Spiti Valley

Spiti Valley is Ladakh's lesser known neighbor and is practically a cold mountain desert which invites travellers who dare to drift away from the usual leisure trips. Spiti Valley boasts of picturesque landscapes and remotely tucked away villages in the mighty, barren midlands of Himalayas. It is in Spiti Valley that one can hike along Snow Leopard and Himalayan Wolf habitats and pay a visit to 1000 year old monastery. Spiti Valley offers a fascinating culture and cuisine which stands apart from the rest of the country.

Spiti Valley has the harshest of the weather but kindest of the people! Its amazing to see this unique combination - which only Spiti Valley has to offer. Spiti Valley remains cut off from the rest of India for 6 months of the year. Its almost impossible for one to reach Spiti Valley even through the Shimla - Kinnaur pass during other times of the year. Best possible months to visit Spiti Valley are from mid May to September.

In the name Spiti Valley - Spiti literally means ‘middle land’ as it is bordered by Tibet in the east, Ladakh to the north, Kinnaur to the south east and Lahaul and Kullu to the south. Situated at an average height of around 12,500 feet above mean sea level, Spiti lies along the Himalayan river of the same name. Cut off from the tourist map because of its remoteness, Spiti Valley, along with its twin valley of Lahaul, has retained its pristine charm. Another interesting fact about Spiti Valley is that Spiti Valley get Sunshine for only about 250 days a year!

VERY well planned tour.... awesome facility.....accommodation and food service is good.....you guys are doing good job..... I enjoyed lot.....thank you EziiTours.....

EziiTours बरोबर मी गिरनार वारी केली होती...कधीही न विसरता येईल असा सुंदर अनुभव ह्या वारी मधे आला... मी व्यक्तीश: चेतन चे आभार मानतो की त्याने ह्या ठिकाणाचे दर्शन उत्तम रितीने घडवुन आणले.. चेतनच्या पुढील सहलिंना शुभेच्छा..

सौराष्ट्रात काठेवाड प्रांतात जुनागड संस्थानात गिरनार पर्वत स्थित आहे..साधू संतांच्या वास्तव्याने पुनीत झालेल्या या पर्वतावर दत्तगुरूंचा नित्य निवास असतो.दत्तगुरूंच्या कृपाशिर्वादाची अनुभूति घेण्यासाठी गिरनारला इजी टूरसोबत जरूर भेट द्या. जय गिरनारी पार लगा दो नैय्या हमारी

सर्वात प्रथम तुमचे मनापासून आभार की तुमच्यासोबत मला द्वारका-सोमनाथ-गिरनार ही ट्रिप करायला मिळाली. खुप दिवसांपासून गिरनार दर्शन करायचं मनात होतं ते तुमच्यामुळे शक्य झाले. बाकी तुमच्या सर्व्हिसबद्दल सांगायचे तर खूप उत्तम दर्जाची सर्व्हिस मिळाली. एक धार्मिक ट्रिप असून सुद्धा कुठल्याही प्रकारची कमतरता नव्हती. पुण्यापासूनचा एकूण प्रवास, जेवण, हॉटेल या सर्वांची खुप उत्तम सोय तुम्ही केली, कमी पैसे घेऊनसुद्धा यांच्या दर्जात कुठल्याही प्रकारची तडजोड केली नाही. ...

EziiTours provided us with an excellent set of facilities at affordable rates. One can say " A guaranteed dream journey with a divine eperience." Superb!!!
