  • The place see seen on the horizon & as you go near you realize how big the statue it sits on a small hill surrounded by mountains. A small ghat kinda section leads you there. Once on the TOP its breath taking view on the valley. The statue itself is great to look at, a sense of calmness takes over & one automatically surrenders to the nature around. I had travelled there in Jun 2018 on my motorcycle. The trust of Gompa have a small hotel too and its decent & even food is good.
  • Amazing place. You will get the most peaceful experience here. The roads are well developed to reach there. Ample parking space. You can see the large statue from the distance as well. It's a paradise for the photographers. You can visit the nubra valley from here on. Must visit place in your Ladakh journey.
