Activities In Spiti
Be it a short sojourn or a long-time stay, Spiti Valley’s moon-like landscape has plenty of thrills and experiences to offer. Between spinning prayer wheels at Buddhist monasteries and embarking on Pin Parvati Trek, there are innumerable things to do in Spiti Valley.
Kaza remains the main administrative centre of the Spiti. Being the main town, travellers can enjoy sightseeing of Key Gompa, Komic Monastery, and later on, visit the local market area for the best options of shopping in Spiti. From Tibetan handicrafts to local jewellery, there are plenty of things to bargain for.
Spiti Valley trek passes through Kibber, Kaza, Komic, Hikkim, Demul, and Chemai Lepcha Pass. The tiny village of Mud in Spiti serves as a base camp for two major Himalayan treks through Pin Parvati National Park. Pin Parvati Pass Trek is one of the most challenging treks in India. It takes usually 9 days to finish this trek via 5,319-m Pin Parvati Pass that connects the fertile Kullu Valley with semi-arid Pin Valley which is a part of the Spiti Valley. One of the relatively unknown treks in Spiti Valley, Pin Bhabha Pass Trek is a spectacular trail to reach Mud Base Camp in Spiti from Kafnu village via Bhaba Pass. There are several other options for single day trekking in Spiti Valley near Kaza.
Camping in Spiti Valley allows one of the most rewarding experiences. What better way to spend the night with your friends than chatting and singing around a bonfire and watching the beautiful night skies. Camping at Chandra Tal is an unforgettable experience worth having. Another adventure activity to enjoy on a holiday is rafting in Spiti Valley. Spiti-Pin River system is ideal to conquer its white rapids between Class I and Class IV from Rangrik to Sichling and Nadang.
Celebrated in the month of July, Ladarcha Fair is probably the largest festival in Spiti Valley. Buddhist followers from Spiti, Lahaul, and Kinnaur gather in Kaza to take part in Ladarcha Fair. Travellers can enjoy shopping, music, traditional dance performances and feasts to make the most of their trip to Spiti. Ki Cham Festival, Tsheshu Festival, Gochi Festival, Tsheshu Festival, and Chakhar Mela are other notable fairs and festivals in Spiti Valley.
Situated in the higher elevations of the Himalayas, Pin Valley National Park is home to endangered animals such as snow leopards, Siberian ibex, Tibetan gazelle, and more. Make sure to explore the town of Kibber for its whitewashed mud houses and barley farms. Wildlife safaris in Kibber Wildlife Sanctuary allow lucky travellers to spot elusive snow leopards, red fox, and Himalayan wolf in the winter season.
Driving through Kunzum La while coming to Kaza from Manali is one of the best things to do in Spiti Valley. The 4551-m-high Kunzum Pass forms the watershed between the valleys of Lahaul and Spiti. For those seeking off-the-beaten-path adventures in Spiti, Dhankar Lake is an ideal alternative. Situated at 4,270 metres near the Dhankar Monastery, this lake is a mesmerizing spot with sweeping views over the valley and of the twin peaks of Manirang. The nearby crumbling ruins of Dhankar Fort is another must-see attraction here.
Stargazing, yak safaris, and volunteering in Spiti Valley are other top things to do in Spiti. Travellers can help local communities to develop sustainable work and provide teaching or language skills to local children.

