Lamayuru to Alchi Ladakh trekking in India

This trekking tour takes place between Lamayuru and Alchi, and it is an excellent combination of ancient Buddhist monasteries and the natural beauty of Ladakh. This relatively short trek starts at the legendary Lamayuru Monastery, which lies in lower Ladakh.

Lamayuru was once a lake. It is believed that a monk who was taken aback by the natural beauty of the body of water moved it up the hills, leaving vacant the spot where the monastery stands today. This 10th-century Buddhist monastery is one of the oldest in the region. Alchi is a unique monastery built in a deep location, unlike most Buddhist monasteries built on high ridges. This three-storied monastery from the 11th century lies close to the banks of the Indus River.

Lamayuru is some 125 km to the west of Leh and is one of the most ancient and spectacular monasteries of Ladakh. The Gompa was remarkably built on sandstone by Rinchen Zangpo: dating back to the 11th century. Some of the best frescoes and murals representing the Kashmiri style of Buddhist iconography are inside this monastery.
