Spiti A Jewel Of Himachal Pradesh

Tripoto

I can’t complete this series on Himachal Pradesh without mentioning two places that are worth visiting, Kaza and Kibber. Kaza is around 12 kms from Kee Monastery. You can approach it from Manali and Shimla both ways. It will be a long drive, you can't complete it in one day, you might need to halt in between before reaching Kaza. While going to Kaza from Manali there is a pass called Kunzum-La, its one of the highest pass.

Kaza is a small but popular town at an altitude of roughly 3700 metres in the Lahaul and Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh. It is the commercial hub of Spiti valley.

Because of its central location it connects all the remote areas of Spiti valley with the outside areas. It is quite popular with trekkers and mountaineers who often camp in Kaza. Near Kaza, there is a Buddha which is so lifelike. There is something so enigmatic about it.

The other must visit places close to Kaza are the Kee/Ki monastery and Kibber village. There is also a Buddhist monastery, Tangyud Monastery, around 4 kms from Kaza. Kaza, because of its geography, has so much of similarity with Ladakh, it almost looks like Ladakh. In fact, Kaza happens to be one of the coldest places in India!
