The Lamayuru Alchi trek is one of the popular treks in the Ladakh region that takes you on a spectacular journey to the earliest surviving monasteries dating back to the 10th – 11th century.
The Ladakh region is often dubbed as the ‘land of high mountain passes and monks’, as the topography brings forth several ancient trading routes that used to connect Ladakh, India, with Tibet. It influenced the Tibetan sects to set up their settlements and over the year the Ladakh region started to reflect the traditional colours of Buddhism and thus ramping up monasteries exposing the unique Tibetan architectural style. From the pious Lamayuru Alchi trek one can mull over the ancient indo – Tibetan culture flaming from the collection of various ancient manuscripts, chortens and paintings. The journey allows you to step into the Lamayuru monastery, which is one of the oldest monasteries in the region, and the popular Alchi monastery, which is a monastic complex of temples in Alchi village and administered by Likir monastery. Nonetheless, along with the cultural diorama, the trek crossing through several high altitude mountain passes like the Prinkiti La 3,720 meters, Penji La at 3,400 meters, Konski La 4,950 meters and Stakspi La and remote villages offers a vivid view of the farfetched meadows and valleys.
