Lahaul Spiti Road Trip 09 Nights / 10 Days Tour Package
Shimla - Sarahan - Sangla - Chitkul - Tabo - Kaza via Pin valley - Manali and drive back to Chandigarh/Delhi
This Jeep safari along the ancient Trans – Himalayan trade to obscure village and Monasteries is an exciting new adventure holiday that packs so much into two weeks. Start your journey from Delhi via Shimla, to a beautiful Sangla valley in the region known as Kinnaur. There is a startling change in the landscape as you enter the district of Lahaul Spiti Valley. Spending one each night at Tabo, Kaza (head quarter of Spiti valley) & Losar include side trips to Dankar Gompa and the highest village of Kibber (4200 m). The people of Spiti valley have close affinities with Zanskar and Ladakh who are dedicated to the pre-Buddhist Bon religion. Driving out of the Spiti valley enter into Ladakh region.
Planning a trip: It is best to go in an anticlockwise direction as the ascent is gradual and you reduce chances of High Altitude Sickness in Kaza. If you reach Kaza via Manali the gain in height is sudden, from 2050m to 3600m, crossing Kunzum La in between, 4551m. On the other hand, if you stop at Narkanda (2708m), Kalpa (2960m) and Tabo (3050m) the ascent is gradual and you acclimatise well.
