Tabo is a small town in the Lahaul and Spiti district on the banks of the Spiti River, just 40 km from the border with Tibet. The town lies on the road between Rekong Peo and Kaza. Tabo was founded by King Yeshe Od of the Purang-Guge dynasty in West Tibet in the late 10th century CE. The king began a missionary campaign throughout his realm to invigorate Tibetan Buddhism. Perched at an elevation of around 3050 m above sea level, the town offers picturesque views to visitors and is surrounded by brown hills. The town surrounds a Buddhist monastery which, according to legend, is said to be over a thousand years old. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has expressed his desire to retire to Tabo, since he maintains that the Tabo Monastery is one of the holiest. Tabo's complex of 9 temples and cave shrines represents the oldest continuously functioning Buddhist enclave in India.
