Spiti Valley is known as Trekking mecca and a virgin paradise of Himachal Pradesh which has an altitude of 12,500 feet above sea level. It gets around 250 days of sunshine in the year, making it one of the coldest places in the country. The summer months are the only time Spiti is directly accessible via motorway as the thick himalayan snow cut Spiti off from the rest of the country for around 6 months a year. The term Spiti means 'The Middle Land'. As Spiti Valley separates India from Tibet the name is appropriate for it. 

Chandratal Lake of Spiti Lake is often referred to as one of the most beautiful lakes located at an altitude of about 4300 m in the mighty Himalayas. The name "Chandra Taal" which means Lake of the Moon comes from its crescent shape.
The colour of water of this holy lake keeps changing from reddish to orange to blue to emerald green as the day ends. 

The Key Monastery also known as Kye Monastery is a famous Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the Lahaul and Spiti District of India which is located at an altitude of 4,166 metres above the sea level. The monastery is very close to the Spiti River in the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh in India.
