The ancient civilization of Spiti has survived for thousands of years and has preserved its culture against the onslaught of modernity. Spiti valley is insanely beautiful and still unexplored region of Himalayas, located in the north most part of Himachal. Separated from fertile Lahaul by the mighty Kunzum Pass, this trans Himalayan region is another world within India. Its a heaven for motorist as it carry some of the most challenging roads of the world.
Relatively large but still the remote village of Kibber is a magnificent sight. Located at 19 km from Kaza and at a towering height of 4270m, it used to be the highest motorable village in the world till 2014. Now the title is carried by neighboring village Komik (4587m). Its a good base for local hikes and the trail head for the demanding 8- 10-day trek over the 5578m Parang La to Tso Moriri lake in Ladakh. Like most of Spitian villages it has a monastery but in addition it has a Wildlife Sanctuary also of its own.
