Day 6: Kalpa - Kaza
- After an early breakfast, we depart for Kaza, leaving behind verdant, forest clad mountains as we go over the tree line towards the Spiti region. En route you may take a short detour to visit the picturesque Nako Lake. The terrain will leave you breathless and speechless. Rock-hard Desert Mountains, torrential rivers and icy cold winds account for the sparsely populated villages. Reach Kaza, check into the Banjara Retreat and spend rest of the day at leisure.
Day 7: Kaza - Tabo - Dhankar - Kaza
- After an early breakfast, drive down to Tabo and visit Tabo Gompa, reputed to be the oldest (an inscription on a wall here indicates, it was founded in AD 996) continuously functioning Buddhist monastery in India and the Himalayas, with its original decoration and iconographic program intact. We then move on to see Dhankar monastery. Dhankar, the traditional capital of Spiti, sits pretty on a hilltop. The fort here overlooks the Spiti valley and it was used as a jail in olden days. Today, more than 160 lamas reside here. A statue of Dhyan Budha where four complete gures of Buddha sit back to back is the main attraction of this more than seven-century old monastery. Return back to retreat for lunch. Post lunch visit Ki monastery and Kibber village. Ki Gompa is a Gelugpa sect monastery. Its hilltop position points to a post-thirteenth century construction. The three storied structure consists largely of storage rooms at the bottom level, while the middle oor houses the Dukhang- the assembly hall- and the uppermost oor has another temple and the head Lama's quarters, on one side of an open terrace. The greatest wealth of Ki Gompa lies in its collection of 'Thangkas' salvaged with di culty from the devastating raids of the Dogars and the Sikhs in the 19th century. From here a scenic drive takes you into the pasture country of Kibber. The pastures are spread over hundreds of square kilometers. Kibber is small village and is the take o point for the popular trek to Tso Moriri in Ladakh. Further up six kilometers from Kibber, we drive up to a still smaller village of Gete. Consisting of just six houses, it boasts of being the highest village in Asia connected by road.
