Tourist Places In Spiti

Spiti Valley is home to countless monasteries, waterfalls, treks, mountain streams, and glaciers. There is always something new lurking around the corner of a road waiting to be explored by travellers, honeymooners, adventure seekers, and nature lovers. Located in the eastern Himachal Pradesh, the valley is nestled between the Tibetan Plateau and Himalayan ranges. Its name literally translates as the “Middle Ground”. From the gorgeous treks to majestic monasteries, there’s no dearth of places to visit in Spiti Valley in Himachal. Let’s take a look at the famous tourist places in Spiti Valley up close:

Kaza is the largest settlement and the administrative centre of the Spiti Valley. During the summer months, the town serves as a base camp for adventures in Spiti Valley. The town is located some 120 km from Manali via Rohtang Pass. It remains a popular hotspot in the winter months when the tourist activity is less. Dhankar Fort, Gette Village, Langza village, and Komic monastery are top tourist places near Kaza. Visitors in Kaza can explore mud-brick homes, local non-profit organizations such as EcoSphere, and pray with lamas at the monasteries.

All major tours of sightseeing in Spiti Valley begin from Buddhist monasteries perched atop hills. With an altitude of 4,166 meters, Key Monastery or Key Gompa is the largest monastery in the Spiti Valley. Travellers can admire the 14th-century monastic architecture and wall paintings at Key Gompa in Kaza. One of the oldest Buddhist enclaves in India, Tabo Monastery features a priceless collection of scroll paintings (thangkas), statues, frescos, and manuscripts. Dhankar Gompa is located between towns of Kaza and Tabo. Tayul Monastery, Kungri Monastery, and Tangyud Monastery are top monasteries in Spiti Valley.

One of the top places to visit in Spiti Valley, Chandratal Lake is a popular spot for camping and stargazing. Located about 9 kilometres from Kunzum Pass, the lake lies at an altitude of about 4,300 metres. Kunzum Pass connects the Kullu Valley and Lahaul Valley with Spiti Valley. This high mountain pass separates the fertile valleys of Kullu with the semi-arid valley of Spiti. It is on the route from Manali to Kaza. Known for its cold desert landscape, Pin Valley National Park is spread across Lahaul and Spiti Valleys. The Kibber Wildlife Sanctuary and Kibber Monastery, 20 kilometres from Kaza, are other notable tourist attractions in Spiti Valley.

Nako, near the Indo-China border, is another popular tourist attraction near Spiti Valley. The town of Tabo is situated between Rekong Peo and Kaza. After traversing a length of about 150 km through the valley, the Spiti River flows into Satluj River at Namgia in Kinnaur district. The town of Hikkim is known for being India’s highest polling station at an elevation of 4,572 meters. Suraj Tal, Rohtang Pass, Keylong, Baralacha Pass, Reckong Peo, Kalpa, and Chitkul are major places near Spiti Valley.

    • Trip to Spiti

      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.
