But what distinguishes Alchi next to the pretty monastery from many other places, is the accessibility of the most attractions, because the place is located on a broad river terrace along the Indus, so that it has less to do with steep paths in thin air. Two quiet hotels, several private accommodation and restaurants with fine simpler cuisine complement an offer that ensures a pleasant stay of several days between Leh and Lamayuru.View original
