Dhankar Monastery, Lahaul - Spiti

  • At a cursory glance, you might miss the Dhankar sitting between spurs of rocky cliffs and barren mountains, overlooking the confluence of Spiti and Pin valley. A truly curious landmark, the monastery is perched so precariously amongst rocks that it appears as if it is seconds away from falling all over.

    The unique and inconvenient position inspires wonder and astonishment. The location is also a photograph’s dream – offering perfect shots of the cold valley, tiny mud houses and the rough terrain around. Just 2 kilometres from the famous Dhankar Lake, the monastery is one of the most impressive places to visit in Spiti Valley.

    Location: Lahul and Spiti Valley

    Timings: 6:30 AM to 5 PM throughout the week
