The beautiful town of Kaza is located at an altitude of about 12,500 ft., on the left bank of the Spiti River in the majestic Lahaul and Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh. It is known as the sub-divisional headquarters of Spiti and the largest township in the Lahaul and Spiti Valley, which is one of the most beautiful valleys of Himachal Pradesh. Kaza is surrounded by high mountains, crystal clear river & streams, and barren landscapes interspersed with green landscapes and meadows.
Monasteries and gompas are the repositories of the ancient culture and tradition of Kaza. Tabo Monastery is one of the oldest Buddhism centers in the western Himalaya, is located here. Murals of Tabo Monastery are quite similar to Ajanta paintings. It is also the best place to watch Lama dance and get insights into Tibetan Buddhism.
