Trip To Spiti - DVD
|The Spiti Valley is a highland desert valley in the Himalayas near the border of Tibet. It is an isolated but very beautiful place. The people that live there are Spitians. They are similar but different to Tibetans. In 2006 I organised a group tour to Spiti. This video which I filmed follows our journey. You can see excerpts of the video on this website. The full video can be purchased and would be of great value to teachers or anyone interested in The Himalayas.
