Spiti Valley is a vast cold desert mountain valley located in Himalayas in the north-eastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The word "Spiti" depicts "The Middle Land", which means it is the land between India and Tibet.
The subdivisional headquarters or capital of this valley is Kaza, which is situated near the Spiti River at an elevation of around 3,800 meters. There are two routes by which one can reach Spiti, which are from Manali via Rohtang and Kunzum Pass and from Shimla via Hindustan Tibet highway, which is often considered one of the most treacherous road.
Being one of the remotest regions of India which remains blocked for most of the year is ideal for Wravelers looking to explore places. A circular 9 days road trip can be the best way to explore this amazing place called Spiti.
