Twenty-six kilometers from Leh. The Matho Gompa (entrance: Rs. 50) dates from the 16th century. It is the only monastery of the Sakyapa Current in Ladakh. About sixty monks reside in this gompa which dominates the Indus valley. The small dark room on the top floor is worth a visit: the floor is covered with barley seeds and the walls bear various weapons. Next to it is a room containing ancient objects related to the monastery. Renovation work is under way, particularly on the thangkas, and a museum is planned.
