Not too far from Leh, Ladakh, this monastery is interesting architecturally as it resembles Potala Palace in Tibet. It is also a Tibetan Buddhist monastery with active monk community, including quite young boys. It is quite a climb to the top (many stairs) but worth it. There are several different temples and prayer rooms you can go in and unlike a lot of monasteries, they did not seem to limit photography inside. The views from the top to the surrounding mountains and valleys are stunning. Although we didn't stay here, it was interesting to learn that you could: they have a guest house and restaurant. However, we were just on a day trip from Leh where we were staying to acclimitize for higher elevation travel.

A great way to slowly enter the high altitude world and prepare yourself for some solitude. The monastery is beautiful and the monks welcome you into their prayer services, letting you experience their peace.

I visited Thiksey in 1988 and it was very interesting then but a little run down. It has now be renovated and is even a better place to visit. Still has the great views of the Leh Valley and excellent art...both statues and wall paintings.
