This small village can have a lot to offer, if you look in the right place. Explore the Alchi Gompa, which is unlike any other monastery, heavily influence by the ancient Indian culture which is quite apparent in its architecture and paintings. Immerse yourself in the Buddhist spirituality and understand the true meaning of silence and peace. Concentrate on the Du-Khang and the Sum-Tsek if you are just briefly passing through. You can politely ask one of the monks to take you on a guided tour and brief you about all the customs and rituals of the culture.


Tourists come here to explore the typical Ladhaki village life. Walk around the streets, talk to the warm and friendly locals, experiment with the Ladakhi cuisine, meander through the apricot groves, get lost in the barley fields or take a walk along the riverside. This unexplored village is the perfect offbeat destination, with hidden surprises at every corner. Rafting and Camping are the favourite activities of all the tourists, and they strongly recommend experiencing at least one of these, if not both.


So put on your most comfy pair of sneakers (carry a jacket if it’s too windy), and head out to create your own adventures and experiences in this remote land. Don’t forget your camera!
