Kinnaur-Spiti-Lahaul and Ladakh India

With this safari, you pass through three former Kingdoms. They are KINNAUR, SPITI, LAHAUL, and even further to LADAKH India. Now, the Spiti areas belong to India. And the Indian government strictly declared this area prohibited for tourists until 1995. However, these areas are one of the most scenics but very less frequented by tourists. The Satluj River rises from the southern slopes of the Kailash (the Holly Mountain in Asia) and flows into the Kinnaur valley. As well as it is a fascinating area for Buddhist art and monasteries. The area is also rich repositories of ancient murals, thankas, woodcarvings, and golden images of the Padmasambhava.

Ladakh is one of the Coldest deserts in the World. Ladakh, the roof of the world open to tourists only in the last decade. This place is a bridge between the earth and the sky that lies at an awesome altitude, and the highland! Ladakh is a region in India which totally isolated from the modern world. An authentic land is faithful to ancestral customs where intense spiritual characterized the life. Even an Indian traveler will probably find no similarities in the land and people between the ones he leaves behind and those he encounters in Ladakh. Rich traditions of Mahayana Buddhism still flourish in the purest form in this region, which is often referred to as Little Tibet.
