Worth going place...well maintained and calm. There is a restaurant in the campus.. Bit of climbing steep stairs. Good view from the top worth capture.

Probably the nicest of the fortress/monasteries I have seen in South Asia. An easy ride from Leh, and very photogenic. Don’t miss this one.

An active monastery where Buddhist rituals can be witnessed. Rare and historic artefacts are on display. The architecture itself is breathtaking!

I really like this place. Feel peaceful and quite,you can just stay there and see the sunset! It’s incredible. 喜歡這個寺廟,安靜又感覺舒適,可以好好欣賞古樸的建築,坐在裡面靜靜感受一切,美好安詳。在這邊看到不可思議的日落。

This one of two amazing monasteries on Leh-Manali road. The other being Hemis monastery. As with most ancient monasteries Thikset is on top of a hill, is about 20 km from Leh. It is noted for its resemblance to the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet...More

the best view of the monastery is when u enter from the main road. make sure u stop and take some pictures there. the monastery is pretty standard tibetian style and it is a good stop, coming from thanglangla to leh.

take all the time you want to reach the top floor. But spend some good time at the top, just observing the silence. Find it the most peaceful place in Leh

A must visit in a Leh trip, this old but well maintained monastery presents the huge statue of Maitreya or the future Buddha which looks really magnificent & truly divine. The souvenir shop also has a good collection of presentation articles at a reasonable price.

Not more than 500 and that too with frequent landings between. Take your time in climbing the stairs and rest between taking a look around. The place is a must to see, dont be afraid of height.

You can directly bring your vehicle to the entrance gate of the monastery and buy ticket from there. It's a 12 storied monastery so you have to climb up,but take rest and lift the stairs.
