Getting to Spiti by air is not an easy task as the nearest airport to the Spiti Valley is at Kullu, some 260 kilometers away. So if you travel to Spiti by plane, you still have a lot to cover. It takes about 7-8 hours to get to Spiti from Kullu Airport. Another disadvantage of flying to Spiti is that you may not find direct flights to Kullu Airport from your hometown as it is a domestic airport.
