A place which you want to revisit even on the stake of your last wish.

Only place where you will find ice covered mountain sided by a flowing river which is followed by the sand dune, a place where you will experince a perfect *blend* of nature and peace which is well nourished by the presence of monastries. You might have heard of nature as mother till now, visit ladakh and nature will show its romantic side to you.

Nice place to visit

We visited the monastery at Diskit on the way to Leh back from Hunder village, Nubra valley. There is a giant statue of Buddha perched atop a hill. Below the statue is a small prayer room. The monastrey has a great background of mountains and the view of the valley below from the monastery is fabulous.

One the oldest monasteries in the Nubra region

It is, one the oldest monastery in the Nubra region. There is a very beautiful yet gruesome story associated with it too. It is about a conqueror who repeatedly tried to conquer to this monastery, but the monastery always had the better of it. Talk with the monks there for detailed info on the elaborate locks and keys used in the monasteries.
