The word “Spiti” means the middle land, that is the land between Tibet and India. But Spiti is much more than just what that name meets. Spiti, one of Himachal Pradesh’s most unexplored destinations, is located at a very high altitude, and is also considered a desert mountain valley. The ice-topped mountains, the river that leads you through the valley like a shadow, the waterfalls and the Grey-Blue sky, you can go on and on about the place, but you’re still not doing justice. Every year, Spiti attracts a large number of adventurers.
Spiti Valley ‘s rugged, desolate and secluded landscape in Himachal Pradesh is one of India’s most sought destinations. Spiti is one of the least developed regions in terms of public transport, because of its geographical location.
Although Lahul and Spiti district population density are the lowest (two-person per sq. km) in India, it is in dire need of good public transport due to the tourist rush. Traveling by private car or hired cab is beneficial in the region.
Road Trip To Spiti Valley
Day 1: Delhi to Shimla
We drove all the way to Shimla from Delhi over the night for our road trip to Spiti Valley, making a halt here and there for rest and refreshments. Though it took us 12 hours to cover the entire distance of 360 km, the trip was very enjoyable, thanks to my fun-loving friends.
Day 2: Exploring Shimla
After reaching Shimla in the morning we explore the Shimla throughout the day & enjoyed our evening at the beautiful mall road of Shimla.
