I visited the monastery during my Spiti Left Bank trek last week. One can really walk for miles to visit this place. How delicately the 1000 year old structure is perched on the cliff! We visited the monastery and climbed up to a room where beautiful paintings of the ancient times are preserved.
The view from the monastery top is breathtaking- the confluence of River Spiti and River Pin.

The ride up is stunning as is the views from the approach.

The Gompa itself is a scruffy, but the accommodation at the monastery is great as are the meals.
The walk to the gompa is only about 20 minutes, and village life just carries on as per normal.

Seen from the top of the Dhankar monastery, the confluence of Spiti and Pin River is completely breath taking. A bird’s eye view taken from the Green Dhankar Valley left us all in complete awe of top of this monastery. Wrapped around with tattered yet colorful Tibetan prayer flags Dhankar had a lot to offer for the inspired mountain photographer.

If you are in Spiti, do not miss Dhankar monastery. The monastery is a mud and wood construction and one of the oldest monastery in the region. The view of the village from the Monastry is also great. The whole experience of being there is just amazing and difficult to describe. But it is definitely breathtaking!
