More Tips on Spiti Valley from Travelers
- This is the first village in Spiti we arrived at. I was instantly fascinated by the level of Tibetan influence in these Indian mountains. Architecture based on buddhist monasteries (monastic design) in the backdrop of massive barren mountains is a popular theme here. Access to the rest of the state is limited from here and life, as seen here, can be quite tough.
