Lahaul and spiti , Himachal Pradesh

Kaza is the headquarters of the remote Spiti valley in the Himachal Pradesh. Spiti is very similar to Ladakh or Tibet and is a high altitude cold desert. Kaza is the largest town in this valley and the Spiti and Lahaul district in turn is the largest district in India. This makes Kaza a very important place as it is the epicentre of the entire valley and the means by which the entire valley survives today. One of the places to visit in this land which is still very Buddhist is the Tangyud Gompa. It dates to the early 14th century and is built like a fortified castle with massive slanted mud walls and battlements with vertical red ochre and white vertical stripes. It is on the edge of a deep canyon and overlooking the town of Kaza. This is a sight that will be etched in your mind forever and you get a glimpse of a terrain that is completely alien to you. Kaza seems to be a wonderland from the height of the Gompa. A place that is situated right in the middle of the massive peaks that we only dream of , Kaza is truly a dream destination. One of the places that make you feel grateful for being in the Himalayas it is a trekkers paradise. A land of very colourful festivals, this is the perfect time to visit Kaza. Though closed during the winter, this is the one place that you always want to explore. This is the place that makes your heart expand in your chest. This is what you call a hill station.
