Spiti Valley Tourism

Exploring the breathtaking landscapes of Spiti Valley: A must-do on your list of things to do in Spiti Valley.

When you enter Spiti Valley, you are greeted by a long stretch of twisting road and valleys that offer amazing views of the chilly desert and snow-capped mountains. Being one of the coldest regions in the nation, Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh, which is surrounded by the Himalayas on all sides, is situated at an elevation of 12,500 feet above sea level and receives only around 250 days of sunshine annually.

Since the Spiti Valley separates India and Tibet, the name Spiti means “The Middle Land”. Spiti, as its name suggests, is home to a number of monasteries. Notably the magnificent Key Monastery, which is the greatest monastery in the entire Spiti Valley and over a thousand years old.

Spiti Valley, a sparsely populated region, is a haven for adventure seekers, offering a variety of trekking routes and mountain passes. Spiti valley tourism enthusiasts can experience the breathtaking beauty of the second-longest glacier in the world, Bara-Shigri Glacier, visible in stunning 360-degrees from Kunzum La. All of these treks begin in Kaza (the capital of Spiti and a central hub for Spiti Valley Tourism), from where you establish your base camp, and lead to numerous peaks offering panoramic views of the entire Himalayan range

From Dhankar Monastery to Dhankar Lake, a short 1.5-kilometer hike along the Spiti River offers stunning views of the towns below. You can unwind at the Dhankar Lake itself while breathing in the crisp alpine air. The water in the Chandratal Lake, where you may also visit a mysterious place, changes during the day from reddish to orange to blue to emerald green. Since Spiti is blocked off from the rest of the nation for around six months out of the year by the heavy Himalayan snow, the only time Spiti is easily reached by motorway is during the summer.

It was fun planning my first planned holiday with Pluto. They have very reliable links in local areas. Nitin was my POC for the trip and he managed it so well that every small request and query had the fastest solution and response. I will highly recommend him and will plan my next trip through his dedicated work. Altaf(driver) in Srinagar was very well mannered and entertaining. He was dedicated to best customer service and no doubt he achieved it all the way. I requested for hotel upgrade and it was handled quickly on last minute. I highly recommend Pluto and their services for planned holidays. Ask for Nitin and Altaf(if in Srinagar).

Tour was good, initial experience was not good with the tour operator, I had asked for aura grand hotel with early check in, at the time of finalising the plan and making the payment, they were saying that we will get the aura grand hotel in Amritsar. But at last moment same hotel was not provided and they forced us to check-in in their own property which is Diamond Villa in Amritsar which was not so good. Mr. Vikram Rana tried fooling till last moment, Mr. Anurag also not provided correct information about the hotel booking. However our driver Mr. VINAY (BUNTY) was very good. Mr. Nitin of Pluto helped very well in executing the trip in good manner.
