Kaza is a small town and commercial center in Spiti Valley in the western Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh. It is located along the Spiti River at an elevation of 3,650 metres.
Kaza is surrounded by high mountain ridges on all sides. It has two access points : one from Kinnaur valley and the other from the Lahaul valley, 11 km from Ki Monastery, the famous Gelugpa establishment. The route through Kinnaur is open throughout the year, except for occasional short periods resulting from landslides or heavy snowfall. This road, starting from Shimla, follows the Sutlej river unto a little beyond Poo, thereafter turning northwards to follow the Spiti river all the way to Kaza.
