Dhankar Monastery in the Spiti Valley is one of the most impressive Buddhist monasteries in India. While my love for Buddhist monasteries is self-confessed, this one bowled me over.
I packed my bags for a road trip, still figuring out a perfect itinerary for Kinnaur and Spiti, with little expectations and more of apprehensions. It had been raining quite heavily in the region I was heading off for, complete with landslide scares and more. So much so that friends were messaging me to ditch the trip for some time later. But then, I was waiting for the trip from past few months and the very thought of changing my travel plans was saddening me. So, yes, I packed my bags and left.
