History

Ancient history and settlement.

Presumably, Spiti was under the control of local rulers (Nonos) for centuries. Later in the 10th century, Spiti was under the rule of the King of Ladakh’s son. After the Ladakh Tibet war in the year 1681-1683, Spiti got its freedom. In 1941, Spiti, with Lahaul, was formed into a separate sub-tehsil of Kullu sub-division with Keylong as the headquater. Later on, after the formation of Lahaul & Spiti into a district, in 1960, Spiti was formed into a sub-division Kaza as headquater.

Geography

Ancient history and settlement.

It is located to the south of Ladakh and this is the reason why it is also known as LhoYul, meaning “Southern Country”. The beautiful valley of Kullu to its south, it is situated across the Rohtang Pass (3195Mtrs), the Bara Bangahal (Kangra) and the Asakh pass (5051Mtrs). The western boundaries of this place contact the Pangi and Churah areas of Distt. Chamba. Beautiful Valleys of Zanskar and Ladakh across Shingola (5090 Mtrs) and Baralacha La (5450 Mtrs) are situated to its north. The best time to visit this place is from mid-May to mid-October i.e; in summers since the district is snowbound and from October-May due to closure of the Rohtang Pass, Lahaul Valley remains isolated from the rest of the world. However, Spiti is an all-weather place.
