FORBIDDEN HIMALAYAS

Glorious journey taking you to the mystique and mystery of the remote Spiti region, once a part of the kingdom of Nariss Korssum (Western Tibet) on the Indian side of Tibetan plateau, on an odyssey of discovery and delight on the old Hindustan Tibet Road once a part of the legendary ancient Silk Route. The mystical stunning valley of Spiti – home to some of the world’s oldest Buddhist monasteries and temples, endangered wildlife and panoramic vistas, has opened its doors to leisure travellers in the remote cold desert lands of its Trans-Himalayan environs of Himachal Pradesh, standing cheek by jowl with the Tibetan Plateau. Isolated from the rest of the country for half the year by the snowbound passes of the mountains encircling it, its rarefied environs offer the intrepid visitor a stunning bouquet of gorgeous landscapes, warm hospitality and cultural highs that leave you with a dazzling array of holiday memories. The Old Hindustan Tibet road was once a part of the legendary Silk Route of ancient times and the place for high adventure, profitable commerce and cultural exchange.
