  • It is perhaps the oldest monastry in leh known for the artifacts and other monk stuff. They are closed for lunch so avoid going that time 2 to 3 
  • Lamayuru is also called the Moonland in Leh-Ladakh because of its topography which resembles the moon's surface. There used to be a big lake here many years back and as the lake dried up, the crater w...  read more »
  • View of the rock from the arch stayed through the gray Cliff Road about 2 hours by car is a pale cream appears. The sign of the MOON LAND. A different texture and color of the surrounding mountain scenery is indeed fantastic. Proceed from there for a while, and on the slopes of Mt. Gompa and settlements in most of the Valley comes into view. Ramayurgompa is relatively new. Visited the priest's ritual in the morning.

  • 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
