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.

    • Trip to Spiti

      The trip to Manali and Spiti Valley was very well planned by travel Talkies (agent - Mukesh). The hotels were good. The cab driver was very sweet, patient and extremely skilled to drive on the no-road terrain of Spiti. Please avoid Private Volvo to and from Delhi and Manali. Thanks for giving us a amazing trip experience.

    • Trip to Spiti

      My current trip experience with Travel Triangle was totally disappointing. The Travel Triangle Point of Contact(PoC) - Aniket Mishra was totally unsupportive. He was unavailable for most of the time except for asking me to pay the money. Neither did he provide any guidance nor answers to any of my queries. His only response was either "I will get back " or "Please talk to my colleague - Rohan". In the end, he kept my invoice open inspite of me telling him that I have paid the balance amount in cash to my travel agent which was suggested by Travel Triangle. Ultimately, I had to speak directly to Rohan to get my invoice closed. The tour operator suggested by Travel Triangle was good.

      First of all we would like to tell you that we all are very thankful to you to plan such a wonderful trip. Considering the logistics, coordination and terrain of the region, the efforts that were put down by you are really commendable. We believe that you will keep on serving other customers/travellers with same dedication and commitment. Overall our trip were with in the range of expectations. We would like to point out some points/feedback about our trip so that it can help you to serve/plan other people better What went good on the trip: Itinerary for the trip was well planned as per the region of spiti valley. We covered most of the places considering the time that we had for the trip. You also supported us in customising the itinerary as per our convenience. The accommodation(hotels/tents) that was provided was nice and comfortable. Rooms, bedding and washroom cleanliness was up to the mark. The tents at chandratal lake was inferior as compared to other locations but we can understand the remote location of chandratal lake can be the reason for this. The location and views from hotels was mesmerizing specially at Sangla and Kalpa. The staff was also very courteous at all the locations considering we had a 1.5 years old also kid with us. The driver of traveller was very skilled and knew the manoeuvring of vehicle in narrow hilly regions like a professional. He drove with utmost perfection in hairpin bends and rough roads during the trip. We are also very thankful for the unplanned complimentary stay provided by you on the last day at Manali. Although it was for 1 hour only but it was very helpful to get freshen up and repack the stuff. What could have been done better: Although it was mentioned in the itinerary and we were also running short on time but we would have really appreciated if we would have covered the Pin valley considering its natural beauty. We think many travellers similar to our itinerary will always miss it, no matter how so ever they plan it. The driver that was assigned to us was driver only. He never acted as the guide in any sense in order to make us familiar with the places in and around of our stay during the trip. It was just a point to point travel with him with no information or knowledge sharing in between. In Kaza, we requested him to take us to a place which was merely 3 km away. He simply refused our request stating baseless reasons like he will take us tomorrow or I am sleeping now(in daytime). It was really a setback for us as Kaza was the only place where we had some free time to explore nearby places. Tempo traveller could have been in a better condition for such trips. The interiors were in average condition and many times we have to stop for minor defects like oil leakage. The tasks like collecting water, air pressure checking, fuelling the vehicle could have been done before we boarding the vehicle thus saving our time for traveling. I hope you will take above points as constructive feedback to serve future customers better. It was wonderful being in touch with you.

      IMM ventures was great. First Ambika helped us with itinerary and hotels. Then Anil bhai was with us throughout the tour. Anil bhai was really helpful and his team was great to. We actually made friends. The hotels was good bikes was also good. Spiti valley has mobile coverage problems but still everything was managed. Even the route in spiti valley have weather problems road blocks but Anil bhai had a plan B always helped us to complete the spiti circuit. Anil bhai even helped us on the worst road condition he himself drove the bike when needed. His team was also great helpful and friendly. Henceforth IMM ventures will be my first choice if I visit Noth India. Thank you IMM ventures Team.

