A blend of Spiti's rich cultural heritage and natural splendors, this trail provides a unique insight into the Spitian way of life (their homes, cuisine, agriculture and irrigation practices, livestock grazing mechanisms) balanced with the opportunity to explore the habitats of some of the worlds most rare species of wildlife such as the Snow Leopard, Tibetan Wolf & Blue Sheep. While spotting the former in the summer months is extremely unlikely, spotting the Tibetan Wolf and Blue Sheep is likely. The trail winds itself along alpine pastures. The fossils that dot this trail offer Glimpses of Spiti's geological past. Ancient Buddhist monasteries and temples dating back to more than 1000 years adorn these villages and are a reflection of Spiti's historical and religious links to Tibet.

The traveler could also add a twist of excitement and adventure by traversing part of this trail on yak back.
