Lahaul – Spiti ValleyTrans Himalaya Adventure Lahaul & Spiti valley is one of the most remote parts of the Indian Himalayas. It is the land called cold desert with bits of green patches. It is a country of fascinating valleys, windswept landscapes and quite villages. Rudyard kipling in his book ‘kim’ describes Spiti as ‘a world within a world’, ‘a place where the gods live, which is true to the present day. Spiti is also called as ‘the middle land’. For centuries, spiti has had an introversive culture where life remained focused around its monasteries. As we will be driving close to Shimla—the summer capital of the British India, we have added this also into the itinerary. We enjoy the toy train ride to Shimla as we climb the Shivalik hills. Shimla echos the imperial past. We visit the Regal buildings in Shimla. The Drives through entire valley are very rewarding and the visit to silent villages and the isolated monasteries are very interesting and picturesque.
