Ladakh's lesser-known neighbour, the cool mountain desert of Spiti is for explorers who set out to float from the visitor trails. Spiti's postcard towns remain remotely concealed in the lap of the powerful, infertile Himalayas of Himachal Pradesh, and it is here that you can climb along with the snow leopard and Himalayan wolf species. Visit religious communities going back over 1000 years, examine entrancing local culture and food that is unique in comparison to the remainder of India. Meet the kindest of individuals who live the harshest of lives. This is a world inside a world, as Rudyard Kipling once portrayed it.

Be that as it may, before you are good to leave, these are the things you should think about Spiti Valley. This will make your adventure simple and significantly agreeable.

1. The flighty climate

The perfect time to visit Spiti is from May to September. For the rest of the months, particularly during winters, odds are that the thick snow will obstruct each course and confine vehicles. Additionally, temperatures fall radically; it can get colder around evening and hot during the day. If you need to benefit as much as possible from your time in Spiti by exploring places, summer is the best time to visit when the snow melts and clears your way up to the valley. Make sure you carry covers and sweaters that can keep you warm.

2. Mode of transport

Two courses will take you to the Spiti Valley. One is from Shimla that goes through the Kinnaur Valley and takes at least two days. You can stay in either Reckong Peo or Kalpa(a small town in the Kinnaur region). If you take the subsequent course, it will take up to 12-14 hours and the time duration exclusively relies upon the state of the streets. The clip twists of the national expressway will make your adventure an exciting one. You can also reach Spiti via air or train.

3. Less network connectivity

If you need to stay associated with your people back home, there are landline services accessible all over the place. Likewise, BSNL has a proper system in Spiti, so you can get a SIM card from Shimla.

4. Attire as per the extreme climate conditions

Since Spiti is a mountain desert, the climate can get a smidgen confounding. During the day, the sun sparkles brilliantly and there is plenty of sunlight. During the latter half of the day, it can get cold. So the best option is that you carry garments for cold and warm weather. Full sleeved shirts, sunglasses, boots, scarves and caps are some things that should go in your backpack. Stock up on some munchies to keep food cravings under control. Aside from these factors, the most significant thing is to carry adequate money since there are not a lot of ATMs around.

5. Do opt for homestays. You won’t regret it.

You don't need to stress over convenience in Spiti. It is home to the friendliest and kindest of individuals who love inviting sightseers to stay over. The vast majority of these homestays have open rooms and views that are enchanting. There are also various inns in the territory at pretty much every stop.
