  • Very scenic place. And of course, its unique architects are enough to spend two hours to get here. The road from Leh to Basgo - Lamayuru monastery is simply breathtaking, along Indus river
  • This monastery looks great as you drive down towards it on NH1. It's worth stopping to get some pics from the side of the road. Once you get closer the view is even better. Well worth the effort to visit.
