A cold, otherworldly land, Located in the Himalayas in northern India, the Spiti Valley is one of the highest inhabited places on Earth. Characterised by barren mountains, treacherous passes and serpentine rivers, the high-altitude, cold desert landscape looks almost otherworldly.
At 4,400m above sea level in northern India’s remote Spiti Valley, the Hikkim post office is a vital connection to the outside world. 'Tsedup's house' is just next to this highest post office in the world. From food to your rooms,
everything at this place speaks of ethnicity of Spiti!
Hikkim is a must visit place if you are traveling to Spiti as you don't want to miss a chance to send postcards to your loved ones from this highest post office.
Hikkim stays close for six months due to heavy snowfall in this area and hence the post office. Postmaster Rinchen Chhering has been running the operations since its inception in 1983.

'Tsedup's house' provides a comfortable stay in otherwise this very remote area. This house has 3 rooms and the best thing is that you can also sleep under the stars (on the terrace). Your dining area is the quintessential area of any house in Spiti.
With Hikkim being a no network zone, you can spend some valuable time with yourself and the ones you are traveling with.
This guesthouse offers a magnificent view of Chau Chau Kang Nelda peak. 'Tsedup's house' is perfect to learn about the culture of people who stay in one of the remotest places of India.

We at NotOnMap believe in “living like a local” and when you are in Spiti, living in one of the rustic stays of the valley, don’t miss the chance to savor their local dishes.
In 'Tsedup's house', we try to serve the best authentic local food. For lunch and dinner, locally grown vegetables are served as the part of local Spiti cuisine. If a special request is made in advance by the guests, non-vegetarian food can be arranged.

This homestay is on the top of Hikkim and hence gives you the best experience. There is a co-educational school as well in Hikkim up to eight class. You can visit there if you want to contribute your time in giving helpful insights to the kids.
Komic is at a distance of 4 km, so you can do a day trip to this highest village in Asia. Also, Langza is 8 km from Hikkim and you can spend some time in Langza village too.

Hikkim is 40km from the main town Kaza. You can either get a shared cab or you can hire your own taxi. The route from Kaza to Hikkim is via treacherous road and you would not want to miss the views.

Imagine yourself, you are traveling to a place where you are walking for miles and then you reach to place where you can collect stamps and see worlds highest post office and along with that, someone is offering you some good tea. That's such a soothing experience.
Tsedup has done the same thing by providing some free tea and local snacks to the guests who used to stop by this remote village. When he saw that people are coming this far and they are not being able to explore the entire village as well, so he came up with an idea of providing homestay to people where they can stay and they can experience the local life there.
Tesdup was one of the first person who started this homestay with NotOnMap in Spiti.
