  • I was here in 2005 and when I came back in 2017, I discovered that the Gompa was winning a floor (there are under construction on the photo)! That changes a little silhouette... But no matter: the place is beautiful, especially very early in the morning, or at the sunset... The road was being refurbished in summer 2017: which means that Chemre will soon be l brought buses of tourists. You should take advantage while it's still quiet enough...

  • We had visited this small monastery located on a hilltop on our way to Changla Pass during our vacation in Ladakh. This monastery did not have many tourists compared to Thikse, Hemis and other famous ...  more »
  • The monastery of Chemre (17th century) is driven by the sect Drugpa, is about 40 km from Leh, on the road leading to Chang e for this, despite being outside the tourist circuit of the monasteries, can be easily visited. Is built on a rock next to a Green Valley. Inside statues and scriptures important. I recommend a visit inside the trip to Lake Pangong Tso or in combination with Tak Tok.
