Spiti means the middle land & it lies between Tibet & tourists favorite Himachal Pradesh, south-east of Ladakh. Any person who loves driving in the Himalayas should definitely take a trip to Lahaul & Spiti valley. The terrain is harsh, desolate & inhospitable but your final destination makes it all worth it.The dominant feature of Spiti valley is its Buddhist culture. The naked & rugged snow top mountains, sparsely populated villages at long distances, beautiful blue sky & equally beautiful blue Spiti River are the main features of this isolated land.
Location: Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh, India
