Spiti Valley Trip & Chandrataal Lake

Spiti Valley Trip & Chandrataal Lake


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’.
