Buddha Statue in one of the Monastery is quite amazing! We dropped here while going to Nubra Valley...spent about less than an hour. You can enjoy some amazing pics in the calm and beauty which surrounds this place.

Very scenic location surrounded by high mountains on one side and open Nubra valley on the other. You could just sit there forever admiring the view. The monastery itself is a standout view from the road up the hill. Once you reach there you will be taken aback by the 100 ft statue.

It is located in Nubra Valley. It is famous for one big Buddha statue. There is one small temple also. Inside the temple photography is not allowed. The view of Nubra valley for the top of the monastery is very nice. Other than that there nothing to see. There is no souvenir shop as well. Journey to Nubra Valley is... More

Hi guys It is one hell of a scenery which I never fail to miss when I am around. I wanted to share some lovely pics of the 106 ft high statue on top of the world. Interestingly I also came to know that there is an old Kali mata temple also co located. Can't wait to explore it. This... More

On your way from leh to Diskit you will meet such great views of nature and in the end you reach tallest statue of Buddha. You will cross this place on your way to hunder.

The Monastery is located on top of the mountain and you can drive up to the Monastery so that makes it very easily accessible. You will get to observe huge Buddha statue with breathtaking views of the valley all around the Monastery. Place is very calm, quiet and serene. A must visit on your trip to Ladakh I would say....

This was a beautiful monastery like all the others we visited but its uniqueness is in the tall statue of Maiterya Buddha which is a piece of art! The view from this place is also excellent. Do visit the small monastery below the statue.

This is easily the best monastery I have visited. The statue is so big that we seem insignificant infront of it. I have been to Wat Pho in Bangkok and I wonder which is bigger of the both but definitely given the serene setting of Nubra Valley and mountains in the back this is the best looking of all. Must...
