Lamayuru Tourism & Travel Guide

Nestled in the western region of Ladakh, in the midst of barren mountains, Lamayuru is a culturally rich and enchanting village and an ideal pit stop on the Kargil-Leh route. The Lamayuru Monastery was built back in the 11th century and is now owned by the Red-Hat sect of Buddhism. A popular spot for tourists when in Ladakh, the revered monastery here is referred to as the Yung-Drung, which is home to more than 150 monks and houses some precious Buddhist artefacts, wall paintings, thangas, statues, carpets and an eye-popping 11-headed, 1000-eyed image of Chenzing. Also known as Moonland for its unique landscape resembling the moon's crater, Lamayuru is a must visit for its stunning beauty. There are popular treks leading to Lamayuru though they are slightly difficult for beginners, yet one can plan an exciting, adventurous holiday here.
