  • Diskit Monastery one of the oldest and largest monastery of Ladakh region. Situated on a hill and at the edge of the approach road. To go to monastery has to climb the steps made of stone. However on reaching the top get a excellent view of whole valley. An impressive 32 meter statue of Maitreya Buddha has been built on top of a hill below the monastery. The view of valley from the statue site is very impressive and splendid.
  • Diskit Gompa is a beautiful place surrounded by hills and valleys. There is a Buddha's statue situated here at this height is alone in whole world at this height and size, near diskit monastery. you can reach here by motor ways and by motor cycles also. to stay here 3 to 4 days is sufficient. you will found here hotels and huts to stay. You can come here families also. nearest best visit destination is Panahong Lack (only salty water at this height)
  • Awesome place to experience a monastery. Its surreal. The road to Diskit Gompa has challenging slopes. Worth visiting when u come till Nubra valley
  • Amazingly serene, beautiful place. The future Buddha statue is mersmerising amongst lofty mountains and scenic landscape. Must visit in Nubra Valley
  • It may be one of the rarest place where you can find all the 3 together. but Dont forget to enjoy camel ride there.Evening is the best time to be there in deserts.One small river and restaurant is also there which is good.Diskit is approx 18 km from there and thoise is also nearby which is military airforce base.There are only small guest house there in the near by area which offers delicious food. You should always take full care of your self drink lots of water in the day time and keep taking rest wnenever you got time so that you can enjoy fully.
