All about Old monasteries and people
The trip was a bit off from a certain journey I used to do. Little out of comfort zone for a person who is getting on into the minus temperature from living into 40 Degree Celsius.
But the biggest relief for me that I was there in the safe hands. I was travelling there with team Soloyolo.in and they are well experienced in this kind of offbeat places as they are taking trips for a few years now.
In continuation of my blog’ First part:- on our way to Kaza we have visited these monasteries: Tabo, Dhankar-Gompa, Giu, & after reaching Kaza -Kye-Gompa.
Tabo is a small town in the Lahaul and Spiti District on the banks of the Spiti river. The town surrounds a Buddhist monastery which, according to legend, is said to be over a thousand years old.
This is one of my favourite quote for mountains. Spiti was an experience like none other for me. The squish of snow at each step. I experienced it all from mud houses to warm smiles of villagers when we reached there, snuggling in our jackets in -15 degree of night, clutching chai and trading stories with fellow travellers. I can still feel the goosebumps as the cold mountain breeze froze my breath.
Trust me the Himachali people are the best welcoming the people in the world. They smile at you who never make you feel like you are away from home. Also when you explore the place, you don’t know what you may encounter next!
Lastly, the beauty of the moment you are in and the place where you are, you would have no words to describe it at all. Not even the pictures do justice for a place like Spiti.
