This is not one of those regular tourist trails. Ladakh's lesser-known neighbor, the cold mountain desert of Spiti, is for travelers who dare to travel off-beaten paths. Spiti Valley's scenic and quaint villages remain remotely nestled in the lap of the mighty, barren Himalayas of Himachal Pradesh, and it is here that you can hike along in Snow Leopard and Himalayan Wolf habitats, visit monasteries dating back over 1000 years, savor delicious cuisine and sample a fascinating culture different from the rest of India, amaze yourself by meeting the kindest of people who live the harshest of lives. "This is a world within a world", as Rudyard Kipling once described it.

Apart from Spiti Valley, there is a bonus treat of 2 dreamy days at Manali and Kullu Valley, which is one of the most popular Himalayan destinations. On this tour, you do not have to worry about anything, be it accommodation, transportation, or even food.

This 14-day private trip covers Chandigarh, Manali, Chandratal, Kaza, Tabo and Langza.

This hippie land is a strange blend of Indians & foreigners. Old Manali looks like it is out of a retro movie. Perhaps it is because of the fresh air or water, but you feel spiritual energy around you.
