Our third stop for the day was the magical “Moonland or Lamayuru”. The smooth drive on the Srinagar Leh Highway makes it very easy to reach this place. It took us around 4 hours to reach lamayuru. We reached around lunch time. It was drizzling and the weather was just Perfect! There is an entry fee of Rs. 20 and the lunch time is from 1.00 pm to 1.30 pm. The monastery is peaceful and the lamas happily share their knowledge with you. Lavi was very keen on knowing about the scriptures.
While we were at Lamayuru I was eagerly looking to visit the point from where you get the best view of the moonland. In that quest we found a new place, to which our driver said only few locals know about it. The view from the place was Surreal! It seemed as if we have reached an alien land. We were the only people there and the solitude that place brought in was mystical. It was drizzling, the wind was strong and we spent almost 30 minutes there. Mehul bhai, Disha and our driver even took a short walk around the place before we departed for our next stop.
