Stunning!

This was in my opinion the most beautiful monastery around Leh. The view from the monastery was great, the monastery was beautiful and its setting within the landscape was amazing.

An extremely peaceful place. To reach this place, cross Saspul (on the Srinagar-Leh highway) and keep a watch towards your left. You will hit the road going towards Likir before entering Leh and after crossing Saspul (approx. 10-12kms away from Saspul). The highway is in excellent condition but the road leading to the monastery is not in a very good... More

Though there is a road leading to the monastery from Likir village, we chose to trek the two kilometers from our home stay and that was a good decision. We got to enjoy the scenery, talked to some of the local people, took lot of pictures and overall a good time there. The monastery was one of the oldest in... More

Although a little far away from Leh town, its worth seeing for the wonderful architecture,The ancient murals are very attractive. The giant seated statue of Buddha should not be missed.

The views from the monastery are too good, so is the Giant Budha statue. The monasteries might look the same, but each one is different in its own way. The main budha is also different in different places. Club the trip to this monastery with that of Alchi.

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

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..
