The district Headquaters of Spiti valley. Dhankar monastery is a must visit. Its a nice little town with amazingly friendly people. the town is covered by snow for 4 5 months a year and the locals say they love this thing about their town, It gets them an opportunity to connect well with themselves. You can visit Kibber, Ki monastery, Lalung monastery, Pin valley etc by making Kaza your base. the market is a little expensive but do buy yourself some lovely souvenirs from here.
It is the heart of SPITI Valley and we were fortunate enough to witness it beauty at fullest as the yearly cultural fair was going on at the time when we were there. we stayed there for two days as the petrol pump was closed due to some electric fuse failure. Meanwhile while talking to some stranger we got to know about Komic Monastery few kilometers from the kaza and on second day when we saw that petrol pump is still not opened then we left for KOMIC.
