Mulbekh Monastery, Kargil

#2 of 15 in Things to do in Kargil
Mulbekh in Jammu & Kashmir is a small village on Srinagar-Leh highway yet very beautiful, some 38 kilometers from Kargil towards east and 190 kilometers to reach Leh. The village resembles as it is sitting on the lap of barren mountains with some green toppings.

There are also 3-4 monasteries and the surrounding nature is just beautiful. The Chamba statue here is quite big and magnificent, so the Mulbekh Monastery. The thing to notice about the place is, if you are ascending to Leh from Srinagar side you will feel the presence of Buddhism from here only.

This scenic village derived its name from a huge mountain rock of silver colour at the centre of village(Mul=silver;Dak=Mountain). The beautiful hills and the small cultivated fields that dot the landscape presents a pretty picture of nature’s splendor at work.
