“Working with Spiti Holiday Adventure, in Spiti Valley, has helped me peel away the non functional layers built over years, and has let me connect to my true self.” - Sandhya Subramanyan / 2017
Ever since its inception in 1989, Spiti Holiday Adventure, the most experienced local travel company in Spiti Valley, has been operating in what was traditionally a B2B (business to business) market. All this changed, when we decided to open up the market and connect directly with travellers from all across the world by offering the most authentic local travel experience in the valley, at the best local prices minus any middleman commissions. Despite the 29 years of experience, our mindset is that of a startup - always trying to push boundaries to build a beautiful product. Working here, and being a part of the growing process can be exciting and equally frustrating. Here, the responsibilities are high, lines between work positions are often grey, everyone seems to be doing everything. But most importantly, everyone works towards building something they love.
At Spiti Holiday Adventure, we are a small group of nomads with an unending thirst to explore and build a more authentic local travel experience. Based in Kaza (district capital of Spiti) and Mcleodganj, (yes, we have offices with awesome views), we primarily promotes tours and treks in Spiti Valley. So just another glorified travel agent? Yes and no. Spiti Holiday Adventure, unlike travel ventures, is not a middlemen between travellers and travel suppliers.
Our objective is to operate at the ground level in Spiti Valley, where we promote, explore and document our trails, build our own hotels, train our own local staff and so on. So when you travel with Spiti Holiday Adventure, you visit the stunning Spiti Valley, get a taste of the local travel experience and all this – at local prices.
We believe in product first, sales later. If you are working with us, you’ll probably be wearing multiple hats, juggling various responsibilities and have sketchy work timings. We understand that most people prefer to be given a fixed work timing and a responsibility, but then – we are not most people and if you’ve continued to read this far, you’re probably not like most people either.
Apart from the love for building an exciting product, the team is bound by the love to travel – so there would be a time when you would be typing away to glory behind your computer screen on one day, and the next day, you would be navigating the harsh roads of Spiti Valley.
At Spiti Holiday Adventure, it’s possible. Click here to know more about the team.
We believe in smaller teams that are committed and dedicated to our cause. This means that if you do something magical, it gets noticed and appreciated. One of our team members came from Mumbai for a two week project to videograph a certain folk dance in Spiti Valley. He loved the place and our work so much, that he decided to stay back and work on our logistics. Next year, along with continuing to document the valley for us, he took over our operations at our office in Kaza.
So when you work with us, you work with no maps, borders or coordinates. You are free to explore your own line of work if you think it would add value to the organization and would help us build our vision. If you’re keen on doing innovative work, travelling, and solving problems and creating opportunities, we welcome you to join us on our journey.
At Spiti Holiday Adventure, we are a product-first organisation. And this position makes you the captain of the ship.
As Product Head, you will be helping define and drive the present and future of the way people travel to Spiti. You will take on complex tasks involving operations, communication, content, marketing and sales - and transform them into making Spiti Holiday Adventure a more efficient and lovable travel brand.
We’d love it if you are a visionary and a systems-level thinker with an outstanding intuition and strong instincts. Even more love if you are a hardworking and self disciplined person, fluent in English and Hindi, can write grammar-Nazi approved emails, and do not shy away from new challenges with your morning cup of chai.
Brownie points if you have at least 3 - 5 years of work experience in any sector. Brownie points with strawberries if you’ve worked in the travel / event planning / client servicing / digital marketing sector and cringe when you see an ugly font.

Spiti can be a hard place to reach - physically and virtually. At Spiti Holiday Adventure - we take communications very seriously.
Being the most experienced local travel organisation in the area, it’s our responsibility to ensure that the traveller gets the best information available, as quickly as superhumanly possible.
As Communications Head, you get the opportunity to build new bridges of information and redefine the way travellers consume this information - digitally, and on ground. We are looking for someone who is super-fluent in written English and spoken Hindi, is #always-online, knows the latest trends in digital marketing, can analyse big data and effectively run a seven digit budget advertising campaign.
Your skills will help us in guiding potential travellers over email and phone, generating and managing marketing content (copy / photo / video), and working in sync with the ground and operations team to ensure that all the road trips and treks are functioning on autopilot.
We’ll go “yaaas!” if you have at least 3 - 5 years of experience in the digital marketing / advertising sector, can write smart copy, have an eye for aesthetic visual design, and of course - cringe when you see a bad font.
