Best Time to Visit

Late May to late September.

Spiti is literally off bounds from October to May. Only from late May to late September is considered the best time to visit Spiti. As days warm up, the accumulated snow melts and paves way for the roads to clear up leading to the valley. This happens even on the Shimla-Kinnaur route.
Hotels just start to come out of hibernation and things starts to arrive in Spiti Valley on frequent basis. If you are interested in watching snow studded peaks, want to play in snow then this is the ideal time to be in Spiti Valley.
