Gette Village is a very small village located near Kibber Village of Spiti Valley.Gette is very distinct from all other villages in Spiti Valley because of the fact that there are only 7-8 houses in the village.So it kind of takes you back in time giving you an idea how difficult life in the old days must have been.Not that it is easy now! Gette falls on the road between Kibber and Tashigang and there is another route to Gette that very few people know of.
How to reach Gette
Gette falls among the belt of high altitude villages of Kibber-Gette-Tashigang.Gette is around 26 Kilometers away from Kaza. There are two ways of reaching Gette.First one is for you to continue on the Kaza to Kibber road and as the village of Kibber comes into view you will see a board pointing to a dirt road pointing towards Tashigang.So ypu will have to take that road towards your right side and it continues to go uphill.After 10 odd Kilometers you will come across the Gette village if you continue straight on that road for another 6 kilometers you will then reach Tashigang.
