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.
Traveling to Spiti by road is one of the most adventurous as well as convenient options for people traveling from nearby cities like Chandigarh, Delhi, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and more. There are various routes via which one can reach Spiti. Travelers can either take the route from Manali via Rohtang Pass, from Shimla, or from Srinagar via Kargil. A Spiti Valley map provides useful information to tourists traveling by road via these routes.
One can choose to travel to Spiti Valley by bus, taxi, or a personal vehicle. Here’s a list of cities with their respective distance from Spiti:
Distance between Manali and Spiti Valley: 196 kilometers (approx.)
Distance from Shimla to Spiti Valley: 416 kilometers (approx.)
Distance from Delhi to Spiti Valley: 737 kilometers (approx.)

Trip to SpitiI 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

Trip to SpitiHotel 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.
Trip to Spitivisited spiti last week, all the arrangements was superb, car driver rattan lal was very experienced, so we executed our trip as per our plannings, agent was cooperative, they negotiated most of our demands, food was too good, over all one more feather in the nest...spiti rocks. www.facebook.com/arijit.sen.in/albums/thecallofspiti
Trip to SpitiAs 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.
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.
