Day 1: Shimla – Sarahan – Reckong Peo
We start our road trip from Shimla, after breakfast to reach Kinnaur. Pick up can be arranged from Chandigarh as long as it is early in the morning. We expect to reach Reckong Peo by dusk if we are met by favorable roads and less traffic. On arrival we recommend a long walk into the nearby village and exploring the surroundings.

Day 2: Reckong Peo – Nako – Tabo
In Reckong Peo, foreign nationals need to get a permit, which takes few minutes of our time. We now stop at Nako #village and have lunch. Post lunch we enjoy trekking to the village to drink in the sights and rest a while. From here we drive back to Tabo, where we again enjoy some sight seeing before we retire.

Day 3: Tabo – Dhankar
We spend daybreak visiting the legendary and holy Tabo monastery. We also have the opportunity to feel the serenity and peace of the monks by visiting the wonderful caves where the monks meditate. An early lunch and we resume our trip to Dhankar, the capital of ancient Spiti. Here we see the ruins of the Dhankar fort. Time permitting, we may also view the famous “ Three cornered Buddha statue “ in Lalung.

Day 4: Dhankar – Ki – Kibber
Dawn breaks and we are surrounded with rare birds around the Dhankar #lake. You may be able to click a few pictures of the exotic wildlife there. From there, we go to Kibber, passing Ki village as we witness the magnificent Ki monastery atop a hill. A drive to the largest village in the region- Kibber and again we have the rare opportunity to see wild #birds and Spitian #animals.

Day 5: Kibber – Kaza
We take a drive to Kaza post breakfast. Kaza is the largest town of the district . Here we spend our time dwelling in the simple sights of the urbanized town. A look at the valley and you will see a stupendous view of the shimmer of the Spiti #river beside the #mountain. We follow the route to Shilla #valley, which is on high altitude and where you will find locals grazing their herds of livestock. A chance awaits to volunteer to help them .

Day 6: Kaza – Kalpa
We now head to the amazing apple #orchards of Kalpa village from Kaza. A wonderful array of colorful and green ambience surrounds you as you enjoy your picnic there. Enjoy some volunteer work and help the villagers with their daily tasks. And as you retire for the day, you will be rewarded with a typical Spitian dinner.

Day 7: Kalpa – Sarahan – Shimla
And here comes the end to a fascinating tour as we drive back to Shimla. We pass Sarhan on the way, where we can enjoy momos and say good bye to the breath taking view as we reach Shimla in the evening.
