This was the third Monastery I Visit on my trip to Ladakh. The monastery is well kept and maintained and it is hard to believe that it has a history of more than 1000 years. The temples inside are usually locked and you have to look for the lhamas to open them. You should talk to them and try to... More

Average when compared to other monastries. Although still a nice place to visit in Leh. The lhamas are very nice to talk to

The Likir Monastery is very beautiful monastery and its worth its drive.. It is situated far up the hills and one can drive right up to the monastery. The big buddha statue is beautiful and is well visible from the main road..

This is one of my favourite monasteries east of Leh. Looks great from a distance and better close up. Interiors of the various temples and the small museum are nothing particularly special. View of the surrounding area is also very good. Worth seeing as part of a day trip from Leh to see the eastern monastery circuit.

The road to Hunder passes through this small village with a large monastery. The statue of "Future Buddha" stands 75 mtr tall and looks stunning amidst the stark landscape. The views from the parapet is equally awesome. Many people miss out the monastery, but once you reach, although the climb can be tiresome, the views appear even more pristine. One... More

To be honest we reached Likir a little late and as we rushed up the uphill path to enter it before it closed for lunch we all became breathless ans wasted more time getting our breath back...tip of the day Do not rush even if you are late. The Dalai Lama is scheduled to visit a few weeks later so... More
