Overview

Route : Delhi-Kalka-Shimla-Thanedar-Sangla-Kalpa-Tabo-Kaza-Losar-Manali-Delhi

Kinnaur, Lahaul and Spiti are remote Himalayan Valleys. Stark, exciting and primitive, these valleys offer magnificent mountain-scape, rugged beauty of their rocky escapements and the splendor of their snow covered peaks.
A fascinating land of Buddhist culture, remote mountain villages and medieval monasteries, which remains relatively untouched and undiscovered by mass tourism.
Home to some of the oldest Buddhist monasteries in the world, this trail provides our guests with a personal introduction into remote mountain life, culture and Buddhist heritage. Set on the highlands of this magnificent valley, the trail traverses along some of Asia’s highest villages, each of which are adorned by unique and ancient Buddhist monasteries and temples.
