A beautiful old monastery, a little remote, and overlooking spectacular scenery. The snow-capped mountains overlook a rugged landscape, resembling a moonscape. A heavenly experience travelling alone with the local Ladakhi people

The monastery is big & one can find many antique paintings on the walls! One also gets a picturesque view of Lamayuru from the monastery. Must visit place.
