Photographer's Note

Spiti where Key Gompa is located is part of western himalaya, a barren and uncompromising land. Spiti is divided into two areas of different morphology. In the south, the Spiti valley is narrower and rocky. In the north it is wider and greener. Key Gompa which you see in the background of Key village is the main monastry of the land. It is situated in the northern area of Spiti between Kaza and Losar. It is one of the most spectacular gompa in the Himalaya. It is built on a small hill like an eagle nest.
Key Gompa is still the seat of the 19th Lochen Tulku:Tenzing Kalsang Rinchen, incarnation of one of the most outstanding religious master of the Himalaya region of all times, the great translator Rinchen Sangpo.
