Spiti valley in Himachal is a place of wonder. Spiti in Tibetean means the Middle land as it is located between Tibet and India, and it retains a very strong Buddhist culture. Spiti is characterized by barren lands, denudated rock faces, hostile roads and bone chilling temperature. However it also boasts of ancient monasteries, retaining their stoic nature housing a treasure trove of ancient flags, thankas and prayer wheels. Quaint villages dot the highway, and landscapes that are a photographers dream. Spiti is also mostly a journey into yourself. Experience the austere beauty of Lahaul with a spectacular night under the stars at Chandertaal. Long drives, a rugged landscape all around you and a few good companions should make it a journey you will never ever forget.

Highlights of the trip will be:

1. Exploring the highest village in Asia, Komic, situated at 14800ft above sea level. The Komic monastery there is perched atop a hill. Also going for village photo walks and spending the entire day there.

2. Experience local life first hand with as you spend a night at a homestay in Komic.

3. Gain a unique insight into the lives of nuns as you spend a day interacting with them and volunteering at a monastery.

4. Spending a day (and a night) at the mesmerizing Chandertaal Lake in Lahaul. Located at 14100ft, its name of the 'lake of the moon' is due to its crescent shape. A 45 minute trek will take us there.

This day head out into the heart of the Spiti Valley to Kaza. Relax at the stay after the long drive at your charming hotel. This beautiful hotel looks like a large Himalayan home, and its uniqueness lies in its location, which is right besides the jewel of Kaza the Sakya Monastery.
The capital of Spiti, Kaza sits on the eroded flood plain of the Spiti River and is the biggest settlement you'll encounter in this empty corner of the planet. It feels a bit like a small frontier town with an easygoing pace. Jagged mountains rise on either side while the river coils across the valley floor like twisted locks of Medusas hair. The colourful Sakya Gompa stands just above the main road in New Kaza (south of the Kaza Nullah), while the ramshackle bazaar and whitewashed buildings of Old Kaza spread out on the north side of the stream.
