Isolated from time itself, Spiti gives you the Himalayas at their most raw and mystical. The Spiti Valley is an oasis of life at the heart of a vast mountain desert, where villages of traditional stone houses shelter among pools of waving green wheat, prayer flags flutter in the wind, and Buddhist monasteries gleam white against the barren mountain slopes. It’s all set to a backdrop of soaring snowcapped peaks. If we had to say all this in one word? Breathtaking!
On the following journeys, your hosts will be the local people of Spiti. Staying in simple village homestays, you’ll get a real insight into daily life of people who carve out their living amongst some of the harshest and most beautiful scenery on earth.
