lahaul, has retained its pristine charm. Quaint old monasteries, prayer flags fluttering in the wind and monks in their ochre robes, add to the mystic charm of Spiti. The scenic mountain villages perched on mountain crests, Pristine rivers, the vast landscapes and the harsh conditions are all a part of the package that constitute this adventurous Himalayan journey.

Even in summer, temperatures rarely rise above 15°C, and winter temperatures can plummet below -30°C
