Langza in the backdrop of snow-clad mountains. Langza village, situated at an altitude of 4400 meters, is divided into 2 sections, namely Langza Yongma (Lower) and Langza Gongma (upper). This Homogeneous Buddhist village belongs to the Sakyapa sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Langza houses a population of 137 in 33 households. The mainstay of this village in the olden days was mud craft.
Vessels of all shapes and sizes were produced here and supplied to the entire valley for household use. This craft has dwindled over the ages and the current mainstay is primarily agriculture. The village is adorned by an ancient Lang (Temple) estimated to be around 1000 years old. The Lang is regarded as the headquarters of all the devtas (Deities) of the Spiti Valley. You can also see the Giant Lord Buddha Statue and Langza Monastery in the picture.
