At an altitude of 3700 m, Kaza is located on the left bank of Spiti river and is the largest township and commercial center of the valley. Kaza is known for its colorful festivals and a Buddhist monastery of the Sakya sect. It is also popular with tourists and adventure seekers during summer months because of its central location and connections to rest of the valley and outside. This central location also makes Kaza an ideal base camp for trekking, mountaineering and tours directed to other parts of the valley.
Kaza being the centre of all activity has a few hotels, guesthouses and restaurants. Kaza also has the only ATM machine in the whole of Spiti valley but it is not always active. We suggest you do not rely on it.
