By far my favorite monastery. We visited many of the most famous around Leh. Chemre had fewer tourists, was quieter and the paintings were just as fabulous.

What a wonderful sight this is slightly off the main road, but well worth the detour. In great condition and a great photo opportunity if you like old buildings.

Only got to see this stunning monastery complex from the road on the way to Pangong Tso. But it looked interesting. If you have your own transport then may be worth looking at it, as it's definitely one of the less visited places.

This is monastery is located at the top of small hill and the route of access to reach by walk only and its nearly half an hour. Nice and excellently organized monastery.

This was very special as when I heard the music I thought it was coming from a speaker. Then I noticed the monks almost hidden in the corner of the courtyard.

Located at isolated place of Leh. Monastery is nothing different from other monasteries. Under renovation/construction till June 2016. Can be avoided if you are short of time and visited most of other monasteries of Leh. Located on the hilltop as other monasteries.

Chemrey or Chemdey as it is called locally, seems uninhabited; or rather its not active like Hemis. But it is really beautiful and I liked it best. Very scenic views, and isolated feel that the monasteries of bygone days must have had.
