Spiti Travel Guide

Spiti is amongst the most exotic places of India, nestled in higher parts of Himachal Pradesh. Wrapped by snowy expanses, Spiti Valley map makes it clear that it is amongst the most remote destinations of India and accessible in summers. Snow sheets, wonderful villages, crystal clear water of rivers, mesmeric monasteries, fluttering prayer flags, monks’ maroon robes collectively tempt tourists to book Spiti packages. Nourished by Spiti River, the valley resonates with paradisiacal natural charm. No wonder, it is loved by nature lovers as well as adventure enthusiasts.

Weather

Before chalking out a Spiti Valley trip plan, it is prudent to know when to visit it and when to avoid. Mid of May to September is the best time to visit Spiti Valley as it is during these months when the region is blessed by summers and weather is pleasant during the day. Spiti Valley roads are also accessible, facilitating bikers to enjoy Spiti Valley bike tours. During monsoons, the region witnesses frequent downpours and landslides. October to February is the least advisable time for a visit to Spiti as the region experiences extreme winters. The roads connecting Spiti Valley to the rest of India are cut-off most of the time in this season. Spiti Valley in winters turns a desert that is generously covered in thick sheets of snow. Thus, a Spiti Valley road trip should be avoided during this season.

Food

Culinary treats are among the best things about Spiti Valley. The cuisine serves an eclectic blend of various flavors such as North Indian and Israeli, dominated by Tibetan tastes. Barley is the main food source that is used in various food items such as laddoos of roasted flour and breakfast cereal called thungpa. A Spiti Valley trip is incomplete without relishing momos, thukpa, and butter tea. In addition, flavoured and aromatic teas such as those with garnishes of lemon, mint, ginger, honey are quite popular. Arrack or Arkah (barley whisky) and Chang (barley beer) are also enjoyed here.

Shopping

Every Spiti Valley itinerary should keep some spare time for shopping. Carpets, pure wool shawls, woolen clothes, bedroom slippers made of grass, Chinese ceramic utensils, and stone gems and local jewelry are must buy items. Government hand-loom centre and co-operative society run shops are best places to buy these items.

City Attractions

The incredible Spiti magnetizes tourists to its surreal landscapes and glaciers. Usually visited by bikers and trekkers, Spiti is loved by nature lovers as well. Some of the Spiti Valley attractions are Tabo monastery - a home to some Ajanta like paintings, Gandhola Monastery, Lhalung Monastery, Chandra Taal, Suraj Taal, Kunzum Pass, and Pin Valley National Park.

Festivals

When vacationers visit Spiti Valley, fairs and festivals enrich their holiday. Some of them are -

§  Dechhang – Celebrated in December-January, this is a community celebration.

§  Lossar – Celebrated in February, Lossar marks the start of a new year and is celebrated in all the monasteries.

§  Ladaracha fair – Held in every July in Kaza, Ladarcha is a traditional trade fair.

§  Tribal Fair – Keylong town hosts this fair from 14th to 16th August.

§  Chakhar Mela – Celebrated in last week of September, only once in every three years.

§  Tsheshu Festival - At the monasteries of Shashur, Gemur, Kye, Kardang, Tabo, and Mane, this festival is celebrated in June.

Correctly known as ‘Little Tibet’, Spiti is a cold and sprawling desert that is blessed immensely by Mother Nature. The region is dotted by deep ravines and gorges, in addition to other aspects that make it a picture postcard beauty. A visit to this breathtaking landscape is precious enough to overlook the Spiti Valley tour cost. This, a vacation with a detailed Spiti Valley travel guide imparts memories to treasure.

      I had booked a trip to do the tribal circuit in Himachal comprising of Kinnaur/Spiti/Lahaul from Prince Tour and Travels towards 2nd week of September (nearly end Season). And I have a lovely memory of the entire journey. Also I must say that not only they are very wonderful people, but they understand the spirit of the a traveller. It has been a memorable experience with them. Special thanks to their head Mr. Sharma Ji, and Deepika for taking care of us. For fellow travellers, I have a suggestion, please travel in this circuit with atleast 2 weeks of holidays at your hand. - Waking up at Karcham Village's hotel (Rupin Resort) and the view from there was amazing. - Chitkul is yet another amazing spot - Trekking to view key monaestry from a distant spot (Recommended for photographers) - Lakes in the route is not to be forgotten. All of them are beauty in themselves - Kaza monastery morning prayer (8:00AM) try not to miss it!!! - The Grand Statue of Buddha at Lanza village, kibber village is an asset in itself - Chandratal camps

      Hotel and Manali was very good, but cab service was very bad. Driver didn't knew the path 3 times he took wrong route and delayed our journey. While returning for 7 hours constantly we requested driver to switch on AC but he ignored our request, at the end a heated argument let him switch on AC.

      As much as I would recommend Tanish Travels, I would request them to kindly consider looking for an alternate driver (Dharampal). The driver was bad, but to be honest the kind of effort which Mr. Bunty & Mr. Thakur (From Tanish Travels) had put in to ensure our trip was comfortable has to be commended. They in fact went an extra mile to get us a better hotel in Manali, which was clean, big and closer to City Center. I would anyday vouch and recommend people to choose Tanish Travels.

      Mr 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.
