    Stop At: Likir Monastery, Likir, Leh 194101 India

    Likir Monastery or Likir Gompa is a Buddhist monastery in Ladakh, Northern India. It is located at 3700m elevation, approximately 52 kilometres in the west of Leh.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Alchi Monastary, South Bank of the Indus River 67 kms west of Leh, Alchi India

    Alchi Monastery or Alchi Gompa (monastery and temple complex) lies about 65 km from Leh on the banks of the Indus River. Alchi is regarded as one of the most important Buddhist centres in Ladakh and also as one of the monastic jewels of Ladakh. The Alchi Monastery dates back to nearly one thousand years and so the effect of the Tibetan influence can be seen in the local culture. There are five shrines in the Choskor Temple Complex which has some splendid wall paintings. One of its walls features thousands of miniature sized pictures of the Buddha. Three large sized images made of clay painted brightly are its focal attraction. No longer an active religious centre, it is looked after by monks from the Likir Monastery. Since the last 500 years, religion is not practiced in the Alchi Monastery. Over a period of time the Yellow Hat sect (Gelugpa) shifted their religious activities to another place which is 30 kms away, known as Likir. The surroundings of Alchi Gompa offers a very friendly atmosphere for visitors as there are small restaurants, tea stalls and souvenir shops welcoming tourists.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Magnetic Hill, Leh-Kargil-Srinagar national highway, Leh 194101 India

    Magnetic hill is positioned on the Leh-Kargil-Srinagar national highway, about 30 km from Leh, it is famously known as the Gravity Hill. The hill possesses magnetic properties strong enough to pull heavy vehicles uphill. Because of the anti-gravity mechanisms the site has become a popular tourist attraction.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Gurdwara Pathar Sahib, Leh-Kargil Road Ropar, Leh 194101 India

    Gurudwara Pathar Sahib, most revered place where Guru Nanak Dev ji, founder of the Sikh religion is believed to have conquered a demon. Legend has it that once Guru Nakak ji was meditating at this place and a demon had thrown a big rock to obstruct his prayers but the boulder turned into soft wax that failed to harm him, seeing this the demon asked for penance for his deed and Guru Nanak ji forgave him. The boulder with the imprint of the body of Guru Nanak Dev and the footprint of the demon is on display in Gurdwara Pathar Sahib. Albeit, the area is known majorly for Buddhism but Gurudwara Pathar Sahib is equally worshipped by anyone who visits this place. It is maintained by the Indian Army.
