That’s about to change as you embark on this unforgettable ten-day Spiti Valley and Kinnaur Valley Tour – no plan and no itinerary – just a group of like-minded photo-explorers, finding one story after another, while traversing into the unknown pockets of the far-flung Himalayan valleys of Spiti and Kinnaur.
This tour is hosted by Abhinav Chandel (@AbhiandNow), one of India’s leading Instagrammers. This former city boy now lives in the mountains and chronicles his life through his stunning photographs and poetry. He describes himself as being “constantly on the move; trying to uncover and collect stories from corners of the world”.
The last Photo Exploration Tour happened in April 2017, where Abhinav and Spiti Holiday Adventure collaborated on a 10-day Photo-Exploration Tour to Spiti Valley with fourteen photo explorers.
If you hate being a tourist and want to explore (truly explore) Spiti Valley, this tour is tailored for you. No fixed plan. No itinerary. Just the explorers with their cameras and an insatiable hunger to know Spiti Valley - lead to the most enchanted lands with spellbinding views, and a never before experience in the mountains.
You may want to spend time interacting with the locals or find a site which may be tempting to camp on, and just pitch a tent there. Whatever it is that the group feels like doing -- that’s what you’ll end up doing.
It’s highly likely that on this nine-day holiday to Spiti Valley, you'd spend time in a monastery and learn about Buddhism through conversations with monks or spend a day with the local farmers in their farm. You could trek from one village to the other or spend a day driving through the valley. Also, if herbs and ancient science fascinates you, you could meet and interact with the Amchi (a local medical practitioner) and learn about the ancient form of Spitian medication or spend the day interacting with the postmaster from the highest post office in the world at Hikkim; Volunteer for a day in an old age home or spend a day in a village school. The possibilities are limitless. The maps are with no horizon.
Forget the plans, burn the maps, and come to Spiti Valley with us. Give yourself a chance to experience the Himalayas like an explorer, and watch these mountains change you as a person.

Do yourself a big favour and visit Spiti Valley using this company. The whole team is extremely professional and just a lovely bunch! We did 7-day jeep ride which provided a great itinerary to see a lot of what this amazing place has to offer. Spiti Valley is a once in a lifetime experience and totally worth the effort to go!
Thank you for an amazing "Spiti" experience. This was one of the well arranged and managed travel experience that I have been part of. Still missing the hospitality of all the people who hosted us at all places be it Khansar at kaza, Home-stay at Kibber or Mountain Trail Hotel at Manali. Once again a thank you very much and of course hope to travel with you guys once again. As JRR Tolkien says... Home is behind, The world ahead; And there are many paths to tread…
