A 100 ft tall buddha statue perched on top of the monastery that has the most amazing goddess tara pictures. You can see from a way above.

Its one of the important monasteries in the Ladakh region. It has a huge statue and the view from the monastery is amazing. Its very peaceful and there aren't too many people around. The experience is very calming and with the beautiful surroundings, its one lovely place to be!

Located on a hill above the plains of Shyok river, Diskit monastry is a heritage of Tibet Buddhism. It offers some of the scenic views of mountains by which it is surrounded. Peaceful and great place to visit in Nubra valley.

For some it is Thiksey, for some it is Alchi, but I like Diskit the most. Divided in two sections the old and the new, it offers a great sight for the photographers. The view from the top is breathtaking

Very old monastery, not very different from other monasteries apart from the wonderful views it offers over the valley and on the snow capped mountains. 20 Rs per person entrance fee.

Next to the gigantic Maitreya statue Diskit Gompa stretches on a mountain edge. The protector chamber was by far the most mystic place of this compound of several houses.

This is the highlight of the Nubra valley trip from Leh. The buddha statue towers over the valley and can be forgiven its rather gaudy paint job. The monastery nearby clings precipitously to the rock promontory on which it is built and is fun to scramble up. Don't miss it!
