About Spiti Travel Guide
Nestled in the Himalayan mountain range in Himachal Pradesh, Spiti tourism offers an impeccable experience as one navigates through the intermittent greenery, picturesque deserts, snow-capped mountains, and long winding roads. With an altitude of 12,500 feet above the sea level, this place is one of the coldest locations in the country. Accessible via motorway only during the months of summer, Spiti is one of the remotest locations to visit to. Hence, this lesser known place- a hidden isolated gem- is for the ones who dare to drift from the usual tourist trails. Aptly named as ‘Spiti’ which means ‘The Middle Land’, it divorces India from Tibet. Evoking strong comparisons with the latter, it leaves visitors spellbound while one gets acquainted with quaint old Spiti valley monasteries, monks in their robes and prayer flags fluttering in the wind that portray a duplicate picture of Tibet.

Traveling to Spiti by air is not an easy task because the Spiti Valley nearest airport is in Kullu which is around 260 kilometers away. Therefore, one still has to cover a lot of ground while traveling to Spiti by air. It takes around 7 to 8 hours to reach Spiti from Kullu airport. Another demerit of traveling to Spiti by air is that one might not find direct flights to Kullu airport from their hometown as it is a domestic airport. The nearest international airport is in Chandigarh which is kilometers away. Hence, traveling to Spiti by air can be quite challenging as well.

Trip to SpitiAwesome arrangements...The cab driver Panditji was quite experienced and friendly...
Trip to Spitiwe had a good trip to Spiti .. everything hotels at Spiti and Camping and chandratal was managed well. cab which was supposed to pick is on day 1 at Manali got stuck in a landslide and I believe the back up cab could have been sent on time (we got it within 30min of request). in that situation we would have more time spent at kaza. rest everything was decently managed. cab driver was very good , very calm and patient and has very good knowledge about area. he had to drive pretty late in night since we started at 12in afternoon from Manali but he drovr carefully and patiently - camping at chandratal - visit to hikkim and langza
Trip to SpitiAarushi helped a great deal to fit Spiti trip into my budget. Akhil- Captain and Arjun- Co-captain were excellent in their job during the day and were best of the buddies, each day, after reaching our Hotels/Campsites for the rest of the evening. I would appreciate Deyor for its decision to provide Himalayan to Bikers as it is Best for that terrain. Do not go for TB 500 as it would be too heavy to control on those roads. If sm1 offers TB350, pls understand that you are being cheated. Deyor delivered what it had promised. You can trust them and hand over your vacation days to receive a Best plan at Best price in return. Yo Deyor!! - Hotel Mahamaya Rooms at Narkanda - Himalayan Ride for all 7 days. - Fun moments that we had in our small group of 6 Bikers along with Marshall Akhil and Co-captain Arjun. - View of changing terrains enroute to Spiti. - Chandratal Lake view and its scenic beauty.

Trip to SpitiOur travel experience with Tanish was very good except some technical issues. The trip was well organised and the driver Padam Bhai had good knowledge about the area. Our stay in Manali was with Lotus River inn, a hotel located outside the city. The location of the hotel is awesome if someone is looking for relaxation he should opt for this hotel. Out expidition from Manali to Spiti was full of adventure. Unexpected weather conditions added to the adventure element. Overall a well managed trip. Best part of the trip was our stay in Manali and morning walk along the chandrataal lake
