Diskit village is located about 7 Km prior to the Nubra Valley along the hilly terrain which houses the monastery. As one enters the gate of the monastery, there is a public school to the left followed by two inner roads. One towards the left leads to the prayer hall where the 32 meter high Maitreya Buddha statue stands tall. The sheer volume of the statue speaks for magnificence in itself. The paintings and surrounding arts leaves one bewildered about the capabilities of a human hand.
The road to the right takes us to the monastery. However, reaching the temples within the monastery involves a climb of steep stairs. We did go all the way up to the top of the monastery and were blessed with a magnificent view of the Hunder/ Nubra valley.
The location of the Diskit Monastery is truly superb and offers a grand view of the Nubra Valley. One really needs to stand at the top to truly understand what nature has to offer for us. Anybody with a camera be it a high end DSLR or a simple camera on mobile phones would go crazy to capture the picturesque images.
Any amount of time spent at the monastery would feel less; still to make it all count one could keep aside 1 hour aside to visit this monastery.
