The monastery offers the most stunning views of the nubra valley. It holds the tallest buddha statue we encountered in our entire leh trip. You can sit here for hours and enjoy the beauty of valley.

Built in 14 century, this place is near Nubra valley in Disket. It is situated on the top of a small hillock from where NUBRA VALLEY is seen in its colour. There are Protector and sakya muni Buddha temples worth visiting.

On the way to the Nubra valley or on your return, do not miss this beautiful monastery situated atop a small mountain. Standing tall, the figurine of Maitreyi Buddha will overwhelm you. This faces the shyok river and overlooks another monastery.

At the top you can enjoy the peace and solitude that we crave for in our city life. The old monastery visible from... More
