Tabo to Kaza


Total Distance: 45kms; driving time: 3hrs.

This was the most comfortable of all the other drives; good road and magnificent view. An hour’s drive away is Schichilling, from where one takes a right turn to Dhankar Gompa, 7kms away. Another 5ms towards Kaza is a diversion going to Pin Valley from a place called Attargo.

Kaza is a fairly well developed small town, 3600meters high. We stayed at Hotel Spiti, of Himachal Tourism. It is a good building BUT (1) it is outside the town, though with a good view (2) there was no water in the hotel, which was a horrible experience. From local people we realized the best place to stay in Kaza is “Hotel Sakya Abode” – 01906-222254. Again, as we mentioned before, there is no need to book in advance.

The town has a fair amount of greenery and though some people do have sickness due to the high altitude, we were luck enough not to have it. This problem is more with people coming from Manali due to the sudden ascent.

An hours drive away from Kaza is a beautiful village of Langza, much better than the more publicized village of Kibber. Ki Gompa was good, not really as beautiful as the Gompas in Leh.
