Upon our return from the Nubra Valley region I would have loved to stop and visit this scenic-looking monastery (well, OK: almost all of the Ladakhi monasteries are scenic-looking!), but we didn't have the time.

Located at isolated place of Leh. Monastery is nothing different from other monasteries. Under renovation/construction till June 2016. Can be avoided if you are short of time and visited most of other monasteries of Leh. Located on the hilltop as other monasteries.

Chemrey or Chemdey as it is called locally, seems uninhabited; or rather its not active like Hemis. But it is really beautiful and I liked it best. Very scenic views, and isolated feel that the monasteries of bygone days must have had.

The drive to this monastery is really stunning. Situated on a hill it looks like a picturesque postcard. Unfortunately it was not hat restaurated and many parts were under construction. But really worth to see.

This beautiful and scenic monastery on the top of a hillock, just away from the main Leh - Pangong lake road at Sakti village must be seen for its architecture.
