Winter, which embraces Spiti Valley in the first week of november, and stays on until the fourth week of March, is a cold, harsh and tough time in the valley. While it may not be the easiest time to travel through Spiti Valley valley, it certainly is the most rewarding time to come visit.

Everything – every house, hamlet, road and village – dons a cloak of white. The cottony snow is constant - stretching on for as far as the eye can see. The horizon is a myth, for you can never tell where land ends and the skies begin.

As winter sets in, Spiti Valley assumes a timeless nature – like an enchanting postcard waiting for you to dive right in. With temperatures going below -20 degrees centigrade, the Spiti river has more or less frozen up. A few defiant streams tirelessly cut through the ice, giving a surreal glazed feel to the basin.

During these months, the famous Manali – Rohtang Pass – Kunzum La – Kaza road closes due to heavy snowfall. Hence, the only way of reaching Spiti Valley is through the Hindustan – Tibet Highway (Shimla – Kalpa – Kaza). You will be using this road both ways – to enter and exit Spiti Valley.

This comfortable and comfortably curated seven-day Spiti Valley Winter Expedition is designed for travellers for an authentic Spiti Valley tour through the winter months. Shared by a small group of travellers, this Spiti Valley Winter Expedition includes travelling in comfortable and safe Force Traveler to some of the most popular villages of Spiti Valley including Asia’s highest villages – Komik and Kibber. Marvel at the wondrous structures of the Ki Monastery and Tabo Monastery shrouded in snow.

NOTE:

Spiti Winter Expedition FAQs:


Q: What will be the expected temperature and weather?
A : Day temperature will hover around -5 to -15 degree Celsius, while night temperature can go down to -20 and at some places to -30 degree.

Q: Roads remains open in winter?
A: Yes, most of the roads inside Spiti region remains open, there could be a blockage due to snow fall, but gets cleared in a day or so.

Q: What is AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness)?
A: AMS is result of sudden exposure to reduced air pressure and lower oxygen level at high altitude. General symptoms are Headache, Fatigue, Nausea, and Loss of appetite, sleeplessness, heavy breathing. Descending down and inhaling oxygen can cure it faster. That is why we recommend to spend at least two days in Leh, so that you get some time to acclimatize.

Q: What are the precautions for photography gears?
A: You don’t need to worry much about the professional gears much, they are built to sustain such extreme weathers. For basic gears, just keep that battery at warm places like inner pocket and avoid sudden transition from cold to warm places. Battery tend to drain faster in colder conditions.

Q: I had no time to prepare, can I buy warm cloths in Kaza?
A: No, we suggest you buy it at home location and try it out couple of times.

Q: Is there some trekking involved in this?
A: No

Q: I have medical history related to breathing, blood pressure or anything significant, Can I travel at such height and low temperature?
A: Please consult your doctor for the same.

Q: What about the phone connectivity.
A: Only BSNL works with no guarantee of tower working.

Me and my sons 19 and 17 years, were desperate to do a cycling tour in India after our Nepal tour with Explore Himalaya.I was nervous doing this kind of trip in India. However, our guide Akshay had planned out the safest tour and he was very safety conscious. It was an enjoyable 8-day trip and though there were some nerve-wracking road rides, most of the trip was awesome with few to no traffic. Would definitely recommend Explore Himalaya to other travelers.

It was more beautiful than I had imagined it. Valley of flowers is simply a delight to the senses. I came to know about this trek through my friend circle. We got in touch with explorehimalaya.org and they arranged the whole trek for us in a jiffy. Uttrakhand is a home to most beautiful mountain peaks and I'm glad I have discovered the cream of it all. Kudos to the team and the support staff.
