Trek & Volunteer along the Homestay Trail
Are you a backpacker at heart? Not just because its budget but because that's when you get the REAL feel of a place. Well, we resonate with you, as at the core of our heart, we at Ecosphere have always been backpackers. And as a backpacker we know you are constantly on the look out for how you can make your travels memorable and meaningful.
Backpacking along the Homestay Trail in Spiti can be done independently and we have backpackers dropping in everyday for detailed information, which we provide for free. However, what if you could backpack along some of Asiaís highest villages, exploring Spitian life as an insider, engaging in activities that will impact the lives of these hardy mountain folk meaningfully? What, if your travels could be memorable and meaningful not just for you but for the place and people you visit? Want to add a PURPOSE to your backpacking in Spiti?
The homestay trail is set along the highlands of this magnificent valley and traverses along Spitiís (and Asiaís) highest settlements. Each village along this trail is adorned by unique and ancient Buddhist monasteries and temples dating back to over a 1000 years and encased in legend and folklore. The homestay accommodation along the trail further enriches the experience by giving one an authentic understanding of the life and culture in a Spitian home. Your hosts are the local people of Spiti, accommodating you in their homes to enhance your sojourn in Spiti.
