About Spiti Located at about 12,500 ft in Himachal Pradesh, the Spitti-Kinnaur Valley is nothing but a barren stretch of high-altitude desert. So what is it that draws nature lovers to this place? The solitude. The sky high Himalayan peaks all around, the freshwater river, the jewel-blue sky, the russet landscape dotted with the noble monasteries. The Spitti-Kinnaur valley is truly a treat to the sore eyes! One of the best Spiti Kinnaur Valley tour packages involves zipping through the Himalayan roads in a car. People here follow the Vajrayana Buddhism and the Key Gompa is the biggest monastery in the region. The Spitti Valley is one of the least populated regions in India. It is connected to rest of the country via the Rohtang Pass at 13,054 ft and Kunzum Pass at 15,059 ft. It is not easy to survive in the valley's harsh cold weather without the warmth and help from the locals. Homestays along the journey make sure you are indeed welcome to enjoy their hospitality.
