Lamayuru to Alchi Trekking
This is one of the easier treks in Ladakh
and passes through less visited trails and remote Ladakhi Villages. The altitudes are lower than most other treks in Ladakh and some of the prominent monasteries of Central Ladakh can be visited alongside
Lamayuru is one of the oldest Gompas/Monasteries in Ladakh and has been a popular destination for explorers since many centuries. It is believed to be a pre Buddhism Shrine of the lost Bon Po religion. The spectacular Gompa at Alchi was abandoned centuries ago but has been lovingly maintained by the Monks of Likir Gompa.
