This ride starts from Shimla and ends at Kaza in the Spiti Valley. It is apt for most times of the year when the high Rohtang and Kunzum La are closed due to snow.
The Spiti Valley is a desert mountain valley located high in the Himalaya Mountains in the north-eastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The name “Spiti” means “The Middle Land”, because it is surrounded by mountain ranges on all sides. The valley can be reached from two sides one through Shimla and other one through Manali which takes you through two high passes Kunzum La and Rohtang.
