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.

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.
