We got up a bit early and left for Nako. On the way we 1st saw Dhangkar Gonpa. It’s also a Monastery located at quite a good height. We clicked a few candids on our way uphill. Dhangkar is one of the 5 major monasteries of Spiti and is in imminent danger of collapsing.
This 1000 year old Gonpa has been recognised by the World Monument Fund as one of the 100 most endangered sites in the world. Next, we visited the Tabo Monastery. Tabo Monastery is one of the most beautiful and very unique and different monasteries that you will come across and hence its a must visit.
It has a sandstone feel and is very different from other Monasteries. Outside this monastery is a German Bakery. We took a Chocolate Ball & Cinnamon & Chocolate Croissant from there and headed for Nako. On the way we came across many hilly and mountaineous areas which even resembled like Moonland in patches.
We finally reached Nako. We were hungry and before reaching our camps, we thought of having lunch outside. We went to a Hotel – Reo Purguil. The food was quite good there! We had Cashew Curry & Paneer in Indian Masala and we liked the food there.
From there we proceeded to our camp. The camp is extremely good, with quite nice facilities however we wanted to stay in a guest house so that we could get a power point to keep our batteries charged and hence we exchanged our camp for Guest House.
The only problem was that the guest house was located at quite a good distance and the location was a bit weird but beautiful. It was situated just above the Nako Lake.…
