    A serene, tranquil calming experience at this small town, approximately a 1.5 hour drive from Kaza town. Hence try leaving early or else spend a few night here, you will find a few hotels or homestays.
    We had a very unique experience at this particular Monastery, the monks showed us around and toke us inside and gave a wholesome information about the monastery.

    A must visit in Kaza.
    Key Monastery is perched at a hill top, and looks like an out of the ordinary structure surrounded by barren mountains.

    One is welcomed with a calm and serene environment.
    We were unaware, but one could stay at the monastery for around Rs.200 a night - would have been an amazing opportunity but we were hard pressed for time.

    The top of the monastery allows a 180 degrees view of the amazing mountains, river along the side, and unseen landscapes !

    At the time we went, Hikkim was supposed to be the World's highest post office.
    The post office there actually has a plaque stating the same.
    The route from Kaza to Hikkim has some fantastic landscape views.

    This was a rememberable place for us , since we were invited into a Monk's home for tea, and had a great time interacting with his family.

    When I got know the story of Gue mummy how the monk got mummified him/herself while meditating and starving. Village was small with very little population and no staying option. Route to Gue was demarcated properly after reaching village a narrow road leads to monastery which houses Gue mummy. When we visited Gue, road work was in progress and we had to find the path between the gravel piles. When we thought it was over a steep descend it looked impossible for me to do it on own and reach the Gompa. So we took help from worker who was working on road construction work to help us climb down. Mummy is housed in a small room in a glass box.

    Visited Key monsatery in July 2019 duirng the bike ride to Spiti valley.. From Kaza, we planned a day for sightseeing to Kibber, Langza and Key Monsatery + Komic and Hikkim... all of these can be easily done in a day..

    Key monsatery provides a very good view of the river and snow capped peaks in the background.. we were fortunate that the monks there let us go inside the dark caves meant for meditation; that was like a complete different feeling, to imagine monks sitting there in peace for hours and probably days/ months.

    Tabo monastery has a very old history. In fact, the mud plastered old monastery is a gem with lots of exquisite paintings. Often it is referred to as ‘Ajanta of the Himalayas’. It was heartening to see that the paintings were in good health.
    One must visit this place during sunny morning for better visibility due to diffusing natural light from the top.

    Sakya Monastery is a typical Tibetan monastery in Himachal Pradesh. Border states Himachal and Arunachal have population of Tibetan migrants and they have established several Monasteries as places of worship and imparting religious education to future Dharma Gurus or Lamas from childhood. A must visit when you are in Kaza.

    Komic was known as the world's highest village with a motorable road. ( not sure if the title still exists)

    Its a small village with nothing much to do as such.
    However, the drive from Kaza to Komic has to be one of the most mind blowing ones that I have taken.

    The landscape and horizon views were along the route were mesmerizing.
    Some of the turns & bends left us confused to say the least.
    We were not expecting such a picturesque and untouched terrain !

    We left Kaza for Losar. We passed through Kibber,once the highest motorable village in the world,now the second highest,the highest motorable village nowadays is Komic, again in the Spiti valley.
    On the way we passed through the Chicham Bridge. It was a staggering experience to view the bridge. Lovely experience.
    India’s Spiti Valley is home to wonders that make for a lifetime’s experience. While most of those wonders are quite popular in the tourism circuit, there is a secret that not many know about. Yes, it is home to Chicham Bridge, the highest bridge in Asia, and quite an astounding spectacle at that.

    The bridge is at a staggering height of 13596 ft and connects the two villages named Chicham and Kibber. Look down this one and you will find yourself gaping below, at a 1000 ft deep gorge! The gorge below is known by the name of Samba Lamba Nallah; the making of this bridge cuts down the journey from Kibber to Losar by 40 kms.
    Chicham Bridge was constructed over a course of 15 years, and was inaugurated in 2017. It costed a whopping INR 485.50 lakhs to get the bridge constructed. It has recently become quite a rage with the travellers, a number of them taking videos and photos of the phenomenon.

    Travellers can also move towards the Chandratal Lake after crossing the bridge, another wonder that lies in the folds of the Himalayas here. You can also explore the surrounding region that comprises of Kaza, Komic, Langza, Dhankar, Tabo and Nako. Those keen to explore more can also head to the Mud village. We five couples visited all the above places.

    I went to Shashur Monastery. The panoramic view of the river, mountains and Keylong town from the monastery is amazing. The prayer rooms are bedecked with large paintings and wall paintings, making this place even more worth the visit. It is great place to go.
