Spiti Valley, the name that creates many pictures in mind of those who haven’t been there. While some picture lush green hills, mountain rivers, waterfalls, others think of it as a a barren wasteland, a cold desert very similar to Ladakh. Whatever the picture is; it attracts thousands of tourists every year because a journey to Spiti is an experience that you will cherish for a long time; probably all of your life. The name “Spiti” means “The Middle Land” which it actually is; because it is in fact the land between Tibet and India. And because of this very reason, it possesses a unique combination of both Indian and Tibetan cultures. A distinct lifestyle derived primarily out of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs, gelled so well that its hard to tell them apart.
I have been blogging about Spiti for quite some time now; ever since I started this blog actually. Over last few years, I have written several articles covering different aspects of a journey to Spiti. These articles are spread over numerous pages and shuffling through trying to find the information that you need can actually be quite a task. So I thought to add this one sticky page at the front; more like an index to all the information.
