Looking for Home stay in Lahlung Village then Ang Mo offers Home Stay here. Lahlung is a big village and more organized and cleaner than all the villages we have visited on our way. The alleys between the houses are clean and farmlands stepping up to the Lingti River far below are neatly shaped beside one another. Here in this village we had the finest Spitian home stay so far, especially worth remembering for our host in the Ang Mo home Stay in Lahlung. We encountered a young boy named Lobsang Norbu who is in charge of the facility and his service, guidance and behavior made us remember the great Buddhist tradition of history to consider guest as god fallen prey to the spiritual service of earthly human.
The hot water massage for our sore legs was followed by the meticulous description of Lobsang regarding the landscape and attraction around our route in the trekking in the Spiti valley. The narrator boy is also a fine cook and he served us with some Tibetan specialties interspersed with two three cups of tea. With his detailed and almost picturesque description, coziness of the place and a fine dining we really had a nice holiday stay in Lahlung village of Himachal pradesh. In the morning Lobsang served us hot pancake and as agreed yesterday evening accompanied us to the local monastery which to our amazement hold some of the greatest historical as well as spiritual treasure in the entire Spiti valley.
The Lama related to us the history of the monastery and the spiritual meaning as well as historical significance of all the statues. Though his enumeration was a stereotype involving same readable explanation of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, there was a simplicity and directness in his mode of talking and frankness in his voice and soon we were completely immersed in those descriptions and explanations. The monastery beside the big statues of Buddha, Guru Padmasambhaba and other incarnations houses great range of hanging statues of sitting Buddha from wall to wall. All these statues along with main monastery are more than two thousand years old and depict numerous poses of Buddha in sitting or in meditation. Our time to leave Lahlung came as soon as we came out of monastery. Lobsang is standing in the sun with his glittering youth shining all over and all we could do is to wave our hands with heart pounding slow in mourning for this departure. The memory of Lahlung is a short one but it would always glitter deep down the panorama of memory of the summer trekking in the Spiti valley.
