Overview

Himachal Pradesh is home to some of the most breathtaking valleys in the world flanked by high and mighty peaks and ranges like the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar. It is no surprise then that people from both India and outside flock here in search of different things. Be it close proximity to nature, spirituality, peace, adventure or just a few days off with friends and family, this beautiful land of Himachal Pradesh has it all. Regions like Dharamshala, Manali, and Shimla are some of the most popular in the state, but the formidable Spiti and Kinnaur have a different charm altogether.

Located at such a high altitude that people often feel the lack of oxygen, only the most adventurous dare to venture here. Kinnaur is much different from Spiti in terms of landscape with its mighty high peaks and lush green trees everywhere. Spiti is known for its naked barren mountain with no proper roads. There is only one petrol pump in the entire district! Although the two are way different, they have one thing in common- they teach their visitors how to be humble and revere nature in its rawest and purest forms.
