Isn't it amazing to know some #historical#stories of #SpitiValley like the following one??? #Spiti , originally pronounced '#Piti ' (the middle land), was historically part of Western Tibet (Nariss Korssum). In the 11th century AD Nimagon, the king of Nariss Korssum divided his kingdom amongst his 3 sons of which #Spiti and #Zanskar together formed a separate kingdom. Later, Ladakh took over the suzerainty of Spiti and Zanskar, and the area was governed by the Nono (younger brother of the King of Ladakh).
It was only after the invasion of Ladakh by Zorawar Singh that Spiti became part of Kullu. It remained an independent principality for many years, under the judicial and administrative rule of the Nonos (adopted as the title for the king of Spiti) during the British Raj.

Christmas is by far my favorite holiday! We've never been on vacation during Christmas except with family. Do you travel over holidays like this? If so, do you still do the "normal" Christmas traditions you'd do at home? Fill me in! I've always been to nervous I guess to go anywhere else but with family when it comes to holidays...
