  • Ladakh and Lahul feature beautiful Buddhist Hill monasteries, such as Kye, Phugtal, Thiksey or DisKit - and even Lamayuru. Some of these monasteries were founded around 1000 years ago, such as this one that Falters as quite large complex located above the village of the same name. After all, formerly up to 400 monks have housed, and even today it should be around 150. Many of the prayer ceremonies are public, and it looked forward always as spectators, that's surprise this casual goes to: child monks wandering around during the prayers, without having any of the adults that disturb - on the contrary, looking at their faces they would really like to join. Such behaviour should encourage visitors of other faiths to think. From the mentioned mountain monasteries Lamayuru Leh is the easiest to achieve, because it is only 75 km away can be reached on good road which has however also resulted in there pretty touristy feel to. Nevertheless, it's worth, especially, if you stayed in Lamayuru and can experience the relaxed village living outside day or season of the stranger inlet. You should stray then quietly between the Klausen/Chiusa and prayer houses on the hill above the village or sit down, and enjoy the landscape and the views of the "lower village" from the top. I would there still like to...

  • If you are not a nature enthusiast you may be slightly disappointed since its basically a type of terrain you are looking at. Luckily we were all nature buffs and loved the area. The monastery is good...  more »
  • Lovely place. Once we reached the monastry it started snowing which looked just wow. Great place to have a days bike trip from Leh. Must visit.  more »
  • Enroute Srinagar-Leh, I would recommend night's halt at Lamayuru instead of Kargil. Lamayuru is the first place after Srinagar where one begins to experience the typical dry winds of Ladakh. Therez a comfortable hotel beside the Gompa but, I would certainly prefer a homestay in this village...there wasn't a single shop here then so be prepared with ur requirements in advance by purchasing them from Kargil. Lamayuru is one of the major starting points of trek towards Leh and its surroundings including Hemis. One of the best pics I took here was from the Gompa's roof facing the moonland-landscape. I was here for a night's halt on 6April2013 enroute my ride towards Leh.
  • A magic place. If you are looking for an outstanding scenery for your next photo tour - Lamayuru Gompa and its moon-land landscape might be your next destination. Make sure to get up early and catch the fist sun rays.
  • Beautiful and calm
  • The monastery is the oldest and one of the biggest in Ladakh. Very nice and interesting.

  • Notable places here. I spent the night at the convent (20 meters from the Gompa). The Indians there in the evenings, of course is a bit much, but comfortably admire the Valley of the Moon at sunset.
