A huge and colorful statue of Maitreya Buddha overlooking the Shyok River and the Nubra Valley. Excellent view of the area, combined with an impressive statue. Do not miss out on this one.

Located above the Nubra Valley, this monastery is the largest and oldest also known as the Disket or Disket Gompa. The statue of Buddha looks down to the valley protecting its people. Distinctly Tibetian in architecture, the summit provides panoramic views of the valley. A must see in visit to Nubra valley.

Diskit monastery is located near Nubra Sandunes, at the monastery there is hug statue of Gompa and the scenery is beautiful there is cold winds goes continuously with sand. It feels for a moment that we came in Rajahsthan.

Below the statue there is temple. one floor below the whole statue's foundation is prayer wheel surround to the building.

You need to buy entry ticket which will cost 20 per head.

Diskit Monastery also known as Deskit Gompa or Diskit Gompa is the oldest and largest Buddhist monastery in the Nubra Valley. The Diskit monastery is situated on the hill, just above the flood plains of the Shyok River, on its right bank in the Diskit village (3,144 metres (10,315 ft)) in Nubra Valley. Nubra River is a tributary of the Shyok River, which flows parallel to the Indus River on the northern side of the Ladakh Range. This impressive 32 metre (106 foot) statue on top of a hill below the monastery, faces down the Shyok River towards Pakistan. The statue's construction was started in April 2006 and it was consecrated by the Dalai Lama on 25 July 2010

Golden Buddha Statue is huge and there are benches in front of it. You can spend some time here and enjoy the quiet atmosphere. Just close your eyes and soak in the view and click some photographs. Must come here either during sunrise or for sunset to capture beautiful sky colors. Good spot for night sky lovers.

Its on an elevation from the road to Hundar in Nubra Valley almost 4km uphill .

The statue of Maitreya Buddha is situated at a little distance from the Diskit Monastery . The statue is huge and the site offers 360 degree view of the Nubra valley.

Most amazing experience… I didn’t know what to expect from this camp. I thought it would be very basic but was pleasantly surprised with the facilities of this modern camp. It’s an experience of a lifetime. Mr.Thashi the owner was most warm and welcoming and it includes his staffs too. They were extremely courteous,warm and patient to the constant demand of all their guest. I had a wonderful experience and loved my camping trip. Food was fantastic and absolutely Yummilicious.
