Travel To Spiti
Known for its mesmerizing landscapes, rugged mountains, azure lakes, distinct culture, quaint environment, pleasing weather, Spiti Valley is one such destination which is in the bucket list of every adventure lover, and spiritual seeker as well. The thrill of riding through the rugged terrain, and fighting various obstacles such as the fiercely flowing waterfalls render Spiti as a hub for adventure seekers.
Referred to as the “Cold Desert”, the Spiti route from Manali remains closed for major part of the year, and is only open during the summer and monsoon season. Therefore, the main concern of every person traveling to this magical valley is how to reach Spiti. Due to the lack of airport, and railway station, Spiti cannot be accessed directly via flights and trains. This is the reason why most of the travelers prefer to travel by road. Even though there is no direct connectivity via flights or trains, travelers can still book tickets upto nearest airports/ railway stations if they are planning a Spiti tour. Here’s a Spiti travel guide on how to reach Lahaul Spiti via various means of transport such as flights, trains, buses, and private vehicles:
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.
The nearest railway station to Spiti Valley is Joginder Nagar Railway Station which is 360 kilometers away from the valley. Hence, while traveling to Spiti by train, one will still have to cover a long road journey.
As the Joginder Nagar railway station might be connected to all parts of the country, travelers can book tickets to Shimla Railway station as well which is another 100 kilometers extra (456 kilometers approx.) as compared to Joginder Nagar station.
