Spiti Valley, a part of Lahaul-Spiti District, lies in the north eastern region of Himachal Pradesh. Dominated by the Tibetan Buddisht culture, the region has been shadowed by Ladakh in terms of popularity due it's remoteness. The winters in spiti are wonderful to say the least, the barren hills are draped in white tranforming the landscape completely. On this driving cum hiking holiday we let you experience one of the less popular winter destination in the Himalaya as we drive through winding roads and hike on snow trails.
