Amongst the few unexplored areas the world over there isn’t one as enchanting and inspiring as Spiti, often known as Little Tibet. Tucked away in the interiors of the Trans-Himalayan belt of Himachal Pradesh, this high altitude cold desert region has only recently been opened to the outside world. Situated at an altitude well over 3000 mts above mean sea level, this valley is exposed to temperature variations of -28 degree centigrade to +28 degree centigrade and remains cut off for most of the year by the high mountains that encircle it. Due to its relative isolation, various unique and rare aspects of the Buddhist culture (Tibetan Buddhism) are well preserved in this valley. Millions of years ago, Spiti however lay submerged under the Tethys Sea. Remnants of its geological past are evident in the unique landscape and the diverse fossils found in the valley. Spiti is also a storehouse of various rare and endangered species of flora and fauna.
