Keylong Tailormade Holidays

The friendly town of Keylong is the capital of the Lahaul district in Himachal Pradesh. Sitting in the green Bhaga Valley, Keylong abounds in natural beauty with snow-capped peaks, undulating hills and lush green fields interspersed with pretty streams. It's an ideal place for nature lovers with a number of pleasant walks around the surrounding hills and the area also provides for adventure sports including rock climbing, mountaineering and skiing in the winter.

Its location on the Indo-Tibetan border means it displays a strong Tibetan influence including a number of Buddhist temples and monasteries. Founded in the 12th century, the Kardang Monastery houses a large, popular library with volumes of Buddhist scriptures whilst the 17th century Shashpur Monastery has a number of paintings depicting the history of 84 Buddhas.

Keylong also possesses a small museum with an interesting collection of traditional costumes, old dance masks and treasures collected from local gompas, a fortified monastery with its own university.

Between the months of November and June the town is completely cut off from the rest of the world due to heavy snowfall. During summer regular buses go to Keylong from Manali and Leh.
