Geologically and archaeologically, the Spiti Valley is a living museum. The mountains are without vegetation, and erosion by wind, sun and snow over thousands of years has laid bare the rocks. The rugged and rocky mountain slopes sweeping down to the riverbeds give the landscape a moon-like appearance.
Spiti’s attractions include Buddhist monasteries, passes, glaciers, lakes and turbulent rivers. Spiti is a predominantly Buddhist area, and its comparative inaccessibility has helped preserve their culture. Spiti is a fascinating area for Buddhist art and culture. The monasteries are rich repositories of ancient murals, thank has, woodcarvings and golden images of the Padmasambhava. The people are charming, friendly and hospitable with their own traditional dances, ballads, folk tales and legends.
