Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India -- as remote as it can possibly get, as it lies in the bosom of the Himalayan Mountain range -- beckons you to explore its amazing beauty. With the towering Kunzum La on one side separating it from fertile Lahaul, this little piece of Tibet marooned in India is a tourist's dream come true. Old monasteries perched on crags, lush green barley fields, scattered homes like jewels strewn over green velvet, winding roads that give you breathtaking views along the way, and clear rivers a world apart from present-day pollution -- this is what Spiti is all about.

If you love adventure, you should definitely go on one of Asia's greatest road trips, the Spiti-Kinnaur, and traverse some of the country's most challenging roads along with other bikers, motorcyclists, and four-wheelers as prayer flags flutter distantly in the wind. If you'd prefer a more sober form of adventure, go on a jeep safari or plan to go trekking along the region's popular trails and stare in awe at the enchanting landscape and natural beauty as it was meant to be from the beginning of time. Spiti is home to the second longest glacier in the world, the Bara-Sigri glacier, and a trip to the Kunzum Pass will make the view much more interesting. This pass is closed during winter, though, when it is snowbound and cut off from the rest of the country.
