Nako Monastery Spread across the valley of vastness in Lahaul and Spiti, the Nako monastery is nestled in the Nako village. One of the most scenic monasteries in the country, you can easily stay in the guestrooms of the monastery. The monastery receives a considerate amount of footfall during the summer months but during the winters the monastery remains fairly remote.

If you are unable to find a room to stay in the monastery you can easily opt for a home stay in the village, the locals are always happy to help.
