Tour Details

Spiti Valley is a cold desert mountain valley located high in the Himalayas in the north-eastern part of the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The name “Spiti” means “The middle land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India.

Local population follow Vajrayana Buddhism similar to that found in the nearby Tibet and Ladakh regions. The valley and surrounding region is one of the least populated regions in India and is the gateway to the northernmost reaches of the nation. Along the northern route from Manali, Himachal Pradesh or Keylong via the Rohtang Pass or Kunzum Pass respectively, the valley lies in the North Eastern section of the Indian state Himachal Pradesh, and forms part of the Lahaul and Spiti district. The sub-divisional headquarters (capital) is Kaza, Himachal Pradesh[2] which is situated along the Spiti River at an elevation of about 12,500 feet (3,800 m) above mean sea level.

Lahaul and Spiti district is surrounded by high mountain ranges. The Rohtang Pass, at 13,054 feet (3,979 m), separates Lahul and Spiti from the Kullu Valley. Lahul and Spiti are cut off from each other by the higher Kunzum Pass, at 15,059 feet (4,590 m).[2] A road connects the two divisions, but is cut off frequently in winter and spring due to heavy snow. The valley is likewise cut off from the north up to eight months of the year by heavy snowfalls and thick icing conditions. A southern route to India proper is periodically closed for brief periods in the winter storms of November through June, but road access is usually restored a few days after storms end via Shimla and the Sutlej in the Kinnaur district.

Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Manali

After arriving at the hotel in Manali, you will be greeted by the Trip 360 team.
You will have some time to settle in for the day and acclimatise to the altitude.
There are a number of activities to do in Manali and one can spend the day exploring this lovely valley.
You can hike and walk many trails and enjoy the scenery.
One can also do some sightseeing, as there are a few picturesque temples and a small museum here as well.

Day 2Manali - Kaza

Get ready for the first day of adventure during this tour!
In the early morning, you will be picked up from your hotel for the 10 – 11 hours scenic drive across the Rohtang Pass
and Kunzum Pass to Kaza.
Rohtang Pass is about 50 kilometres away from Manali and is one of the high altitudes passes in India, sitting at
almost 4,000 metres high.
This pass splits the Kullu Valley and the Lahaul and Spiti valleys and is located in the Pir Panjal Range of the
Himalayas.
You will really enjoy the incredible views of snow-capped peaks and hills during this drive.
As we continue on further from here, we will then reach the Kunzum Pass, which is even higher at almost 4,600
metres.
Finally, we will get to Kaza, which is considered to be a high altitude cold desert of sorts that has a similar terrain to
Ladakh and Tibet.
This commercial town is situated near the Spiti River

Day 3Kaza - Tabo

We start our cycling adventure with a fairly easy 50-kilometre ride from Kaza to Tabo.
The ride is predominantly downhill, however, there are several uphill sections on the drive as expected with every
mountain ride.
Kaza lies at an altitude of about 3,600 metres and Tabo is at an altitude of about 3,280 metres.
At Tabo, after checking into the guest house we will visit the Tabo Monastery, which is said to be over 1,000 years old.
The walls of the monastery are adorned with beautiful frescos and mud statues.
You may need to carry a torch to be able to see these, as it is quite dark inside the temples.

Riding distance : 50 km

Day 4Exploring Tabo

Get ready for a challenging but rewarding day ahead.
You will ride on some downhill sections of the trail followed by several climbs.
The last 8 kilometres to Gyu Village is a very steep climb, so be prepared for a spectacular ride with amazing views of
the Himalayan peaks surrounding you.
On reaching Gyu, you will begin to witness a little piece of the serene mountain life that the people here experience.
This quaint place is relatively secluded and unknown amongst travellers, as there are only a few hundred inhabitants. We will get the chance to visit a chamber, which houses a mummified holy man that is believed to be 500-600 years
old. Though the mummy is closed to tourists for viewing, one can see the mummy through the window of the chamber
where it is kept.
After this, we will ride back to Tabo.

Riding distance : 68 km

Day 5Tabo - Kaza

Komic, the highest village in Asia is about 23 kilometres away from Kaza.
This means that there will be a massive 23 kilometre incline that we will need to tackle today.
The panoramic views at Komic will leave you speechless.
You will see spectacular meadows that sit above 4,000 metres, bright blue skies, and beautiful monasteries with
fluttering prayer flags, which are all delightful to the senses.
After Komic, you will ride downhill to Langza Village and then continue downhill to Kaza where we spend the night.

Riding distance : 58 km

Day 6Exploring Kaza

Give your bikes a rest today and enjoy your time exploring this gorgeous mountain town.
About 4 kilometres away, one can venture to see the ancient Tangyud Monastery and even walk around and take
beautiful photographs of the vast mountain ridges.
If you like, you can even go to see the Key Gompa, or interact with the locals in the Kibber and Gette villages.
Those who love nature can think about making a trip to the Pin Valley National Park, which is a protected land for
Himalayan high altitude wildlife.

Day 7Kaza - Chandra Taal

Today we drive to Chandra Taal, which means Lake of the Moon, as is crescent-shaped.
This lake sits at around 9 kilometres from the Kunzum Pass and at an altitude of 4,300 metres.

trekkers.
