A winter bike trip to Spiti can be an adventurous and challenging experience. Spiti is a cold desert region in the Indian Himalayas and is known for its remote and rugged terrain. Winter months bring harsh weather conditions with temperatures dropping well below freezing and heavy snowfall.

A winter Spiti Valley trip can be difficult, but it is also extremely rewarding. You will be able to appreciate the beauty of the Himalayas in a unique and peaceful setting away from the city’s hustle bustle. It is an excellent chance to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with nature and yourself.
