Tabo remains isolated from the rest of the world for nearly   of the year. Bad weather (including snowfall) makes the valley inaccessible. Trekking is possible only during a limited period of the year. However, necessary amenities for trekkers are readily available with the local shops.


The routes that get you to Tabo are: Boarding facilities at the Tabo Monastery

  • Up to Shimla by air, rail or road. By road from Shimla to Tabo- 365 kms. This is via Narkanda, Rampur, Jeori, Wangtu, Karcham, Powari, Jangi, Puh, Khab, Chango and Hurling. Overnight stops enroute are possible. 

  • Upto Kullu by air or road. By road from Kullu to Tabo- 295 kms via Rohtang Pass, Gramphoo, Batal, Kunzam Pass and Kaza.

Kaza is the headquarter of Spiti. It claims to have the highest gas filling station in the world.  Tabo is 33 km away, and a slow 2 hour drive by bus form Kaza. This is definitely a more demanding route.
