This winter, shed all your fears and set out for the most amazing road trip of your life! Well, yeah – no kidding, but the Winter Spiti Roadtrip is surely not a joke! You gotta have some courage to put on your warmest clothes and hit the trails that are covered in thick snow, spend days in quaint valleys, stay disconnected from the rest of the world and listen to your own heartbeats (at times!). If all of it is already giving you goosebumps, then Plan The Unplanned, in association with Wild Himalayan Glamping Camp, is all set to take you for the trip of your life! The winter adds to Spiti an added dose of mysticism. The pristine white landscape forms a mantle of purity that leaves you with a blank canvas and challenges you to absorb what lies beneath.

We call out all nature, adventure, travel and photography enthusiasts to experience the unexplored and hidden Spiti culture this winter. Drive through the rolling snow-covered Spiti with us and witness the beauty and the struggle to survive it!
