Namgyal Tsemo Gompa, Leh

4.4
Perched on a hilltop above the old town and the royal palace, Namgyal Tsemo Gompa offers views of the lush valley and the barren mountains. To reach it, you'll need to follow a dusty path that starts at Leh Palace and then climb a long flight of zigzag steps. The prayer room houses a larger-than-life statue of Buddha, and the interior walls of the gompa are decorated with colorful frescoes.

  • The monastery of the peak, being at 3500 slm, we climbed not on foot but by taxi, comfortably, from above a magnificent view of the Leh valley. It was closed so we didn't see the inside.

  • Although the climbing path is a bit complicated (even more so if you make the wrong way and end up climbing as it happened to us), it is worth the climb. The views it offers of the valley are mind-blowing and at the highest point is a small temple dedicated to Avalokiteshvara, bodhisattva of Compassion and eternal protector of Tibet. Place of tranquility and essential peace on the visit to Ladakh
