On the Kargil-Leh road, 126 km from Leh. Altitude: 3,390 m. Amidst spectacular scenery, is the village of Lamayuru, one of the most beautiful in Ladakh, and the Yung Drung Tharpa Ling Gompa, perched on rocks on the mountainside. Unfortunately, the recent constructions in the surrounding area hinder somewhat the contemplation of its external beauty. From the top of the gompa, and on the road to Leh, one can admire Moonland, a sumptuous rock formation, sculpted in the Himalayas, evoking a lunar landscape. Lamayuru is a good starting point for treks in the area and a pleasant stopover on the road between Kargil and Leh.
