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...

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.
