One of the oldest monasteries in Ladakh. The place has an aura about itself. The landscape around the monastery is moonscape like. The views from the monastery are just great. There is an entry fee of Rs 50/- for Indian nationals. There is a restaurant adjoin the monastery where one can relish freshly made eats.
Very old monastry, cool place must visit on the way to leh
