How long has it been since you took a break from the hustle-bustle of the world? If yes, then it’s time for you to take a trip to Spiti Valley. Located between India and Tibet at a height of 14,010 feet, the cold desert is known for its scenic beauty and peaceful atmosphere. As Spiti Valley tours started increasing, the place is also becoming more and more happening for trekking, camping and other adventure activities.
During the months of June-September, the weather in Spiti Valley is chilly and rainy. The temperature ranges from 15°C to -2°C. This is a great time to take a road trip in Spiti Valley. You can also choose to take a bike trip if you want.
In this Spiti Valley tour package, we provide you with treks, safari, camping and sightseeing.
Located at an average height of 14010 feet above sea level, ‘Spiti – the Land Of Gods’ consists of stark high alpine lands, scattered with small postcard-perfect villages of whitewashed mud-homes and monasteries. With freckles of green over a dry, weather-beaten face, Spiti is a cold desert. Characterized by stark beauty, narrow valleys and high mountains Spiti has some of the highest villages in the world- Kibber, Gete, Langza, Hikkim, and Komic.
Get ready to travel to a world where villages appear like a mirage after miles of trailing a turquoise green river nestled between snow-capped barren mountains and blue lakes; a world which has the coldest winters you’ll ever see, but therein reside the warmest people you will ever meet; ‘A world within a world’.
