Spanning 410km and curving along a national park thriving with biodiversity, a road trip from Shimla to the Spiti Valley (pronounced “piti”) is one of the most enchanting and gorgeous journeys you can undertake. Extending at least 3,000m above sea level the Spiti Valley is home to plentiful trekking routes, ancient monasteries, clear lakes and an utterly spellbinding windswept landscape. The name means “middle land” and its rugged terrain draws adventurers from far and wide.
