About Spiti Valley Tour
Spiti is truly a delight for those who are looking for the roads less travelled. Untamed mountains, vivid landscapes, monks, cascading rivers and the bluish Chandratal Lake make Spiti, a paradise for offbeat travelers. The Spiti Circuit is indeed the best way to explore the entire valley; we call it a circuit tour as we just don’t stick to the usual itinerary for Lahaul-Spiti valley but also encompass the Kinnaur valley, which is an eye charmer known for the drastic change in greenery and laidback hamlets. Right from the queen of Hill stations Shimla to the tucked away paradise of Chitkul-Sangla Valley, this trip is bound to give you a once in a lifetime experience for sure. The Budda land embraced by the monks is truly a bliss to witness and connect with your innerself. So, what stops you from taking this dream Himalayan Road trip with Trikon! Come on let’s land to the Monkland and soak in some peace and tranquility.
