Spiti is a land of amazement, nestled in the most remote corner of Himalayas, bordering Tibet. The culture and tradition shared with Tibet, this region boast of peaceful people and breathtaking landscapes which can't be witnessed anywhere else in India. Home to the snow leopards , chances of wildlife spotting are high in winter, which also does come with the discomfort of the chilly cold , travelers will experience. The sight of snow covered Spiti though takes away all the tiredness and makes lifetime everlasting memories.
