"A Offbeat Serene Village in Lahaul Valley"

Jispa Tourism

Jispa is a village on the banks of the Bhaga River in the Lahaul and Spiti District, and is located at a distance of 20 km from Keylong and about 92.3 km from Manali. Even though Jispa is often considered as a pitstop on the Manali - Leh route, the scenic beauty of the place, surrounded by snow-capped Himalayan mountains, glacial lakes and Buddhist stupas makes Jispa an ideal place for camping and trekking.

Jispa is the ideal offbeat mountain destination with just about 80 households, and a lesser crowd, where you can appreciate the life and livelihood of the Lahauli people and the stunning geography at peace. There are a few homestays and hotels in Jispa, but especially during summer months, camping out in the many picturesque camping grounds is the most popular choice and the best way to experience Jispa. Jispa is accessible throughout the year after the Atal Tunnel opened.
