Famed as the highest motorable village in Asia, Komic in Spiti Valley is at an altitude of 5150 m above sea level. The village has around a dozen houses, one monastery, and a population of around 150, including the monks. The place has unspoilt scenery, lush surroundings, snow-covered peaks, and barren landscapes.
During the winter (November to March), the village is cut from the rest of the civilization due to heavy snow and not having roads. The temperatures can fall below minus 30 degrees Celsius. At that time, the only mode of transportation is a yak. The nearest school is an hour away, and there is a lack of daily necessities. But, despite all these difficulties, the villagers are helpful, happy, and friendly.
