"As an expat on posting to India both myself and my wife Jan, wanted to experience a holiday with a difference which in not in the usual tourist brochures. We chose to go with Spiti Ecosphere, who provided an English speaking local Spiti Valley guide. We experienced in our ten day adventure the most wonderful insight to this part of the world, which included some of the most spectacular scenery, on our way to high altitude villages, where we were treated as guests of honour whist the village women performed local traditional dancing. Our well informed guide took us to Budist temples and gompas, to see first hand, paintings that dated back to one thousand years, and to meet monks who were able to describe their true significance. Included in the trip were home stays where we were able to enjoy the generous and warm hospitality of the Spiti Valley people and the Chance to ride a yak with our guide some 15kms to the next village amongst the breathtaking vistas of the Spiti Valley. The Spiti Valley people who have not been over-exposed to western tourist, are warm friendly and are some of the most hardworking genuine people we have ever met. It has been a truly uplifting experience, and it was obvious that Spiti Ecosphere had done a lot of research to ensure that our adventure was one we will remember for many years to come."

"We came upon Spiti tourism, Ishita and Sunil by accident. and I am so jolly glad that we did. The whole trip was a wonderful experience, a deep plunge into a world which is both mystical and adventourous. There is no doubt that they look after you well, but there is no annoying nannying. The trips are tailormade and you get to chose how easy or how difficult is shall be. The guides are one of the best part of the trip and we still miss Tsering, absolutely a marvellous chap. The moment we can take three weeks off, I am back to Spiti."
