The Spiti Valley In The Himalaya – Explore One Of The Most Remote Places In The World

Guest post by Peter Smith.

Spiti Valley is home to Himalaya’s most beautiful open-air museums. It is bordered by Lahaul and Kulu, and it is separated by the Kunzum Pass. This mountainous path is actually the main route to Kaza, Spiti’s sub-divisional headquarters. If you’re hiking, make sure to include a trip to Moon Lake, too, which is positioned 9 km away from Spiti. The superb valley is remote and secluded from the rest of Himalaya, but it’s still a place of interest you cannot miss out on your unforgettable journey to Himachal Pradesh, India. Heavily worn by wind and snow, the mountains that surround Spiti Valley are completely nude. The scenery is breathtaking, considering this isolated valley is untouched by urbanism.
