Pangmo is a quaint little village in Spiti Valley, 27 km from Kaza on the way to Manali. It is home to 28 families and offers spectacular views of the Spiti river and the valley. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks and scaling mountains on all sides, the village is yet untainted by tourists. It has a local nunnery that you can visit any time for a welcoming cup of tea and unforgettable conversations with the nuns. The locals of the village radiate warmth, live in harmony with each other and are always ready for a chat.
It is a traditional Spitian home with rustic interiors and handmade carpets. It has two bedrooms with twin beds, a kitchen and a dining area with a traditional room heater. You may stay in tents pitched within homestay’s compound. They have a common western toilet and also a dry compost toilet because of scarcity of water in Spiti. The homestay is located right at the ledge of the valley and opens up to magnificent views of the river meandering into the lap of the mountains.
You will be welcomed by a charming couple, Tenzin and Dikit Namka. Tanzin Namka has a hospitality degree from Singapore and was the President of Spiti Youth from 2013 – 2015. He has a great passion for Spitian culture and is striving to preserve it in the face of intruding modernity. He loves having conversations about history, culture, practices of the locals. It is a learning experience to sit and share a cup of tea with him. Dikit is a warm and gentle lady and is a homemaker in the true sense. She makes beautiful traditional gloves, carpets and shawls; and is more than willing to teach you a few things about knitting.
Tenzin serves fresh home made and healthy food. He is an expert chef and specializes in local food. Tibetan Momos, Thentuk, local thali, Daal with rice are some of his popular preparations. Seabuckthorn tea is a must-try.
