Lovely place. Once we reached the monastry it started snowing which looked just wow. Great place to have a days bike trip from Leh. Must visit.

One cannot say to have seen what a monastery in ladak is without Lamayur. The landscape makes it a unique place in the world. Best tour from Leh is with motorbike. Safe and easy road.

Must visit for those interested in History. Unique monastry and the moonland scapes are the two major attractions. Staff of the monastry are very helpful and it's a really pleasant place to be.
