Likir Monastery is differentiated from others by the presence of giant statue of Buddha, which is easily visible while entering. We did not go into the monastery because we were tired, it also has a school opposite to the monastery, where students serve tea to the visitors.

This is a monastery in an amazing location which has an enormous Buddha statue. We visited this while returning from Nubra.

I have my best time pictures at this place with my wife. People are so innocent at hills and very helpful. In this monastery We found things dated 200 to 500 yrs back there belonging to the first lama.

A very beautiful and peaceful monastery with amazing religious arts and a big-tall-golden statue of Lord Buddha at Likir monastery. Once, in this monastery, you will feel blessed and a perfect place for meditation.

The journey was much better than the destination. the monastery was around 30 mins detour from the NH1 on the way back from Alchi. Nothing fantastic about the place other than the 75ft tall Future Buddha statue. There were streams of water from the mountains, cool tasty water.

The likir and hemis monasteries had that typical devine aura where peace and tranquility could be easily and readily felt.
