THIKSEY MONASTERY

 

Thiksey is a village 8km upstream from the Indus River Camp.

A whole village belonging to the monastery stacks up a crumbling hill face. The monastery perches above and houses a two-story statue of the Maitreya Buddha sitting on a lotus. The monastery boasts extraordinary views across the Indus valley towards Leh and towards Manali. 

Inside is a medley of stupas, thangkas (Buddhist paintings), swords and ancient artefacts. Thiksey is one of the most holy constructions in Ladakh.  Each sunrise it hosts morning prayers in the inner monastery that tourists can experience up close. 

A particular treat is to walk down to its base through the steep monastery village - a community of silence, interrupted only by the scattering of young, orange-draped monks in the periphery. 

NIMMU

Built in 1991 by a Japanese Buddhist, Shanti Stupa is a pristine white domed stupa that sits over Leh. It offers the most remarkable views of Leh and the Indus valley below when the sun sets and the mountains and city changes colour.

SHANTI STUPA

 

Built in 1991 by a Japanese Buddhist, Shanti Stupa is a pristine white domed stupa that sits over Leh. It offers the most remarkable views of Leh and the Indus valley below when the sun sets and the mountains and city changes colour.
