Lahaul & Spiti Valley
At once stark and forbidding, yet, Lahaul &Spiti has an ethernal beauty. The two twin valleys of Lahaul & Spiti in the north eastern corner of Himachal Pradesh, protected by distance, is a region of nature at its wildest which has lent it much enchantment. This region is best visited & viewed by involving in Trekking and Jeep Safaris.

The word 'Lahaul' is regarded as a derivative of the Tibetan Lho-yul, 'southern country' or of Lhahi-yul 'country of Gods'. Si means 'mani', piti 'place' and Spiti means 'the place of mani'.

From Lahaul, the Himalayas can be seen in their entire mighty splendor. Geologically and archaeologically, Spiti is a living museum. The mountains are devoid of any vegetation and erosion by wind, sun and snow over thousands of years has laid bare the rocks. The rugged and rocky mountain slopes sweep down to the riverbeds giving the landscape a moon-like appearance.

The former 'summer capital' of Patiala, Chail is 43-km from Shimla and dwelling in the midst of a lush green setting. At 2,250m, it has the world's highest cricket pitch in the premises of king George Royal Indian Military College and a polo ground, the old palace now a hotel and angling are the added attractions.

Chail is hiker's paradise. The area is very peaceful away from the hustle and bustle of Shimla. Close by is a National Park, which has limited number of birds and deers.

Running alongside the Kullu valley, the Kangra valley, equally beautiful, combines the charm of a Devonshire coomb with the steep silhouette of the Dolomites soaring up into the sky on either side. There are several tea gardens dedicated to the production of both green and black tea. Sturdily built and handsome, the people of the valley are renowned as hardy and courageous soldiers.

North of Kullu is a beautiful spot, in the midst of pinewood with high mountains towering above it. Also know as the 'Queen of Hill Stations', Manali at an altitude of 1,829 meters and 40 Km from Kullu was twice the choice of Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru, when he chose to relax from the affairs of state and seek inspiration anew. here, he came in 1958 and stayed a mouth then again in 1960 when he could only snatch 10 days of peace and quiet.
