Photographer's Note

The village of Tabo, which is famous for its historic (996 AD) Monastery ( and whose 'chortens' I have previously posted)has comfortable home stay arrangements. The deep red, brown and black colours drawn on white walls present a sharp and deep color that is typical of buddhist monasteries and houses.There is electricity drawn from solar pannels. The mountain folk, living at around 3500 mts. and surrounded by rugged ridges and peaks, are simple and humble. Its an ideal place for a peaceful holiday, without many tourists.

Tabo is a small town in the Lahaul and Spiti district on the banks of the Spiti River in Himachal Pradesh, India. The town lies on the road between Rekong Peo and Kaza (alternative spelling: Kaja), the sub-divisional headquarters of Spiti. The town surrounds a Buddhist monastery which, according to legend, is said to be over a thousand years old. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has expressed his desire to retire to Tabo, since he maintains that the Tabo Monastery is one of the holiest. In 1996, HH the Dalai Lama conducted the Kalachakra initiation ceremony in Tabo, which coincided with the millennium anniversary celebrations of the Tabo monastery. The ceremony was attended by thousands of Buddhists from across the world.
