About the Event

Description

Spiti Valley is a cold desert mountain valley located high in the Himalayas in the north-eastern part of Himachal Pradesh. The name “Spiti” means “The Middle Land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India. Winters in Spiti are extremely harsh and temperatures sometimes drop to as low as -20º Celsius. Winters here are frigid and there is no running water in taps. All that Spiti has in winters is the never-ending adventure and a white blanket of snow! 

Known for its rugged terrain, a trip during Winter gets a lot trickier. During this journey we cover regions in Kinnaur Valley, visit the famous Kalpa town and several known places of Spiti Valley, like Kaza, Kee , Kibber, Langza.
