往Hemis的路上看到山丘上佇立的Stakna吸引了我們的目光,很慶幸最後有繞進去逛逛,擁有四百年悠久歷史以外,新的小小仁波切正在大家的照顧下成長著,令人感覺到傳承的溫暖與期待! Stakna Monastery catch our eyes on the way to Hemis thus we dropped by there on the way back to Leh. It was a nice warm gompa and we even met a little Rinpoche there!

Stakna, for us, was a worthwhile trip after Thiksey. hardly anyone visits here and we had the place to ourself. A lovely monk gave us a personal guided tour of all the temples. The views also are lovely

Visit the place to get amazing views of the valley around the monastery. The monastery itself, perched on top of the hill next to the river provides an excellent backdrop for landscape photographs in this area.

Stagna monastery is so beautiful, and you can also see the Thiksey monastery from there. Of immense importance to Bhutanese, I felt so much at peace at this monastery. The self-serve tea bar in the main courtyard was of benefit, as I was bit tired...More