      I would like to share my experience of Spiti Tour with Holidays Icon. Here we come in touch with our tour coordinator Ms. Diksha Bragta, a polite , professional and talkative lady. She never ever fail to respond us during day one to last of our trip. She arranged Excellent rooms and transportation for us... Mukesh, a friendly Driver of Innova Crysta was introvert in nature but faithful to his duty.... Another person from Holiday Icon was Ashwini Verma, a well profit loss calculator. We hire them for 6 day and 5 night tour of Spiti including Chandratal camp. Everything was good and fine at the time of beginning and as per requirements of our planning. Our predecided route was via Rohtang Pass and Kunzum pass, but weather didn't allow us as Rohtang Route was closed ( so before plan the journey make sure Rohtang Route is open or not as BRO official declaration ). Now the complete itinerary was changed to the new longest route via Kalpa , Taboo, Kaza. But during journey we strongly feel that at least 7 or more days are required for Spiti Adventure Tour because less number of days automatically increases the time of travel on hilly roads. We started from Manali and finished it at Manali. Hotels review on Internets are enough to judge their services, Here we are also satisfied with them. On the tribal area of Himanchal there are less number of availability of Hotels so there are no more options to choose better one. The evening and night temperature was falling fast and extremely cold and day temperature was pleasantly good. One of our friend got mountain sickness ( breathing problem ) after altitude of Sangla. We have to rescheduled our plan and Journey near to Kalpa. So we return back to Manali again. During this phase The Holiday Icons rearranged Hotels for us in Manali and we have to pay additional for cancelled hotels in Spiti ( That was actually the total promised cost of Hotels in itinerary without taking their services ). Now the Spiti Tour was completely converted into Manali Trip with additional cost with cancellation of Spiti Hotels. We enjoyed the Manali Locals, Rohatang Pass, Solang Valley, mall roads etc. Now we regret to choose the less number of days for Spiti Tour.

    • Trip to Spiti

      What was intended to be a soul searching trip turned out to be a worst nightmare. The travel agents were pathetic in handling their duties. There was absolutely no communication from their end w.r.t the change of accomodation or the reporting time unless asked for. There was mismanagement from day 1 till the last day of the trip. The accomodation on the last day in Shimla was horrible. There were heaps of hair on the floor and even the dining area wasn't clean. Only the 4th day sailed smoothly. Addressing the elephant in the room - convincing the travel agents to take us to kunzum pass was an uphill task (inspite of the place being included in our itinerary) 2 weeks before the trip the travel agent informed us about ruling out Chandraral lake, kunzum pass and rohtang pass from our itinerary. Chandraral lake and rohtang pass exclusion was understandable as it was subject to the opening of the roads, whereas, there was no proper explanation for striking out kunzum top when there were other tourist vehicles visiting the same. I constantly kept in touch with Ambika to include the visit the kunzum pass and she assured me it would be done until the day before the trip began. As soon as the tour started, all the co-travellers insisted on visiting kunzum pass and communicated the same to the travel agent. Ambika assured to get back with the update every single time, but failed. Finally, before beginning our journey to kaza from pin valley, we had to take a call on visiting kunzum pass otherwise it would've been impossible to cover the other places in kaza as well as kunzum pass within a period of 2 days. Even after reaching kaza, there was absolutely no response from the travel agents and we literally had to stop our vehicle on the middle of road to know the status of our trip since we had no idea about how/where to proceed. The travel agents kept giving every possible reason to not take us to kunzum pass. When I had an altercation with of the supervisors, he threatened to terminate my trip. He made absolutely no sense when I was just asking for what I had paid for. If they really had the intentions of taking us to kunzum pass right from the beginning, they would not have waited till the last minute and given multiple reasons for it to not happen. The itinerary that was approved by me on travel triangle is different from the final updated voucher that was followed for the last three days of the trip. I hope travel triangle chooses their associations wisely and not ruin the trip that people dream of for months together.

      Local travel agent was too bad, TT had no control over them. My TT partner also avoided picking my calls and resolving my issues. This message was my first and last TT trip. TT is no different than a local road side travel agent who make false promises. Hotel stay was good as I choose that hotel.

      I am totally happy with Imm Ventures. Stunning arrangements and personal talk. Our tour was managed by dear Ambika and I am so impressed by her. Even on Sundays or late evenings she responded to my calls and queries with the same calmness. Thanks Ambika for being such a lovely helper. Except for the last stay at Manali( Hotel Kingston Place) where the hotel was pathetic and so bad. Other than that i have no complaints regarding the trip. The Driver Varun bhai was the best. So cool so fun and yet so much good at driving. He was always ready on the given time. Never said No to any places that we wished to visit. All the other hotels we well selected , routes well planned and designed. I am thankful for this trip to Imm Ventures for providing me my budget friendly trip with the best memories. Looking forward to travel with you guys again. Cheers and love to Ambika.
