Chandigarh to Shimla

Reporting at Shimla today, we get to explore the British summer capital as it has been in its glory back in time. Many of our foundations were established, brainstormed and thought through here.

Its a reporting day and place. No sightseeing included here. Dinner at Shimla Hotel.

Shimla to Sangla -

After early morning breakfast at Shimla, we head towards Sangla via interesting sights like Narkanda, Rampur, Jeori hot water spring, Kafnour, Tapri, Sangla

Sangla to Tabo

We venture deeper into Sangla valley towards Batseri, Rakcham, Chitkul (the last village of India) and return to heard towards Tabo. We leave Kinnaur district and enter Lahaul-Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh. The transition of thick jungles to dry arid desert is something one can’t miss. We enter into Hangrang valley through Koh loops after witnessing the Setluj-Spiti river confluence at Khab. Khab is the place where international waters of Sutlej enters again in India from China.

Tabo to Kaza

The vibes of peaceful, spiritual Spiti are felt as soon as we enter Tabo village. No wonder it’s popular religious place in Budhhism since 996 CE. The murals in the monastery are still intact and well maintained. After morning prayers at monastery, we visit Dhankhar. Dhankhar has been capital of Spiti back in time due to its strategic placement overlooking vast regions from North to South and entrance of Pin valley in the west.

After optional trek of Dhankhar, we head towards the current administrative capital of Spiti – Kaza.

It comes as a surprise how modern yet the roots are still in past where we get to relish on continental food in cafes to warm hospitality of the residents makes you wonder if such a heavenly place exists..!

It’s absolutely impossible to imagine a trip without shopping something regional. Seize the day, take a stroll in beautiful market of Kaza.

Kaza sightseeing 

It’s an important day of Spiti safari. You’ll be visiting most of the iconic places of Spiti valley today itself yet we will be back by lunch time and grab much needed rest as journey ahead is demanding and you need to be absolutely refreshed.

Places : Langza (the fossil village and maitreya budhha statue), Hikkim (highest post office in the world), Komik(Highest village in the world*), Ki monastery

Kaza to Nako

a picturesque little village which hosts monastery and a beautiful lake we take the glimpse of cultural Spiti here. The village hosts one of those rare artists who carve stone with Budhhist prayers.

advisory

Consult your family physician before visiting Himalayan High-altitude region, get some idea about your fitness and take their advice seriously to improve fitness level for this region.

Many Travel operators suggest some medicines to help your body adapt / acclimatize on such altitudes but some contents of the medicine may or may not be suitable for your body and result in allergic reaction, a situation none of us want to go through.

While all the above-mentioned locations are covered during the trip, weather conditions and prevailing circumstances may always influence the order of the above-mentioned route. With over a decade of us operating in this remote region, and with our trips remaining as organic and responsive to the vagaries of nature as possible, our itineraries remain flexible and adaptive.
