  • Alchi was so so beautiful. We loved it, was a day trip from leh. Monastery was peaceful, views were stunning. The road to Alchi is very well developed. Restaurants were great there. And do try the apricot juice. It's become a favorite now.
  • A must visit a beautiful monastery. Not too elaborate like The other ones in Ladhak but a must visit nonetheless....🤘
