Spiti Valley –The vivid change in terrain starts the moment you cross over the rohtang pass. The snow clad mountains and deep valley of chandra river on one side and on the other give you a feeling of being totally on a different planet.

Climbing the lofty heights of Kunzum pass ( at the height of 14500 ft) gives you an amazing feeling making you feel as if you have reached the skies. The great sculptures present over hundreds of years on the side of the river are carved by the wind and snow & the small villages dominated by buddhist religious symbols are definitely a sight to behold.
