    Tour Program

    Leave Delhi after an early breakfast. Spend the night in Narkanda.
    After breakfast leave for Sangla. Just across the camp, visit Batseri village after lunch, the local Devta temple is a must see. Enjoy the warmth of the bonfire by the riverside in the evening. Night stay in Sangla.
    20kms from the camp. This is the last village on the old Indo-Tibetan trade route. Lunch along the glacier fed mountain stream.
    Walk up to the Sangla meadows to see the Kinner Kailash range in all its majesty or take a walk to the glacier point. Also available river crossing, rappelling or angling for trout. Bonfire in the evening.
    After breakfast, leave for Kalpa famous for its apple and chilgoza plantations. Kalpa offers the best panoramic view of the 6,000m high Kinner-Kailash range. Night stay in Kalpa.
    After an early breakfast, we depart for Kaza, leaving behind verdant, forest clad mountains as we go over the tree line towards the Spiti region. En route you may take a short detour to visit the picturesque Nako Lake. The terrain will leave you breathless and speechless.
    Rock-hard Desert Mountains, torrential rivers and icy cold winds account for the sparsely populated villages. Reach Kaza, check into the hotel and spend rest of the day at leisure.
    After an early breakfast, drive down to Tabo and visit Tabo Gompa, reputed to be the oldest (an inscription on a wall here indicates, it was founded in AD 996) continuously functioning Buddhist monastery in India and the Himalayas, with its original decoration and iconographic program intact. We then move on to see Dhankar monastery. Dhankar, the traditional capital of Spiti, sits pretty on a hilltop. The fort here overlooks the Spiti valley and Today, more than 160 lamas reside here.
    A statue of Dhyan Budha where four complete figures of Buddha sit back to back is the main attraction of this more than seven-century old monastery.
    Return back to retreat for lunch. Post lunch visit Ki monastery and Kibber village. Ki Gompa is a Gelugpa sect monastery. Its hilltop position points to a post-thirteenth century construction. The three storied structure consists largely of storage rooms at the bottom level, while the middle floor houses the Dukhang- the assembly hall- and the uppermost floor has another temple and the head Lama's quarters, on one side of an open terrace. The greatest wealth of Ki Gompa lies in its collection of 'Thangkas' salvaged with difficulty from the devastating raids of the Dogars and the Sikhs in the 19th century.
    From here a scenic drive takes you into the pasture country of Kibber.
    The pastures are spread over hundreds of square kilometers. Kibber is small village and is the take off point for the popular trek to Tso Moriri in Ladakh. Further up six kilometers from Kibber, we drive up to a still smaller village of Gete. Consisting of just six houses, it boasts of being the highest village in Asia connected by road.
    Drive to Manali via 4,551M high Kunzum Pass and the 3,978m high Rohtang Pass. Check into Hotel for overnight stay.
    Day of leisure and local sightseeing.
    After an early breakfast, drive to Delhi via Chandigarh.
