Lahaul & Spiti culture, tourism and tourist attractions:
Lahaul and Spiti areas are two remote Himalayan Valleys of Himachal Pradesh, lying on the Indo-Tibet border. Strange, exciting, primitive, these valleys are unsurpassed in mountain scape, in the rugged beauty of their rocky escapements and the splendor of their snow covered peaks.
Lahaul is marked by a central mass of uniformly high mountains and massive glaciers. The two rivers, Chandra and Bhaga which rise on either side of the Baralacha La, flow through the narrow Chandra and Bhaga valleys. Lahaul is a land of fascinating Buddhist art and culture.
The monasteries of Lahaul & Spiti are rich repositories of ancient murals, thankas, wood carving and golden images of Padmasambhava. The valley lies at a height of 2745 metres above from the sea level.
Summer in this valley is cool and pleasant with green grass and alpine flowers. There are little monsoon in both these valleys and this enables climbers & trekkers to enjoy a long and unbroken season in perpetual sunshine to explore the wilderness and grandeur of the inner Himalaya.
This unique feature makes Lahaul-Spiti as an ideal destination for tourists and trekkers in the month of July, August and September. Keylong is 115 kms from Manali and is the District Headquarters of Lahul-Spiti District.
Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh:
Spiti is the sub division of Lahaul & Spiti district with its hqrs. at Kaza. It is called “Little Tibet” because it has almost the same terrain, vegetation & climate.
Spiti also means “Middle Country”. It lies between Tibet, Ladakh, Kinnaur, Lahaul & Kullu. From Shimla via Kinnaur there is a motorable road which remains open up to Kaza for 8 to 9 months.
About 10 kms. ahead of Pooh, satluj enters India near Shipki la & Spiti river joins it at Khab village. The road then goes to Sumdo via Hangrang valley. From Sumdo, Spiti valley starts.
The Spiti river flows fast through deep gorges at some places. The valley is not wide but there are villages and some fields where people grow barley, buckwheat, peas & vegetables.
It has an area of 4800 sq. kms. Some inhabitants have adopted Buddhism as there faith and Bhoti is the spoken language.
The people are simple and honest. The main Spiti valley is split into eastern and western valleys. They are connected with Ladakh & Tibet on eastern side & Kinnaur and Kullu on western side through high passes.