Javed's 6 days trip to SpitiCab driver was good, Spiti hotel could've been better, we couldn't go to chadrataal lake due to bad weather conditions so no refund for that has been given neither the extra day we spent in spiti was adjusted for our camping amount which we couldn't do due to bad weather conditions.
Anish's 8 days trip to SpitiHi, From the perspective of Travel Triangle, all the things were great & we had a nice trip. However, I have some comments on the agent Travel Talkies. There's a scope of improvement on that part. The on-trip communication was not there, we were unexpectedly pushed having veg mean every night and they asked for extra money for availing Non-veg dinner (I clearly mentioned we all are not vegetarian) In some cases, the hotel was closed way before our booking date but we did not get any intimation on that part. In the middle of a fine evening when we reached our destination, we found that the hotel is closed 20 days back and we had to shift to a Home Stay. Itenary was too hectic. We almost travelled more than 1500+ KMs in 8 days.
Jayanth's 5 days trip to SpitiNikita was our coordinator, she has been in constant touch with us right from the planning of the trip to completion of the trip. We had initially planned to go to Kaza but due to weather we couldn't continue with the itinerary, Nikita made another itineary in manali on the last moment and it turned out to be good. This guys give the best service and any one who is looking to travel around spiti, manali should consider them to plan their trip
Aarushi's 7 days trip to SpitiIt was a fanstastic experience. At first I was quite skeptical about this group tour because it was a new experience for me. I have never travelled in a grouo with strangers that too in a land with zero network connectivity. But fortunately had the most amazing people join us and also our tour guide was quite helpful. Our tour guide made sure we explored each and every spot mentioned in itinerary and at the same time not rushing. He gave us enough time to explore each place and capture enough memories to last for lifetime. All in all Immventures and team and Travel Triangle restored my faith in group travelling and I am grateful to them for giving us such a nice experience. Kudos Team Immventures!

Chiragsanghvise's 5 days trip to SpitiExpected a driver who can guide us, give more information about places we visited. Overall experience was good. Worth it in given budget.

Hotels & Food Our trip is 8 days long and we almost stayed in 7 different hotels 1. Shimla --> Rajat Hotel (Food is decent but Not the hotel ) shimla is a good place and they can get better hotel 2. Sangla --> IBex Camp (Excellent view and decent food with the surrounding nothing to complain about) 3. Kalpa --> Tab Exotic, ( Decent hotel with Decent Food) 4. Tabo --> Sidharth (Nice hotel with Nice food ) 5. Kaza --> Spiti Valley -> (decent hotel with decent food) then can do little better here as its also big tourist place 6. Chandratal --> didnt stay in Tenzin camp due to heavy snow 7. Manali --> Mountain View --> Nice Hotel with Nice food 8. Chandigarh --> Hotel Oscar Regency --> (Worst hotel and worst food) we stayed for night room is full of alcohol and cigarette smell Overall : Its great trip, and on the last day we got the snow fall my kids enjoyed it a lot and its beautiful journey. Precautions: Food is only Parotha, Rice and Bread available mostly, as it takes a lot of journey if you are going towards spiti better keep some snacks of your own and some pickles in case you miss your home food
Manjushaw's 9 days trip to SpitiOverall a very good and seamless experience. Initial assistance before the trip by Ambika was very helpful and she clarified all the doubts all the time. Covered a lot of places in the short time span of the trip. Anil managed the trip well, also took us to Apple orchid on request while it was not part of the itinerary. He took a lot of photos of the group and always tried to encourage everyone for the group activities. Areas which can be improved upon is the lunch timing, and may be updating the itinerary to visit chandrataal during day time. We reached chandrataal late in the evening, and it was dark out there, so we asked Anil if he could take us again in the morning and he did that for us. It snowed that night, and in the morning it was all white. The traveller couldn't start due to freezing cold weather, so we trekked to the lake and the trek was the beautiful and so was the lake.
Ankit's 7 days trip to Spiti1Our Chandratal Camp was canceled due to snow fall, so Classic Expeditions booked a good hotel for us in Manali including breakfast and Dinner without any charges. Camps were very good. In camps they provided warm water for drink and bath. Food quality was good in Camps. Please improve food quality at hotels
Mithila's 5 days trip to SpitiIt was an amazing experience. Eveything was completely sorted and the trip was scheduled very wisely. The vehicle was great and the driver was helpful and cooperative. No issues faced till the end of the trip. The trip was perfect. Except one little issue. The pick up point of the bus from Delhi was not confirmed earlier. The pick up point changed thrice and it was a lot of inconvience. Apart from that, everything perfecto!
