In the upper Himalayan region exists Spiti Valley – the middle land, which is filled with wonders and sights that are unparalleled. Spiti Valley – where birds fly across the blue skies, while the towering mountains keep the secret of this land, safe in their shadows.

Spiti Valley – where chants ring across the rustic monasteries, and the villages lay perched on the far away slopes. Each looking like a dream you’d want to live.

Spiti Valley – where rivers meander through deserted valleys, where you’d stand and stare in disbelief that something like this can continue to exist beyond the usual destinations.

So join us on this journey to Spiti Valley, where you’d be taken away from the mundane by a monk on one of the afternoons, where he’d tell you about life in this land. Where you’d sit and stare at the stars, while sitting beside the river and wonder, how lucky are those who could experience this.

Spiti Valley is the land where you’d listen to stories that belongs to a lifestyle you had never imagined about ; where you’d visit a lake existing in the middle of nowhere, as if an oasis for the Gods who once lives here.

At 12,500 feet above sea level, Spiti Valley is where you’d see, a different side of Himalayas.

This guided and curated seven-day Spiti Valley road trip is designed for travellers looking for an authentic Spiti Valley experience in a week’s time. Shared by a small group of travellers, this Spiti Valley Tour includes travelling in a comfortable Force Traveller to some of the most popular villages of Spiti Valley including Asia’s highest villages – Komik and Kibber.

Marvel at the wondrous structure of the Ki Monastery and get ready to be amazed by the Tabo Monastery – a 1020-year-old UNESCO World Heritage Site. End this tour on a high note (literally), as you spend a night, gazing at the Milky Way and the millions of stars while camping around the stunningly beautiful Chandratal Lake.

Arrival at Manali

Your seven-day Spiti Valley Tour begins as you leave the urban scape for the Himalayan town of Manali, where you get your first taste of the Himalayas. Manali today is an attractive blend of a hill, town and holiday resorts.

You'll be free to explore Manali on foot this day.

Drive from Manali - Rohtang Pass - Kunzum Pass - Kaza

We begin our journey on the 200-kilometre (125 mile) road from Manali to Kaza in Spiti. As we pass through the popular adventure-haven Rohtang Pass at 13,054 feet, we experience a dramatic change in the landscape around us, from dense forested Hills to Rocky barren plains and peaks. This road is a scenic rollercoaster, into the desolate and stunning brown landscape approaching Chattru and Batal. At 14,931 feet, we are welcomed by the chilly air at Kunzum Pass, descending into Losar Village, the first in Spiti Valley.

We reach Kaza by evening, and enjoy our night at a comfortable hotel.

Drive from Kaza - Pin Valley - Mudh Village - Kaza

On the third day of our Spiti Valley tour, we drive towards the beautiful Pin Valley.

From snow-clad mountains to lush green lands, Pin Valley promises an abundance of animals and birds, with some rare plant varieties, and trekking opportunities for the adventure-seekers.

In addition, other animals indigenous to the region and park are the Siberian ibex, Bharal, weasel, red fox, and marten. Birds such as the Pika, griffon, golden eagle, bearded vulture, Chukor and Raven paint the skies a pretty picture. We make our way to the Kungri Monastery, and then to the beautiful hamlet of Mudh – the last motorable village of the Pin Valley. We end this day with a bonfire by the river.

With serene landscapes, the warmth of the fire, complemented by the rhythmic flow of the gushing water, we enjoy our piping hot tea, and head back to Kaza by night.

Drive from Kaza - Ki Monastery - Langza - Komik - Hikkim - Kaza

On the third day of our Spiti Valley Tour, we drive to some of the highest inhabited regions of the world.

We begin our day by heading to Komik, which literally translates to “eye of a snow cock”, the highest village in Asia situated at the height of 14,806 feet. With the tiny population of 84 people, this isolated farm village is surrounded by soft brown pastures and snow-white mountain peaks.

We further drive to the world’s highest post office in the world in Hikkim, where you may even meet the post-master and hear his stories.

After sending a postcard out, we drive to the picturesque village of Langza. As you walk back to the prehistoric era when Spiti was submerged by the Tethys Sea, as you explore a land very rich with fossils of Marine animals and plants which were here millions of years ago.

Today, we also visit the world-famous Ki Monastery, situated at a height of 13,668 feet. With over 1000 years’ worth stories to tell, Ki Monastery was founded by the discipline of the famous Atisha in the 11th century CE. Before making our way to the monastery, the we’ll make a quick stop at the base of the monastery hill for the ultimate photo-opportunity of this remarkable structure. Belonging to the Yellow Hat or Gelugpa sect of Tibetan Buddhism, this monastery is famous as a prominent centre of learning.
A monk guides us through the monastery as we overlook the endless plains, seeking peace and calm.

We drive back to Kaza by evening, and spend the night at our comfortable hotel.

Drive from Kaza - Tabo - Dhankar. Trek from Dhankar to Lhalung

After having breakfast we will start our journey towards Pangong Tso. Pangong lake is just 155 KM far from Leh and it is one of the most beautiful lake in the world. This day you have choice to come back on same day or we can stay for one night in Pangong. Pangong is also known for 3 idiots movie.

6

Drive from Lhalung - Kibber - Losar - Kunzum Pass - Chandratal Lake

This day, we commence our journey back home and trace our steps back on the Kaza – Manali road.

However, we take a stop at the picturesque village of Kibber, before heading to another Spitian wonder – Chandratal Lake. Located at a height of 4,205 meters and 18 km from Kaza, Kibber is also a popular base camp to embark on adventure and treks to adjoining mountains of high altitude. The expanses of beautiful landscapes and immeasurable beauty of the snow-tipped mountains make the place a haven for nature-lovers and photographers alike.

From Kibber, we make our way to the mystical and beautiful Chandratal Lake, which translates to Moon Lake, located at a height of 14,100 feet. The Chandra Bhaga mountain range forms a striking backdrop for the lake, which changes appearance according to the pictures painted in the sky. After capturing the colours of the beautiful Chandratal Lake, we drive to our camping site where a hot supper under the gaze of a million stars and the Milky Way awaits us.

Drive from Chandratal Lake - Batal - Chattru - Rohtang Pass - Manali

With visuals of the stunning Chandratal Lake captured in minds and cameras, we continue driving on the Kaza – Manali road and after a few hours of driving and some more stunning landscape, we pass through the famous Rohtang Pass and reach Manali where we bid goodbye to our driver to end our breath-taking Spiti Valley sojourn.

    I did Spiti tour with KPL in 2018. I must say the team members were very professional, caring, and friendly at the same time. There were times when one of my family member got sick. But KPL handled the situation even in the harsh conditions. Seriously I would love to travel with them again and again.
