Description

Spiti Valley, one of the most beautiful valleys of the world, is nested in Himachal Pradesh and is famous as one of the best places to visit in India. The Spiti valley has been getting a constant tourist flow for a while because of its serenity.

Additionally, While thinking of Spiti we can easily imagine the marvelous paths that lead us to the villages and its people, have you visited the valley? No, then why wait, just hop on with us and for now, let’s tell you what we’re gonna do on the Spiti Valley road trip.

Spiti Valley also acts as a bridge between India and Tibet providing us with a place where the two cultures collide. As you begin the trip from Shimla, you will notice a gradual rise of altitude along with ruggedness.  

This duration of the Spiti Valley road trip takes a full 9-day course to complete, starting from Shimla and ending at Manali. So, you get to experience the two common ways which lead an individual to the Spiti Valley.   

Before reaching Spiti valley, you get to stay at some of the famous villages in Kinnaur Valley namely Narkanda and Chitkul. Also,  Kalpa by the River Sutlej is a town that mesmerizes us with its serene landscapes and great viewpoints. 

Other than the lofty mountains, Spiti Valley is famous for its people and the local cultures. The locals are heartwarming with their culture and the hospitality is top-notch. While you are in Spiti, you have to visit the villages of Kaza, Dhankar, Tabo, and Kibber. Without a visit to these villages, you’ll never get to experience Spiti Valley to its fullest.

Buddhism influences the Spiti Valley and here you get to see some of the best monasteries in the country. The Nako and Tabo monasteries in Spiti Valley are not only old, but they also hold the history of the valley.  

Kaza is a key village and you have to visit the main market in the Spiti Valley for it is the best place if you’re looking for souvenir items. The village has always been a trading hub and it currently hosts the Ladarcha Fair in July or August. You can even find handicraft pieces made of human bone. 

Kaza is the gateway to Hikkim which houses the highest Post Office in the world, and you may send a letter to a dear one from there if you like. You should also stop at the Key monastery which is 12 KM from Kaza. Along with its historical importance, the Tibetan monastery provides a panoramic view. 

18 KM from Kaza, you can visit Kibber, which is one of the highest inhabited villages in Spiti Valley at 14,200 ft. above sea level. Roam around the village to take in the culture or have a tour of the Kibber Wildlife Sanctuary. 

The Spiti valley is also known for its streams and lakes. Among them, Chandra Tal Lake is a famous one because of its shape and the crystal blue water. You can also enjoy camping in Spiti Valley which is organized near the beautiful lake. Also, experience the vast meadows which turn lit green in summers. 

As Spiti turns freezing cold during winters, the best time to visit Spiti Valley is during the months of May to October. The pleasant weather allows you to explore the Spiti Valley along with having adventures. Do not forget to carry your woolens as Spiti can be quite cold. 

If you love adventures, then this trip with the Wravelers will allow you to take part in many. You can river raft in Spiti or Pin or you can even take a Yak Safari to explore the surroundings.

The reasons you need to check out the Spiti Valley Tourism in 2021 are far more than many but if you still got doubts then let us clear them up while you are on a trip to Spiti Valley with JustWravel.

There's one more route and that is from Delhi to Reckong Pea, you can take a bus from Delhi heading towards the same and then change buses heading towards Kaza.

 

There are only two ways in which one can reach Spiti Valley, one is the Manali Route and the other is the Shimla Route. Out of these two, if you want to reach faster then you can choose the Manali route as it is shorter in distance but in comparison, the Shimla route contains more scenic views and make up for a full-fledged road trip.

 

Spiti Valley is the district under which Kaza is an administrative town. So, in terms of distance, there's no proper measure and we cannot have one. But once you enter Spiti Valley, you'll soon find Kaza in there after a short distance of 4-5 kilometers.

 

We prefer a smaller group size consisting of only 15-18 participants. The reason being that smaller batches are better in terms of collaborative group experience and trip coordination as well. You’re more likely to gel up with everybody in a short group as compared to a group that has more participants in number.

 

Routes to Spiti Valley are opened all around the year, but there is a little distinction. While the Shimla route is opened all around the year, the Manali route closes for a brief time due to the closing of Kunzum Pass. Moreover, the Manali route is opened from June to October.

Delhi to Spiti distance is around 700 Kilometers but we cannot go directly. There are two routes for the same, namely the Manali route and the Shimla route. Out of both, the Manali route is the short one but the Shimla route contains more scenic views. The Delhi to Spiti via Shimla is considered the ideal route for most travelers.

 

The weather conditions are not suitable for tourists and one cannot go without proper guidance. Expeditions and all keep on running during the months but those are for trained professionals only.

 

The weather conditions for Kaza in December are not suitable for traveling. Due to extreme snowfall, the weather becomes harsh for travelers and reaches up to negative 30-degree celsius.

The conditions are good enough for travelers and the winter Spiti tour is conducted starting the month of March only. 

