Halfway between Kargil and Pudum, this 18th century mountaintop monastery looks less like a spiritual abode and more like a strategic military installment. About 30 monks live here, as do a greater number of donkeys, and what a place to live. There’s something wild about this remote and windblown place. The main prayer hall is the main highlight, with beautiful statues. There is a museum of art and artefacts. Not far away is the tiny village of Julidok.
