monastery is situated 15km away from Leh. It was once an ancient summer palace for the Kings of
Ladakh, and there are many Stupas and Temples (Gompas) built around it. The Shey Gompa was built
by Deldan Namgyal in the 17th century. Its biggest attraction is the 12m high statue of
Shakyamuni Buddha, which is inside the Dresthang Gompa. Close to here lies the Thiksey Gompa,
which is 17km away from Leh and is thought of as one of the most beautiful monasteries in
Ladakh. We then visit the Hemis monastery, 45km south of Leh. This is one of the most well-known
and is amongst the biggest monasteries of Ladakh. It was founded at the beginning of the 17th
century for the Drukpa order. The countryside is amazing as the monastery is located in a

with prayers. We return to Leh overnight.

and pack-horses. The next part of our trek follows the narrow path on the right bank of the
Zanskar River. Red-painted Chortens (Buddhist buildings) are all along our way, showing us the
existence of their communication channels. Our path forks off towards the South-East, heading

A steep climb leads us to the high plains of Nimaling and we continue gaining altitude until we
reach our campsite at 4600m. Passing by the north side of the Kang Yatze, we can admire the
panoramic view of the surrounding landscapes.
