  • In the whole Spiti Valley, I found Tabo as the most peaceful one because it is located at the center of the mountains. So there is not much strong winds and the sound of running water just makes it more pleasing. If you are on a budget then go to the monastery as they provide accommodation at a very affordable price. For dormitory you only have to pay 100₹ per night for a single person. And if you are in group then you can get a room with king size bed under 400₹ with attached bathroom. The restaurant of Tabo Monastery serves variety of food, so that is also a good option. When I went there, I could not find black coffee anywhere after Shimla till I reached here. So for any black coffee lover out there, here is a small tip😜 So overall it is a great place for affordable stay.
