One of the highest and beautiful monastries in India, this place will make you travel back in time! Beware, you might fall in love with the Buddhist culture. 

Devi Nair shares her experience, "Located at an altitude of about 11,800 ft in the Indus Valley, it is a huge complex with old Buddhist art such as beautiful thangkas, wall paintings and swords. The statue of Maitreya is 15 metres high. The Wheel of Life, the handwritten and painted books, goddess Tara with her 21 images and the many murals of the deity Mahakala are truly beautiful. The vast Indus valley is seen in all it's grandeur from the top of the monastery."
