The scattered villages comprise of whitewashed mud-brick homes amid rugged mountains and barley fields.

Spiti- An unfamiliar Land

A cold dessert mountain valley, an unfamiliar land located high in Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh- “Spiti- The middle Land”. It is well known as middle land that is the land between Tibet and India. The place till date has managed to preserve the rarest of aspects of the Buddhist Culture with some of the oldest Buddhist Monasteries and temples in the world still standing alive there.

It is one of the few unfamiliar places in the world. Only the most adventurous wanderers travel to such unfamiliar places. One of the reasons of this unfamiliarity is the height and the route that leads to the place. The Rohtang Pass, at 13,054 feet separates Spiti from the Kullu valley. Moreover, the valley and surrounding region is one of the least populated regions in India and is the gateway to the northernmost reaches of the nation.
