About Spiti River

Forming the lifeline of Lahaul-Spiti district in the state of Himachal Pradesh, the Spiti River is a scenic treat for the eyes. It has its origin in Kunzum Range of Himalayas from where it is fed by many popular Himalayan streams like the Pin River. The river’s waters are fed from the melting of glaciers since there are no rains in this part of Himalayas which are apparently like a desert area.

The Spiti river is integral for most of the human habitation near the river forming places like Tabo, Dhankar, Kaza and Rangrik which have now been existing for more than 1000 years. One of the most eye-catching stretches of the river is between Kaza and Rangrik which can be seen from the Key Monastery.

The river freezes during the winter season but some hotels in Spiti Valley are known to organize mud baths around the river if the weather is permissible.
