The Spiti Valley is a high-altitude Himalayan valley located in the northeastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The word "Spiti" means "The Middle Land", i.e. the land between Tibet and India.
The Spiti Valley is one of India's most isolated and least populated regions. It is also one of the most scenic and beautiful places in the country. The valley is home to some of the world's highest mountain peaks, including the Komic Flat Top (6,890 m), the Saser Massif (7,672 m) and the Kunzum Pass (4,590 m).
The Spiti Valley is also home to the world's oldest continuously inhabited monastery, the Tabo Monastery, which was founded in 996 CE. The Spiti Valley is accessible from the town of Leh in the neighbouring Ladakh region. The best time to travel to the Spiti Valley is between June and September.
Ladakh is a mountainous region in northern India, located between Tibet and the Karakoram Range. Its capital city is Leh. The most remote and inaccessible region of Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh was a crossroads of ancient civilizations. Through the centuries, a unique Buddhist culture developed in Ladakh.
LADAKH bike trip is a trip to India's Leh and Ladakh regions. The trip is typically done on a motorbike, although some people do it on bicycles. The trip can be done in several ways, but the most popular way is to start from Delhi and ride to Leh, then Ladakh. The Leh Ladakh and Spiti Valley trips can also be done in the reverse direction.
