Photographer's Note

The Sakya Monastery at Kaza is new - inagurated by the Dalai Lama in July 2009 - compared to the ancient monasteries of Dhankhar & Kee that surround the small town. (Kee is about 11Km upstream, while Dhankhar is around 14 Km towards Tabo).
Kaza is the Headquarters of the Spiti region and as is typical of the valley - its largely Tibetan.
The Monastery over looks the Spiti River Valley and is a phantasmagoria of colours amidst the arid brown treekess Spiti region.
