The 32 meter statue of Buddha will hold your view when you are on your way to the Nubra Valley Sand Dunes. You cannot resist visiting this place as it is just a 30 minute detour. More of a photography destination for tourists.

A must visit place in Nubra valley. Wonder how they erected Buddha of this length yet maintaining the color and braving the extreme temperatures !!

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

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....
