Lamayuru is one of the most famous and spectacular gompas in Ladakh, perched on a steep cliff overlooking a strange and alien land formation called ‘moon landscape’.

The first Lamayuru monastery was built at the end of the 10th century. In its heyday up to 400 monks lived in the monastery but today there are only 20 to 30 left. You can visit here the newly renovated prayer hall.
