Komic village trek: A trek to Highest Motorable Village in the World

Are you prepared to embark on a virtual journey to Komic Village Trek? Let us begin our trekking expedition in Kaza. Kaza is the biggest town in the Spiti Valley and serves as a hub for adjacent locations. You might spend some time in Kaza touring the Key Monastery, the oldest and largest learning center. Once we start our trek from Kaza, there are two routes. One goes down the valley and another upwards towards Komic Village. The trail going upward is a short hike of 2-3 hours and takes us to the Langza Village. 

Langza Village is a tiny village that is protected by the tallest Buddha Statue in the area. Were you aware that Langza Village was originally on the Tethys Sea? The Himalayas arose millions of years ago as a result of tectonic plate movement, and the sea receded. The evidence of this fact is still found around the village in the form of fossils of marine animals. 

Engage here in exploring these Fossils but do not take any home, if found. Spend some time appreciating the beauty of the village. 

Continue the trip, and nearly at 4300 m, make a brief halt at Hikkim Village to mail postcards to yourself and your loved ones at the world’s highest post office. Spend some time with the postmaster, who has been with the post office since its inception, and learn about the challenges of working at the world’s highest post office.  

To attract more tourists to the town, the public works department has redesigned the post office in the shape and color of a post box. Don’t forget to photograph the post office and the magnificent grandeur of the snow-covered Himalayas. 

Spend a night at a Village homestay and experience the hardships of living in a challenging location and also learn about the village’s culture and traditions.

Continue on the Komic Village trek to the world’s highest village, Komic. Tourists might find it challenging to acclimate to the low oxygen supply. Visit the Komic Monastery or Tangyud Monastery, the oldest monastery belonging to the Sakya sect of Buddhism. This Monastery preserves the rich culture and heritage of the Buddhist faith via painting, artwork, and sculptures. Do not pass up the chance to seek blessings from the Mahakal Statue, which possesses divine power. 

Such high altitudes provide an unmatched view of the snow-capped Himalayas, and stillness abounds and this unparalleled view can only be experienced in Spiti Valley Packages. Wrap Komic Village trek with a beautiful, and wonderful Milky Way night where the sky seems endless. At the end of the trek take pride in yourself for accomplishing one of India’s most difficult treks.
