Kye Monastery

Located at the 4200 Meters of altitude, right in the middle of Spiti valley is this majestic monastery, called Kye Monastery. A monastery which has seen many destruction and damages but still standing tall and strong. House for around 250 monks, its a 30 minute drive away from Kaza town of Spiti. Best seen from two places, Rangrik and Gete. Both these places gives a complete different view of Kye monastery.

In my so many trips to Spiti Valley, I always spent sometime clicking the wonderful views of Kye Monastery at different time of the day, best being the sunrise, when watched from Rangrik Village.
