Great view from this monastery. It's on top of a hill. They have steps to climb up if you want. Nice to go in the evening time.

As said before one monastery is more than enough as all are same. Sheet monastery may be avoided as there is nothing much out in this monastery compared to the other monasteries

One has to climb up very high to get to this monastery. The monastery is known for its huge gold Buddha stature which is supposedly second largest in Ladakh. The view from top is scenic which makes it worth visiting.

The monastery is quite high up. Avoid doing it on the second day as oxygen is rare the body is yet to acclimatise. The place is lovely.

This was a 15th century summer palace of Lehs royal family which also has a monastery.It involved lots of climbing steps & was tiresome.Still from scenic beauty point of view worth the visit
