What We Love
Drive through one of the most remote areas in India, amidst the lowest population density and the world’s largest inhabited villages, coupled with colossal views of the Himalayas.
An unforgettable drive through the Kunzum La Pass, often very difficult to navigate, offers the most incredible experience of the enlightening Himalayan range.
The most rustic, surreal experience in the Himalayas.
Rejuvenating walks along the villages and riverbeds.
What to Expect
Charming riverbed views/ Majestic Himalayan ranges/ Glorious high altitude deserts/ Beautiful destinations in Upper Kinnaur and Spiti/ Ancient Hindu temples/ Serene Buddhist monasteries/ Stroll along idyllic villages/ Witness the incredible Kunzum Pass and Rohtang Pass/ Invigorating treks/ Breathtaking mountain Passes/ Riverside strolls/ Rustic camps/ Adorable boutique hotels/ Savoury local cuisine
Why Is This Perfect for You
Sangla & Spiti Valley circuit is one to travel for offbeat character of the destinations, stunning riverside / Himalayan / Desert like views with a bit of walking, soft trekking, offering a compelling experience for friends travelling together.
When to Go
If you want to see and experience driving through these Passes, the Rohtang and Kunzum La Passes opens to traffic during the first week of June. So it is advised to travel here between the months of June-September.
A notable point here is that the entire region (except Manali), does not experience the monsoons as it is situated in the rain shadow region. The winter months are of course a big no-no, and owing to weather conditions, snowing and the biting cold, the Passes are off-limits.
