Best Time To Visit Spiti
Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination
Literally translating to “The Middle Land”, Spiti Valley is one of the most charming gifts of nature to Himachal. This cold desert mountain valley offers enthralling views of the Himalayan mountains, and is known for its culture which has a Buddhist influence. The culture, landscape, weather, tranquility, and the pristine face of nature attract a large number of tourists to this valley who flock to this place to escape from the bustling city life. This breathtaking valley is also famous for a number of monasteries which add to the beauty of the place.
As the valley is situated at an enormous height, therefore, it witnesses drastic climatic changes, and hence, one cannot visit this place during any time of the year. The best time to visit Spiti highly depends upon the seasons. Visiting Spiti in winter is strictly not recommended as temperature drops drastically during this season. One can visit Spiti during the summer season which is the best time to visit Lahaul Spiti as the temperature of the valley remains quite pleasant during this season, and hence, it is apt for sightseeing, and outdoor activities. Here’s a seasonal breakup of Spiti Valley weather which will give a better idea about the best time to visit Lahaul Spiti:
Climate in Spiti
Summer Season in Spiti
Summer season in Spiti begins from the month of April and runs till June, Spiti Valley weather in May marks the beginning of the tourist season as the route via Manali opens in this month. Late May to June is the best season to visit Spiti Valley as the temperature rises above the 0 degree celsius which makes traveling possible in this area. The temperature in Spiti Valley in June ranges between 0 and 15 degree celsius which makes it perfect for sightseeing and outdoor activities. It is because of the pleasant Spiti valley weather in June that most of the bikers begin their journey to this wonderland.
Monsoon Season in Spiti
The rainy season in Spiti sets in the month of July, and runs till September. Monsoon is also not a good time to visit the valley as, during this season, the rainy weather in Lahaul Spiti makes traveling quite difficult. The roads become quite muddy, and the waterfalls are also on full flow. Therefore, travelers get stuck for days while traveling during the monsoon season. The heavy showers of rain hinder sightseeing of the city’s major tourist attractions as well.
Winter Season in Spiti
Winter season in Spiti sets in the month of October and runs till the end of March. During this season, Lahaul Spiti temperature starts dropping steadily, turning the valley into a cold desert. Travelers who want to visit Spiti Valley in October will have to take Srinagar and Kargil route as the route from Manali is shut by the authorities during winters. Temperature in Spiti Valley in December ranges from -1 to -5 and at night it may drop to -20 as well. Therefore, due to the extreme temperature in Lahaul Spiti, it is not recommended to travel to the valley in winter.

Trip to SpitiMr Thakur who was co-ordinating with us was wise and guiding us through out the trip. He also helped us getting back and made arrangements for our stay at the last minute due to sudden landslide in Manali All the hotels that he had booked were fantastic with awesome view.
Trip to SpitiI have been to Spiti Valley recently thru Deyor Camps. It was a group of 32 amazing people and I had the best time during this trip. Deyor Camps have organised everything so well. Captain and his team was very efficient and always there for us.
Trip to SpitiI went to spiti valley from 1 spet to 10 sept with Deyor camp with the help of TT. Intially i was not sure how my jurny will go through as i never heard deyor camp name before. But in the end it was one of the best trip i ever have. They meange every thing very well right from the beginning till end of the trip. We got Himalyan bike for our bike road trip. Akhil was or team lead and company CO-Owner Gautam was also with us through out our jurny. It was one of the best experience i have and trip to member life time. No camp can make 100% exception to all the ppl as they are adventurous trip not luxry trip. So i do have nothing to complaint about. They did there best to make this whole jurny memorable to us. I wish a bright future for Deyor team.

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
