To one degree or another, we’re all looking for places that fire our imagination, places that call to us. The places that make it easier to breathe, but at the same time, have the power to leave us breathless.
Day 1 – Shimla to Narkanda- Check-in at our Wild Himalayan Glamping Camp which has one of the most beautiful mountain views. Get yourselves comfortable and get ready to know the unknown.
Day 2 – Kalpa ‘Once Called CHINI’- We will leave for Kalpa after a beautiful sunrise and breakfast. The most beautiful part about this settlement is – how magically the Buddhist and Hindu worshiping complexes were fused together architecturally and in belief. One can see the entire Kinnaur Kailash mountain range in the background of the town. The streets are studded with Kinnauri apples, apricots and kind people.
Day 3 – Tabo- ‘Ajanta of the Himalayas’- Tabo is the most well planned and well maintained town in Spiti valley. Founded in 966AD, Tabo Gompa is famous for wall paintings and statues. It’s often calls the Ajanta of Himalaya. Reason behind is there are same paintings in both places. In terms of area it is the largest monastic complex in Spiti, in old section has nine temples.
Day 4 & 5 – The ultimate Himalayan town- Kaza or Kaja as the locals say, is the headquarters of Spiti Valley in the Lahaul and Spiti district. The city is well developed with almost all infrastructures amidst dry cold deserts as context. Kaza has a lot to offer in terms of culture and belief, besides the shopping arcade, Café’s and eating joints. Best time to explore the real harshness of winters and very less people indeed.
Day 6 – Kaza to Rampur- Located by the banks of river Satluj, Rampur used to be the capital of former princely state of Bushahr in the 18th-century. Since it fell on the ancient trade route to Afghanistan, Ladakh, China and Tibet, Rampur benefited from a wide range of economic and cultural activities. It’s still a bustling town and a melting pot of cultures of the region.
Day 7 – Time to say “bye” to these mountains and leave the memories with you. Drop off to Shimla.
