A quaint village in the Leh- Kargil route, Lamayuru is one of the most favorite locations for tourists visiting Ladakh. It is best known for its monastery, which is a peculiarly large construction. Nevertheless, the surreal landscape of Lamayuru also makes it special. There is a dried-up lake with unique protrusions, unlike anything that you have seen before. Also, the green beautiful valley with arid mountain ranges in the backdrop gives it an otherworldly appearance. Hence the place is often referred to as the Moonland of Ladakh. Tourists who come to visit the monastery are often enthralled by the unsung beauty of the land. Many take a halt at the place to enjoy the scenic beauty and melt away in its serene atmosphere.
