Early next morning we started from Tabo towards Kaza. On the way we visited Dhankar Monastery located atop a high hillock. This monastery is listed among the 100 endangered sites in the world due to its harsh climate and is mostly inaccessible during winter. One can get an amazing view of the low land and the rough terrains from the windows of Dhankar Gompa.By late afternoon we reached Kaza which is best described as "A world within a world". It is one of the largest township and center of all the major activities in Lahual & Spiti Valley. One can also find the world’s highest altitude retail outlet petrol pump here. If you are travelling towards Manali via Chandratal, it is very much recommended that we get a full tank in Kaza itself. After booking our accommodation for that night we planned to visit Keh and Kibber monastery which is about 13 km from Kaza town. Kibber is the world's highest village connected by motorable road and it has got unique houses made of stone. Even the trails to Kibber is truly mesmerizing. Passing through the narrow lanes of this village we reached Kibber Monastery located at the highest point of it. One can get a splendid view of the village from there. After spending about an hour, we descended towards Keh Monastery or Keh Gompa. Undoubtedly I can say, Keh Monastry is thousand times more spectacular than what I have seen in Google. It claims to be the largest Monastery of Spiti Valley and it can accommodate around 250 monks. Spending a night there and star gazing would have been a fantastic thing, but we were short of time and so we headed back to our accommodation in Kaza.
Pin Valley - Kaza - 50 km (2 hours)*Finally after so much of waiting around 8 pm we reached to Headquarter of Spiti- Kaza (12500 ft)!*In Kaza I stayed in "SOLO YOLO Homestay" At -26 Celsius the hospitality, the food, the care, mainly Fun, really appreciable Staff and management.

*We are waiting for the end of the road, we were tired and scared, we were frustrated with not ending road. High altitude and thin air making us frustrated, But we didn’t realize that we were so close to our dream destination. And at around 9 PM finally, we were in a Headquarter of Spiti - Kaza (12500 ft)!*And then we went to our hotel room. (Norbuling hotel) And Had light dinner and stared at the sky.
