  • 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.
