I really enjoyed my visit to this monastery. It is situated in a stunning location and the views alone are worth the trip to go there. It’s small with limit viewing but spectacular nonetheless.

A pleasant monastery to wonder around at your own pace. Great look outs of its crumbeling ruins. Close to the main road

The Basgo monastry is located at Nimu village about 32 KMs from Leh City towards Kargil. The place is situated on a hillock 2 Kms off the National Highway 1. Though a plethora of monastries exist in Leh the crowd which swarms them during peak tourist seasons kills the charm that exists in these historical sites. The Basgo monastry is an exception to the class commercialisation of Buddhist workshop places. The monastry encompasses Three Temple's one each for Lord Maitreya, Serzang and Cham Chung. They are believed to be various incarnations of Lord Buddha. The ruins of Cham Chung Temple and the serenity and cleanliness of the Basgo temple premises portrays the necessary evil that Tourism and publicity is for these ancient monuments. The temple is a must see for the shutter bugs as it presents a panoramic view of Nimu village. The NH 1 winding up the road is another image which can be clicked a million times. This temple is not on the popular tourist routes. To locate it one needs to start moving towards the road leading to Kargil. An enquiry with any localite of Village Nimu is the right way to locate it. The route to the temple is narrow and winding up a hillock. So the driver needs to be extremely cautious.

A beautiful secluded monastery which needs care. The landscape surrounding this place is matchless. There were no visitors when my family visited to this place.
