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

Likir monastery is different than the other monasteries as a large gold painted Buddha statue adorns the entrance. The views from this place and the surrounding mountains are gorgeous.

Everything that surrounds this 900 plus year monastery is time-trapped and beautiful. The road that approaches the monastery is very scenic with colorful chortens against mountainous backdrop. A 75 ft high 'golden' statue of Maitreya Buddha (the future Buddha) is visible from the distant road that leads to the monastery and is a source of comfort and blessing for the... More

As you drive to Likir, you can see the Buddha statue. It beckons you. Once on the top, you are enamoured with the statue. I have taken beautiful pictures. You can walk around peacefully, visit the prayer room, look around. You feel like staying around and being there. Like the Lamayuru monastery, I liked this one too.

Drive up is spectacular and you're rewarded with amazing views from the walls of the monastery. There's a little museum here with religious and domestic art and artefacts but its all topped by the huge golden Maritreiya Buddha!

Get a driver and go out to this amazing monastery on the Indus flood plain. The views of the mountains will provide some great photos, and the monastery itself is exactly what you expect a Tibetan Buddhist monastery to be. Brilliant!

Literally strayed into Likir, following a convoy of cars carrying foreign devotees. The upside was that the head monk had planned a conducted tour for the visitors and we tagged along ! Don't know his name but he offered meditation retreats to the visitors in the remote huts on mountain tops. No takers !
