Overview

Nobody describes the Spiti Valley better than Rudyard Kipling when he says, “Surely the Gods must live here, this is no place for men.”

Spiti Valley also known as The Middle Land is Ladakh’s lesser-known and more remote neighbor. Spiti valley is home to remotest, highest and few of most beautiful villages settled in lap of Trans Himalayas. Here you will find least densely populated villages to 1000-year-old monasteries, culture and cuisine so different from rest of India. Spiti valley is also home to turquoise colored rivers to some of the most beautiful High altitude lakes. This is a world, which has the harshest of winters, but home to warmest of people.

Travelling through high passes, serene lakes, ancient monasteries, listening to tranquil sound of chants, feeling the chill in the air and smile on your face these are some of the experiences we promise you on a road trip you will remember for the rest of your life. Come & experience a visual delight for your soul and body as we lazily ride through long and winding roads. Come and get Spitified with us on a journey across cultures so diverse and land so different.
