Shopping In Kaza: Kaza Market In Spiti

The valley of Spiti is cut off from the mainland for more than 6 months and is only accessible during the summer months between May and September. Tucked in between Tibet and India, Spiti Valley bears a stark similarity to Tibet in its way of life, food habits and culture. It is also to a great extent influenced by Hinduism. Hence we can say that Spiti Valley is a melting pot of cultures and has paved a unique Tibetan Hinduism which is an assimilation of both Tibet and India, just like its name Spiti, or Piti, which means ‘The middle land’.
