The snow-clad mountains around Spiti Valley provide an ideal opportunity for trying out one's rock-climbing skills. The reward after all the strenuous climbing is the unbelievably beautiful view of the wonders of nature – high peaks, deep valleys and a pretty stream meandering through lush foliage. Spiti Valley offers two types of treks - Low Altitude Trekking, which is below the snow line, and High Altitude Trekking, wherein one can cross high passes, snowfields and tough terrain. The most popular is the Chandratal lake trek that lets you explore the beautiful moon lake. You can also hike to Parang La, which is a nine-day trek to a height of over 18,000 ft above sea level. Beginning in Kaza, it passes through Kibber, one of the highest villages in the world. For a more challenging trek, you can opt for the Kanamo Peak trek, that takes you to a height of almost 20,000 ft! Passing through the huge and beautiful Ki Monastery, where you can admire wall paintings, is one of the best ways to explore the valley. July to October is the right time for a trekking expedition to the valley.
