You can take photo with Buddha statue.

The Buddhha statue is just amazing. The detailed work and the monastry is really breadth taking. Although its a little diverted from the main road but still a must visit.

Yet another beautiful monastery close to the banks of the Sindhu (Indus) river. You cannot miss the massive (20 + metre tall) golden Maitreya Buddha perched benevolently on the monastery. This is also where you get to understand some of the legends associated with the Yellow-hat/scarf sect. The drive down to Likir from Leh is stunning !

There is a huge statue of Buddha overlooking the city. Very nice view from the top. When we went into the building there were details on life of Buddha. It was quite place.

This is one of the most enchanting monasetries situated in Nubra Valley. The monastery is famous for the largest statue of Buddha in this area. The view from the terrace is breathtaking.The main monastery is quite old and has beautifully carved Buddha statues. The serenity and calm is bestowed on all visitors.

Located on the top of a hill on the banks of river Indus, this monastery is absolutely breath taking. The huge statue of Maitreya Buddha, prayer hall, murals, the unique jupiter tree and the entire complex appears to be a Temple in heaven.

When I visited this place, it was a Stormy afternoon. Full valley, rocky mountain, desert and sand storm. Experienced the most dangerous storm in my life in this high altitude. Strom comes slowly covers the whole valley in sand, it stands at least 30 mins. We are fortunate, I must say, enough to experience this thing. You can see whole... More
