Our Story


“Working with Spiti Holiday Adventure, in Spiti Valley, has helped me peel away the non functional layers built over years, and has let me connect to my true self.” - Sandhya Subramanyan / 2017

Ever since its inception in 1989, Spiti Holiday Adventure, the most experienced local travel company in Spiti Valley, has been operating in what was traditionally a B2B (business to business) market. All this changed, when we decided to open up the market and connect directly with travellers from all across the world by offering the most authentic local travel experience in the valley, at the best local prices minus any middleman commissions. Despite the 30 years of experience, our mindset is that of a startup - always trying to push boundaries to build a beautiful product. Working here, and being a part of the growing process can be exciting and equally frustrating. Here, the responsibilities are high, lines between work positions are often grey, everyone seems to be doing everything. But most importantly, everyone works towards building something they love.

What we do


At Spiti Holiday Adventure, we are a small group of nomads with an unending thirst to explore and build a more authentic local travel experience. Based in Kaza (district capital of Spiti) and Mcleodganj, (yes, we have offices with awesome views), we primarily promotes tours and treks in Spiti Valley. So just another glorified travel agent? Yes and no. Spiti Holiday Adventure, unlike travel ventures, is not a middlemen between travellers and travel suppliers.

Our objective is to operate at the ground level in Spiti Valley, where we promote, explore and document our trails, build our own hotels, train our own local staff and so on. So when you travel with Spiti Holiday Adventure, you visit the stunning Spiti Valley, get a taste of the local travel experience and all this – at local prices.

Work Culture


We believe in product first, sales later. If you are working with us, you’ll probably be wearing multiple hats, juggling various responsibilities and have sketchy work timings. We understand that most people prefer to be given a fixed work timing and a responsibility, but then – we are not most people and if you’ve continued to read this far, you’re probably not like most people either.

Apart from the love for building an exciting product, the team is bound by the love to travel – so there would be a time when you would be typing away to glory behind your computer screen on one day, and the next day, you would be navigating the harsh roads of Spiti Valley.

Growth


We believe in smaller teams that are committed and dedicated to our cause. This means that if you do something magical, it gets noticed and appreciated. One of our team members came from Mumbai for a two week project to videograph a certain folk dance in Spiti Valley. He loved the place and our work so much, that he decided to stay back and work on our logistics. Next year, along with continuing to document the valley for us, he took over our operations at our office in Kaza.

So when you work with us, you work with no maps, borders or coordinates. You are free to explore your own line of work if you think it would add value to the organization and would help us build our vision. If you’re keen on doing innovative work, travelling, and solving problems and creating opportunities, we welcome you to join us on our journey.
