There are so many exciting and inspirational views but this whole area is not to be missed. It is wild and rugged but breathing taking.

Best Spot in this World. Dont go there if you are on a short time holiday. You have to stay long, best time is the winter time, you have to walk over the frozen zanskar River, yes, do it once in your life, it is important to visit the last remote area in the wintertime, blue sky, the nature and...

I have never seen such colorful rocky hills as I did during the 120 KM drive to he Lomayuru Monastry from Leh. The colors vary form deep pink, to green to dark brown to clay like light muddy yellow. A feast for the eyes and photographers.

If your idea of travelling is just comfortable hotel stays and taxi tours, this place is probably not for you. This place is known for its mesmerising backdrops, untouched beauty, glaciers, enigmatic mountains and daunting trekking tours. The accommodation is seldom comfortable and you might not even get basic facilities like electricity and hot water for most of the day.... More

The Zanskar valley is a must visit on your trip to Leh. Due to its relatively low profile, there's less crowd here and is thus less spoilt by the civilization. A bike ride to the paths less taken really opens your heart and mind and fills it with wonder!

Zanskar valley is very popular for trekking and famous among foreigners for long treks. You need to trek from Sangam to Zanskar Valley. It is supposed to be beautiful valley with nature wonders. You will be surprised to see old heritage buildings of Gompas and monasteries. Not much of facilities are available at this place.

I went to this Mesmerising Valley on 25th April 2016 and enjoyed a lot, the whole journey throughout the day was absolutely stunning, the roads are well laid and maintained by BRO (Border Road Organisation), I read a wonderful saying mentioned in a BRO board, "God created Ladakh and we connect it to the rest of the World" - BRO....

It is amazing how these beautiful places were made and these monasteries were created in such adverse climate and geographical conditions! Very beautiful and a great view from up there too! If you love good architecture and history, you must visit this place!
