The Panoramic Komik Village in Himachal Pradesh         

Komik Village in the beautiful state of Himachal Pradesh ticks off all the boxes when it comes to possessing the attributes of a quaint Himalayan tuck-away. With mountains capped with snow, majestic vales, and picturesque views, not to forget its warm residents, Komik is one of those less treaded destinations where visitors can experience a slice of heaven on earth. At a height of 18000 ft above sea level, Komik Village is also the highest village in Asia- yet another feather in its already illustrious cap.


The highest motorable Buddhist monastery

A significant attraction of Komik Village that captivates visitors to this place is the renowned 14th-century Lundup Tsemo Gompa Buddhist Monastery, with its strong castle-like structure made of slanted mud walls, showcasing the murals, scriptures, and arts of the days gone by.

The monastery is famous for Maitreya Buddha or 'the future Buddha,' which, according to the local populace, is what takes care of their well-being. It also happens to be the highest motorable Buddhist monastery in the world and is a haunt for zealous bikers and other travelers.

The legend behind the Komik monastery

It is said that even before the monastery was built, it was prophesized that a monastery in the shape of the eye of snowcock would be made in the mountainous region at Spiti. That is how the name ‘Komik’ came to be where 'Ko' stands for the snowcock and 'Mik' refers to eye.

Other Facts about Komik

The quaint little village hosts different festivals all year round, one of the main attractions being the Lamas doing Chham dance or mask dance.

During the snow months, however, Komik gets cut off from the rest of humanity. The people keep themselves well-stocked for those cold months with grains and other supplies to last them throughout the bitter chill. During this time, they spend their days mostly weaving carpets, shawls as well as making jackets, caps, paintings, etc.


Where to stay in Komik?

Although Komik does not boast of the highest standards of luxury in its accommodation, the warmth and hospitality of the local people more than makeup for it. You will find homestays and hotels with basic facilities for tourists here. For those looking for a more comfortable stay, they can opt for Kaza. The best time to visit Komik is in the summer months when the Rohtang Pass stays open.
