If you are planning trip to kaza Must read this. To experience the true charm of the vast Himalayas one must visit Kaza – the picturesque town in the Lahaul and Spiti Valley perched atop 12,500 feet. With the arid Himalayan mountains guarding the town and impregnable passes making it an obscure place to reach, Kaza truly deserves all the hype that has been ever said about it. Thatched age-old houses, ancient monasteries, and crystal clear rivers are the tourist attractions that make Kaza a popular place to visit in Himachal.
If you are planning a visit, there are New Kaza and Old Kaza for you to explore. While Old Kaza is all about the palace, monasteries, gompas, and ancient buildings, the New Kaza is all about government buildings, restaurants, and tourist point of contact. I’d still say Old Kaza, with its vast landscapes and lush meadows is any day the top charmer here. Hardcore travelers prefer this destination to wander around and walk the lesser walked trails. Having said that, adventure activities such as trekking and mountaineering make for a major pull for all the extreme adventure enthusiasts.
While the ancient monasteries and gompas still testify the great and glorious culture and tradition from the past. As regards the stay, there are plenty of homestays in and around Kaza preferred by tourists. The major advantage of staying in a homestay in Kaza is that one gets to experience the amazing hospitality and live the Spiti way of life there. Monasteries also offer good accommodation, sumptuous local served with graciousness to the tourists.
