When Himalayan calls you must visit, and it's the best experience of Life. In September I didn't know much about Spiti valley but one of my friend forced me enough to go & I got convinced, later I realised, it was one of the best experiences I had in 2018. Himalayan is all about peaks and pushing yourself.
Spiti Valley is undiscovered part of Himalayan. The name "Spiti Valley" means "The Middle Land" which is land located between India and Tibet. It's cold deserted mountain valley.
So first day was all about breathing fresh non pollutant air, fogs, getting lost in mountains, from Manali to Losar. In Spiti, locals believe that when you enter Spiti region one should never bypass Kunzum Mata temple it's tradition to take blessings and head ahead to reach destination. When you enter Spiti, the surrounding drags you in some different world when you are in middle of somewhere and the only visible part is rocks, mountains, river flowing by one side. It's alltogether different experience when you have never been to such place. It amazes you that how can a place be Soo calm, breathtaking and peaceful. Losar is village where I experienced the sound of silence. It is located approximately 13,300 feet above sea level. It is also called as Last village of Spiti Valley. In losar the best thing to do is just enjoy the the magnificent mountains, historic monastery and Mountain vibes. First day was all about adjusting to high altitudes i.e., acclimatization.
