Just 20 km from Leh, you can visit the Phyang monastery which has a community of about 90 monks. A few kilometres further on the Leh-Srinagar Road, you reach the mysterious Magnetic Hill where you can see a vehicle with engine turned off and in neutral gear starting moving uphill against gravity…Strong magnetic force from the hill or optical illusion? See it and make your own conclusion! The next stop is one of the most popular photo spots in Ladakh, the spectacular vantage point over Sangam, the confluence of Indus and Zanskar rivers. Then, visit the Alchi monastery which was founded in the 11th century. The gompa complex enshrines some of the best-preserved murals and sculptures in Ladakh. From Alchi, stop by Ulley Tokpo on your way west to Lamayuru. Situated 116 km west of Leh along the route to Srinagar, Lamayuru is a postcard-perfect village with its medieval gompa rising above the whitewashed Ladakhi houses. The village is located the bottom of a dried lake and the unique landscape in this area is called “Moonland”. In Lamayuru, you could stay in a homestay, a wonderful opportunity to stay with a local family and discover the Ladakhi culture and food. Ask your driver to show you the best homestays.

The Lamayuru monastery (also known as Yungdrung gompa) is famous for its rich collection of thangkas and wall paintings. It is said that the Indian scholar Naropa meditated for several years in the small cave near the Dukhang. From Lamayuru, head back east, stopping at the secluded Rizong monastery where 40 monks of the Gelugpa order reside, following a strict Buddhist discipline. A few kilometres further, on the right bank of the Indus river, the Likir monastery dominates the village surrounded by barley fields. It is famous for its gigantic 22m-tall statue of the Future Buddha located just next to the main building. Then, stop at Gurdwara Pathar Sahib, a small shrine devoted to Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism. Just before reaching Leh, visit the Spituk monastery which has a temple entirely dedicated to Tara (also known as Dolma in Tibetan Buddhism), the protector of Tibet.
