Must visit when going to Nubra, the most attractive part about this monastery is their giant statue of Maitriya buddha overlooking nubra valley and even the monastery is worth visiting with lots of artefacts about tibetab buddhism.

We visited this scenic monastery at Diskit, on our way to Nubra Valley. They have this huge Buddha statue, which is very beautiful. The Buddha can be seen from kilometres away. Monastery is located at very odd place Great view of nubra valley from here.
