    Your Spiti road trip begins from the lush, green grasslands of Chandigarh but as each day passes, you'll travel towards Kaza, the capital city and the largest city of the Spiti region, where stark, grey mountains dominate the horizon.

    • Spend a day at Kaza, the capital city of the Spiti Valley.
    • Explore Spiti on a short 8-day road trip.
