When it comes to religion, Buddhism rules the roost in Lachen. On a regular day, you can be lucky enough to bump into some lovingly-old, grin-bearing monks, who still light wax lamps in the monasteries around. If visiting a few religious places is also in your itinerary, try checking out these options.


  • Lachung Monastery

    Sitting proudly at an altitude of 3000 metres, Lachung Monastery also serves as the starting point for Green Lake trekking trail. A quick trip to this place will bring you face to face with the much-revered Guru Padmasambhava's idol. Lachung is perfect to make a wish or two, with a beautiful prayer-wheel right at its entrance.

  • Labrang Monastery

    This is one of the oldest of all monasteries in the entire region. If you have a thing for the old-world charm, you just can't do without a visit to this one. Quite well-maintained for its age, Labrang monastery is a major point of interest for travelers, who wish to embark on a religious pursuit. Apart from the Buddhism angle, it also serves as a fine example of art, culture and the architecture of an era long gone.

  • Baba Harbhajan Singh Memorial Temple

    More than a temple, it's a shrine built in the memory of Indian Army