 

If you're coming from Delhi then consider the Delhi to Kaza by road route via Shimla being the best one as it contains the best scenic views and is a little bit longer. It makes up for a good road trip if this factor is taken into consideration. The Shimla to Spiti valley distance is counted up to be a total of 413 kilometers.

 

Yes! We can visit Spiti Valley in November. But the climate changes from summer season to winter one in Spiti during the months of mid-October to Mid November, so carrying good enough winter gears and accessories is recommended.

 

No! Rohtang Pass is closed during the months of December due to heavy snowfall. 

 

The Chandigarh to Lahaul Spiti distance is about 450+ Kilometers and one can take a bus from Chandigarh for the same route. The time it takes for an individual to reach Spiti from Chandigarh is around 12-13 hours. The Chandigarh to Spiti valley distance is shorter than the distance we need to cover during the Delhi to Spiti distance.

 

In order to move from Spiti Valley to Manali, you need to first go to Chandratal which is an 8-hour drive, and then move towards Manali from there, which is also an 8 hours drive approximately. The total journey is covered in 12-16 hours depending upon the stoppage and rest time that you take in.

 

The Spiti Valley is opened all around the year but it is recommended that you do not visit the region if you're just a tourist. The reason being that Spiti receives heavy snowfall and the area becomes highly dangerous for enthusiasts or travelers, expert guidance is required otherwise conditions can become fatal too.

 

Reckong Peo is comparatively cold all around the year and you can expect snow during the winter Spiti Valley Expedition. 

 

Yes! We can visit Spiti Valley in January. But it is recommended only for expeditions and not tourists as you might need an expert's guidance there.

It was an amazing experience. Spiti is not a conventional tourist spot hence going with experts like Justwravel is better option. They introduced us to many places which we might have missed had we planned ourself(Dhankar is a good candidate). Overall the experience was good and it was value for money. Will surely plan next trip with them.

Road trip to Spiti Valley was so amazing and adventurous with JustWravel. Everything was perfect that we got to see each and every place. One of my best road trips with awesome people (Apne log). Thanks to Kamran for leading us and our pilots Ankhush & Akash Bhaiya for the memorable trip. Special thanks to Nishant for all the information and help regarding the trip. I will definitely recommend Justwravel, surely join them in their next trip.

Had the most incredible road trip to Spiti with Kamran as the group leader and Ankush bhaiya and Akash bhaiya. The itinerary was inclusive as it incorporated all the must see places. The home stays and hotels were good and the quality of food was amazing. Met new people on the trip for the first time and we bonded really well. Thank you Just Wravel for making this happen. Here’s to exploring newer places and creating more memories ??

This was my first time with Just Wravel and the experience was fantastic. You guys did an outstanding job from planning to execution! I was a part of an amazing group and our trip leader Kamran was super cool and friendly. Occasionally we shared our plans with the trip leader of what we wanted to do, got sufficient time in each location and excellent recommendations on where to eat and relax, ultimately ended up with a tailored vacation that everyone loved.

Had a great time with Justwravel. Spiti itself is so beautiful and on top of that, the service of Justwravel was the icing on the cake. Our team leader was Kamran and is a great guy having knowledge about the places and history. Overall, had a great time and met some good people on the trip as well. Will plan for some other trips with these guys as well :-)

Great trip. Shadab and Shivam were amazing. The entire experience- journey, destination, stay and food everything was great. It is going to be difficult to get over the spiti hangover. Looking forward to many more trips.

Extremely pleased to review this trip. This trip was one of the best expedition I have ever been to. With the excellent hospitality and professional behavior, our trip leaders Shadab and Shivam both were so well versed and experienced and there was not a single moment I felt as if I have come solo. Amazing vibes and for the amount they ask for the package is worth every single penny. The stays felt so homely with amazing 'ghar ka khana'. I still cannot get out of the vibes of this trip and still feel to travel with this company again and again. Extremely pleased and highly satisfied. Thankyou Justwravel for providing me with an experience that will last for a lifetime.

One of the most memorable trips. I had a great time made some real great friends. The trip leader Shivam was co-operative and friendly. He was entertaining, fun and extremely accommodating. In addition, his wide knowledge about thet place and other areas was helpful. He has great attention to detail to make sure that he could provide anything we might need. Tour - The range of sites was immensely rewarding and everything was well planned. Accommodations - Lodging and restaurants in most places was comfortable and excellent. In all cases we were very impressed and comfortable. Choice of restaurants was great and varied and meals were excellent. I would say it was the vacation of a lifetime and looking forward for more trips in the future.

Glad to be part of the Justwravel team, it was one of my best trip. I don’t think anyone can arrange the things better then Justwravel team, so I am not looking for another option in future to go with someone else.???? Food, transport all things managed very accurately by the team as in that we can’t think about the things which we received. Special thanks to the trip lead Mohit who made our trip so memorable, he knows each and everything about the trip and always ready to help someone. Will suggest each of my friend about the Justwravel qualities and try to came with few friends next time with the Justwravel team????
