The Lahaul & Spiti district is a unique  socio-physical unit of Himachal Pradesh. Its two components, the  sub-divisions of Lahaul & Spiti, are in turn equally distinct from each   other in several respects. Lahaul  constitutes the western and physically more accessible area of the  district.

Separated by high mountains ranges from  Jammu & Kashmir territory on the north, Kullu and Bara Banghal on the  south, Spiti on the east and Chamba on the west, Lahaul is a physically  closed unit. In its west, however, the Chenab river forces its way by a  narrow valley, while in the north-east the Yunan river flows into a  Zangskar.
