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 15-day private India trip covers Chandigarh, Manali, Chandratal, Kaza, Tabo, Langza, Losar & Tirthan Valley.

The largest city of India, Delhi is considered to be the city with a heart. The city’s importance lies not just in its past glory as the seat of empires and magnificent monuments, but also in the rich and diverse cultures.

A private car will pick you up from Delhi Airport and transfer you to the hotel. Check-in at the hotel and relax. Get over the jet lag. Evening at your leisure. Overnight stay will be at the hotel in Delhi.

Day 2 - Chandigarh

After breakfast check out from the hotel & head towards Chandigarh - ‘The City Beautiful’. It is India's first planned city, quite distinct from the rest of the country and considerably better organized. It is also one of the cleanest cities in India. The most striking thing about the city is the expanse of resplendent blue sky with the mountains in the backdrop.

Reach Chandigarh by afternoon. Check-in at the hotel on arrival. In the late afternoon visit the famous Rock Garden which is a sculpture garden built in the year 1957 by Officer Nek Chand single-handedly in his spare time and has become a long-standing symbol of imagination and novelty in the city.

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. Later in the evening visit Mall Road, the heart of the town. Lined with multiple hotels, restaurants, and bars, this busy commercial center also houses numerous shops and emporiums. You can hang out and shop for local stuff and souvenirs.
