Langza Homestay – Spiti

Langza

Situated on 4420m, 16 km North of Kaza, this picturesque village is blessed with green pastures, snow-clad mountains and barren landscapes. It is certainly the most stunning village in the whole Spiti Valley. The main occupation of the villagers in the olden days was mud craft hence it derives its name Langza (Lang means ‘Temple’ and Za means ‘Pot’). Vessels of all shapes and sizes still can be seen in every home. A visit to Langza is not complete without hunting for million years old fossils. You may find some kids selling them also.  Langza being located at a high altitude, one can spot many endangered species such as snow leopards, Tibetan wolf, Himalayan griffon, etc. around the village during winter.

Food

Since Langza is a very remote place, you mostly get local food. Anjaan will serve you Spitian Bread with jam and butter. Omelet and boiled egg can also be added. He makes a special fried Spitian bread. You may like it with half boiled egg. Tsampa (Barley floor) Cake with honey is something you must try. Tsampa Porridge is also a good option.
