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.

Stunning beauty of this corner long last, the white walls contrast nicely with the colorful windows, magnificent mountain back with this beautiful range of colors, the blue sky is resounding another nice bonus to the composition. The backlight of the branches of that tree add great charm.
Have a nice weekend.

Your image conveys perfectly the sense of the simple life these people live, and of the majestic beauty that surrounds them. Such wondrful colour, and the contrast of the white smooth walls against the rugged mountain is brilliant. All topped with that wonderful blue sky. Thanks for a great image, and as always, a great note.
All the best

Excerpt shown great monastic town and raw, wild mountain in the background. Tree to the left of the composition closes beautifully. How do I see the inscription on the pillar, the monks invited for coffee espresso. Beautiful, vibrant colors and excellent image quality.
गुड आफ़्टरनून. अंश कच्चे, पृष्ठभूमि में जंगली पहाड़ के महान मठवासी शहर को दिखाया गया है. संरचना के बाईं ओर ट्री खूबसूरती से बंद कर देता है. मैं स्तंभ पर शिलालेख कैसे देखते हैं, भिक्षुओं कॉफी और एस्प्रेसो मशीनों के लिए आमंत्रित किया. सुंदर, जीवंत रंग और उत्कृष्ट छवि गुणवत्ता. तुम्हारा.

Most of these houses with typical Tibetan architecture in Tabo have been converted to guest houses or home stays. Nice picture showing the lovely blue sky contrasting with the barren mountain slopes. Nice image!
