Spiti, lying in the rain shadow area of rugged mountain ranges of Zaskar, is a high altitude cold desert dotted with numerous monasteries. The Spiti valley is locked between the Zaskar and the Great Himalayan ranges – the tallest ranges of Himachal. The deep gorges carved out by the snow–fed streams add charm to Spiti’s stark splendour.
