Have been to this Monastery on my way back from Alchi during a day biking trip from Leh. I took some time to play with the children on the streets near the Monastery. You are allowed to sit and meditate in the prayer hall. Very peaceful and beautiful. You can speak to a few monks and also the kids here... More

The road to Likir is a nice one, black top, with beautiful views. The monastry itself is off the main road, tucked away into the wilderness. After parking your car you are greeted by a huge statue of maitreya buddha. You will mostly have the place to yourself, quiet, beautiful, and peaceful. Towards one side are the bare moutains, the...

Its a site again not to miss it. Never thought such a big statue is made and is part of our country. I was awestruck.

Maybe Likir is not quite on the typical tourist beat, so the murals seem to be so much more attractive; maybe because the murals are hoary; maybe because this was the first Ladakhi monastery I saw. The sum and substance is I was rather impressed and came away feeling what a fantastic place. But the murals are truly classy; and... More

Frankly,dont even think about taking selfies in front of this statue. Place is very informative as well reflects lots of buddist beliefs and values, all in all good place to visit. It will take close to 5 hours from Leh to reach this place. Leave at early hours of day to avoid roadblocks.

The location is very beautiful and like some other Monasteries you will get a very beautiful view from the top. The Lord Buddha statue is a very tall one. There is a school also nearby, which is run by the local Monks.

Beautiful location - after visiting have a black tea in the grounds of the school prepared by the students and chat with them - always keen to improve their English. Be amazed by the enormous golden Buddha built recently to restore calm to the valley
