The topography of Spiti is marked by high mountains and narrow river valleys with flat land being an uncommon occurrence.

Wild life as Ibex and Thar can be seen in the herds as well as the snow wolves too.

You will explore the century’s old monasteries which belong to Tibetan Buddhism where monks practice meditation and other monastic rituals preserving old Stucco images and Thangkas depicting different life stories of Guru Padmasambhava, the founder of Gelug-Pa sect, people of Spiti live with their herds of Yak, Sheep and goat; they grow Barely and other vegetables. They are hospitable and in villages still maintain the centuries old tradition. This is leisure trek, accessible for all.
