Spiti Valley via Shimla, Kalpa, Sangla


Drive through one of the most beautiful picture-perfect roads in the world while halting along in dreamy mountain villages. This Spiti Valley tour from Shimla goes through Kalpa of the Kinnaur Valley and finally enters Spiti through the village of Nako. Explore ancient thousand-year-old monasteries, ride a Yak, live in authentic homestays and spend time in some of the highest villages of Asia. Dubbed as “The world’s most treacherous road”, this Hindustan-Tibet highway is a visual masterpiece.
