We then reach Diskit Monastery.
We got some sleep and woke up a little late. Today all we had to head back to Leh. The highlight of the day was the visit to Diskit Monastery where we meditated and enjoyed the beauty around us.
The first place we visited was the Diskit monastery, which has this huge statue of a female deity called Jampa Buddha behind which is the monastery.
The Diskit monastery was our next stop, the largest and the oldest surviving monastery in Nubra valley. Promoting and protecting the entire valley, a statue of Buddha is surmounted on a hilltop, facing the Shyok River towards Pakistan. I was lost gazing at the maze-like structure of Diskit monastery, when a kid, with deep blue eyes and a maroon sweater, came and sat next to me. His appearance was largely indistinguishable from his fellow mates- same red robe they wrap, same little possessions they have and same pale smiles they wear on their innocent faces.
