Lahul and Spiti created as two civil sub-divisions with an area of 12,210 sq. km. and a population of 23,538 persons according to 1971 census, was made into a district in 1960.The density of population works out at about 2 per sq. km. now. The entire population is rural.

From 1846 to 1914 after the area came under the British, Lahul-Spiti was a part of Kulu sub-division of Kangra district. It may be mentioned here that the original Kangra district under the British has now been divided between present Kangra, Kulu, Una, Hamirpur, Lahul and Spiti and Kangra districts of Himachal Pradesh.

In 1941, a separate sub-tahsil was made comprising of Lahul and Spiti areas. That was the nucleus of the district made in 1960. The district headquarters is at Keylong. Kaza is the headquarters of Spiti sub-division with a population of a little above 300 souls. Though small in area and population the district has its importance in India being a significant frontier district.
