The secluded village of Dhankhar lies at the altitude of 3,894 m (12,774 ft) above sea level. Once the capital of the 17th-century Spiti Valley Kingdom, the village surroundings boast not only the testament of the nature's astounding beauty, but also the remnants of the times long past. On tour of Dhankhar, you can discover the region's history by visiting the ruins of a once formidable fort, offering an excellent vantage point over the Spiti valley. A millennium old monastery, perched on top of a high mountain spur, offers further insight of the area's past. Explore the vicinity of the village, soaking in the serene atmosphere of the unspoiled landscapes dominated by a lake.
