How To Reach Spiti
Known to be one of the coldest and most serene tourist locations, Spiti comes with an unparalleled charm given its picturesque landscapes. Spiti Valley is situated right amidst the Himalayas at an altitude of 12,500 feet above sea level. The snowfall here is extremely thick due to which Spiti is accessible only for six months. Being located amidst hills and snow, the place is a reflection of paradise and separates India from Tibet. Reaching Spiti is an exciting mini-adventure in itself and the reward is definitely worth it.
Spiti does not have any direct flights. Bhuntar Airport is the nearest airport and is located at a distance of 245 km from the valley. Traffic of flights to this airport is very limited and the biggest nearest airport is Chandigarh, which is 522 km away and sees many more flights from all over India.
You can take a bus that regularly plies from Manali or Shimla and both of these are 20 km away from the valley. Delhi, Chandigarh, Pathankot are the locations from where you can take a trip by road. You can also avail the taxi services from these main locations. The roads are generally open from May to November. However, few might be blocked at certain points due to heavy snowfall, which makes them inaccessible.
There are two nearest train stations including Chandigarh and Joginder Nagar. The connectivity of Joginder Nagar is not very commendable. You can then choose to either take a taxi or a bus to reach the valley.
