Spiti Valley Tour
& Spiti are among the most spectacular and sparsely populated regions
on Earth. Crossing the Rohtang La from Manali, they are the most desolate
northern and eastern tracts of Himachal Pradesh. The districts are host to the
famous Chandra and Bhaga valleys. Over the Kunzum La (4590M) you pass into the
rain shadow of the Great Himalayan Range arriving into Spiti, showcasing
snow-topped mountains, a high-altitude desert, punctuated by tiny
patches of greenery and villages of whitewashed houses clinging to the sides of
rivers and meltwater streams.
Taal commonly referred to as the “Moon Lake”; is a high altitude lake at an
altitude of 4,300 meters, the source of Chandra River. Its name “Chandra” is
believed to be derived from its moon-like shape. Sitting in between high rising
snowcapped peaks, this place is heaven for anyone who has even the slightest of
interest in photography or nature. During the night, the sky lights up with
countless stars and is perfect for some excellent night captures.
