This is a beautiful Monastery. Also very big. Not far from Leh, easily accessible. One can also spend a night there if your agent is able to arrange for it.

excellent location, well preserved and maintained heritage.
Very peaceful and soothing experience. Once you stand in front of the large statue of Lord Budha, you do feel the loving blessings being showered on you, Take some time and practice meditation in the silent environment at the monastery. A must visit place for visitors to Leh.
