Braving Spiti with Wonderful world

23 –2 July, 2018 | 10 Days/9 Nights

INFO

Our maiden road trip was to Spiti Valley, and we would absolutely love going back. Spiti is tucked away in a far corner of Himachal Pradesh on the wrong side of the great Himalayas and is often called ‘Little Tibet’ or ‘Mini Ladakh’.
Certainly, the similarities are aplenty: the rain-starved landscape with scattered patches of bright green poplar and young barley for relief, the mud gompas and fluttering prayer flags, the snow-crowned mountains and the fast moving rivers, the breath-sapping altitudes, the lone metalled highway and the vast blue skyway. All are very Ladakh-like you will say, but what’s so unique about Spiti?

The big difference is, Spiti is not a gigantic military base. Thus, it makes for a far more relaxed and pleasant holiday with thinner crowds.
No artillery detachment round the corner to startle you or endless convoys to pull aside and best of all, no multiple permits to obtain or checkposts to present them.

Spiti is going where you want to and seeing what you need to. The unimaginable beauty of emptiness, at your own pace and time. So, when you finally lose that cell phone signal, you will be transported to another world.
Our journey begins from Chandigarh and will end at Chandigarh 10 days later.
Our team will include experienced and known drivers.
The terrain to get to Spiti is harsh and desolate, but the final destination makes it worth.

We, at Wonderful World, help like-minded women see the world in ways they can never dream of with husbands, kids, and parents in tow.
We keep our group sizes small so that you can make new friends, and yet find your own space. So, when you get to our serene destinations, the dictates, dynamics, and timetables of a large group don’t dent your enjoyment.
