The Worlds Most Astounding Monasteries - Ladakh

See video

The very ancient and most incredibly sited Buddhist Monasteries in the world have to be in Ladakh. Travels With Sheila has seen monasteries built into mountains and/or on rocks (for example Sumela Monastery in Turkey) but only ONE, in each country.

Ladakh will dazzle with one Monastery after another placed on top of rock outcroppings, built in valleys, overlooking towns or the Indus River, and dating from the 10th to 14th centuries. A person doesn't have to be Buddhist to enjoy the panoramas, rituals, festivals and beyond unbelievable work that went into building these monasteries. Visit Ladakh....
