One of the most iconic landmarks of Spiti, the Key Monastery is located at an altitude of 4166 metres. The Monastery is located close to the Spiti river around 15 kms from the district centre of Kaza.
I visited this monastery in October 2018 on a solo bike ride to Spiti from Delhi when I covered Theog, Kalpa, Tabo, Kaza, Langza, Komic and Hikkim before heading to Key.
Here’s my journey to the picturesque Key Monastery in pictures:
I started my trip to Key Monastery from Kaza in the morning.
The route between Kaza and Key Monastery is a beautiful stretch of metalled road that goes along the Spiti River.
You need to cross the Key Village and move a little further ahead and take a turn towards the road to Key Monastery.
