Secret Spiti Sojourn – Architectural & Cultural Tour to Spiti Valley
April 30 @ 10:00 am - May 9 @ 3:30 pmRs39500
The diversity of traditional architectural styles across the globe are a reflection of human creativity & resourcefulness. Architecture is an expression of culture. Regions with intact traditional architecture often sustain strong ties with other aspects of their unique cultural heritage. Spiti Valley & Kinnaur are two such regions. Join us for a Secret Spiti Sojourn & we will take you on a journey through time.
We will visit a Kath Kuni Temple imbued with a blend of Hinduism & Buddhism, visit a rammed earth buddhist monastery over 1000 years old, stay in a Tibetan style earthen home & explore an abandoned castle, a shepherds village lost in time & an ornate carved temple befitting of a Raja tucked away in the humblest of homes. Our tour is suited to anyone with a desire to explore this stunning region beyond the main tourist icons.
We’ll reveal to you a hidden valley, once a gateway to Spiti across the mountain range, dotted with Chilgoza pines & castles & part of an old trade route. Where the inhabitants speak four different languages & their religion is a syncretic blend of Buddhism & Hinduism.
