Rs.42,000

 

Spiti - Pristine Lakes, World’s Highest Villages and Beautiful Deserts

With pristine lakes and some of the worlds’ highest inhabited villages, Spiti leaves you with picture-postcard memories of barren and precariously perched monasteries set against backdrop of clear blue skies. Sparse population and awesome driving opportunities offer a feeling of unexplored remoteness in an area yet untouched by tourism. At incredible altitudes with stunning landscape, often compared to Ladakh before tourists took over, Spiti makes a fantastic road-trip destination. High altitude and rugged mountains make for a bucket list drive as you reach an altitude of 15,000 Feet.

An ideal combination of traversing river beds, waterfalls,monasteries, warm locals, peace, star gazing , experiencing the milky-way and driving on single track dirt-trails.
