The Lahaul and Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh consists of the two formerly separate districts of Lahaul and Spiti. The present administrative centre is Keylong in Lahaul. Befor the two districts were merged, Kardang was the capital of Lahaul, and Dhankar the capital of Spiti.
The 2 valleys are quite different in character. Spiti is more barren and difficult to cross, with an average elevation of 4,270m. If it enclosed between lofty ranges, with the Spiti river rushing out of a gorge in the southeast to meet the Sutlej River.
The harsh conditions of Lahaul permit only scattered tufts of hardy grasses and shrubs to grow, even below 4km. Glacier lines are usually found at 5km. Due to certain climate changes, nowadays people are being able to grow some vegetables in Lahaul valley – cabbage, patato, green peas, radish, tamato, carrot and all types of leafy vegetables.
