About the Destination:
In addition to the spectacular views of the snow clad peaks, Kinnaur and Spiti Valley introduces the visitors with the diverse culture and traditions of the Spitian and Kinnauri people. Kinnaur - notably known as the land of fairy tales and fantasies, has an amazing terrain of lush green valley, orchards, vineyards, snow clad peaks and cold desert mountains. The old Hindustan–Tibet Highway, runs northeast from Shimla through the Kinnaur Valley, providing access to its rich flora and fauna. Being the border district of Himachal Pradesh, the culture and language is different from other parts of the state.
'Spiti' means the 'middle country' - a name given as a result of its ties with both India and Tibet. With freckles of green over a dry weather-beaten face, the cold deserts of Spiti is characterised by stark beauty, narrow valleys and high mountains. A century ago, Rudyard Kipling in Kim called Spiti "a world within a world" and a "place where the gods live" - a description that holds true to the present day!
