Things To do in Lamayuru


Lamayuru, located on the Leh-Kargil road, is a small village in Ladakh that has earned the nickname 'Moonland' due to its unique and surreal landscape. It is home to one of the oldest and largest monasteries in Ladakh, and its main attraction is the breathtaking view of moon-like landscapes carved into the mountains. The area was once the site of a large lake, which has since dried up, leaving behind otherworldly protrusions that resemble the surface of the moon. Visitors from around the world come to this peaceful destination to immerse themselves in its stunning beauty. The area is particularly renowned for its extraordinary sight on a full moon night, making it an ideal stopover on the Kargil-Leh route.
