While at Zanskar, you can opt to visit the Old castle of Zangla which has a nunnery and a far away village. Stongdey which is the second largest Monastery in Zanskar, Zongkhul Monastery which designed as a Nest, Karsha Nunnery. Phugtal Gompa which is also known as Cave monastery and requires a two day Trek from Anmo Village ( Will share the details in my next blog)
Make sure to carry few woollens along as it gets chilly in night. Carry the required lip-balm, cold creams, UV protected shades and Sunscreen with good SPF. Carry a postpaid BSNL as no other network works in the region.
In short, Zanskar Valley is a photographer's paradise and a nature lover's haven.
