About the Tour:
Imagine a winter wonderland just like in a fairytale, where the sheets of pure white snow stretch as far as the eyes can see, covering the mountains, trees, houses frequently dotted with the maroon robbed monks! Seems like a dream? Imagine when it actually happens as you strike out this adventure from your bucket list by driving through the rough terrain of the magical "middle land' - the Spiti Valley.
Known for their hospitality, the warmth of the Spitians is sure to keep you warm enough for you to enjoy this winter vacation throughout as you stay in the traditional Spiti houses in the valley. A drive from the highest village to the last village is totally worth remembering as you breathe in the fresh mountain air while sitting on the isolated slopes of the last village surrounded by magnificent landscapes. Feel the chills as you look down upon a tiny truck from Asia’s highest suspended Chicham bridge or cross the manually operated cable ropeway to Kibber village, Spiti makes a perfect powerpack for an adventurous vacation
