The surreal Spiti Valley in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh is home to some of the tallest villages in the world. Each of these villages has its own slogan. Hikkim has the highest post office in the world. The world’s highest voting booth is located in Tashigang. Langza is the high altitude fossil village. Dhankar village enjoys one of the highest estuaries. And at 4,587 meters, Komic is one of the highest villages in the world with an accessible road.
In this article we will talk about the remote high-altitude village of Komic. This village, whose name literally means “eye of a snow cock”, houses a simple monastery, an absolutely calm atmosphere and a surreal view of the mountains. But it is the trip from Kaza to Komic that is even more amazing. This journey through some of the highest villages in the world in a diluted atmosphere and surrounded by a 360-degree mountain panorama ensures an exhilarating experience. No matter whether you are on foot, by bike, by motorcycle or by car or jeep, you will be fascinated by this wonderful mountain route.
Depending on the season, the landscape can be either brown, slightly green or white. Most of the year it is brown on the ground, white in the mountains and blue in the sky. The Komic Lundup Chemmo or Tangyud Monastery is the heart of this high altitude village. It is one of the oldest monasteries in the Spiti Valley and one of the highest monasteries in India. A hot butter tea from the monastery monks in front of the monastery while you gaze at the spectacular mountain panorama is an experience here. It is also the perfect excuse to have a chat at tea time with the monks, sharing stories about the monastery, their personal lives, the wildlife that is common here (ibex, snow leopards, etc.) and more.
About 18 km from Kaza, the main town in the Spiti Valley, Komic, one of the highest villages in the world with road access, is also part of my favorite route in Spiti. I strongly recommend you to visit this village the next time you drive to the Himachal Pradesh mountains.
