The name “Spiti” means “The Middle Land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India. The Spiti Valley is a desert mountain valley located high in the Himalaya mountains in the north-eastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. Spiti valley is a research and cultural center for Buddhists.
Highlights include Ki Monastery and Tabo Monastery, one of the oldest monasteries in the world and a favorite of the Dalai Lama. It was the location of the spectacular scenery and cinematography in the Indian films Paap and Milarepa, a biographical adventure tale about one of Buddhism’s most famous Tibetan saints.
In the months of April and May, before the Manali – Kaza Highway opens Spiti Valley to a busy, bustling world, there is a fantastic opportunity to explore Spiti Valley at its tranquil and peaceful best through the Hindustan – Tibet Highway starting from Shimla. While the rest of the country is baking in the smoldering summers, the high altitude mountains of the Spiti Valley are usually still trenched in snow. This Spiti Valley tour for completing so called the Buddha Circuit is perfect for you if you want a break from the heat, and only have time in months of April and May.
