The topography of Spiti is marked by high mountains and narrow river valleys with flat land being an uncommon occurrence. The rugged climate and high altitude makes the region somewhat difficult for human habitation. The great range of the main Himalayas in back ground is beautiful and refreshing. 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 are hospitable and in villages still maintain the centuries old tradition.
