    This looks so divine. I love monasteries and such bright colored ones are way too gorgeous.

    I’m an agnostic, but something about such places calms me down.

  4. Amazing! It makes the perfect location for a film or sitting to write a fiction story for it offers the inspiration.

    I have this altitude issue and can’t travel to snowy regions as my nose starts to bleed. Otherwise Legally Ladakh was one dream trip that I had in my mind. Glad that you could make it. Loved this picture story around the monastery. I love those bells. Have a few of them at home from our trip to Dharamshala.

      Oh no! Sorry to hear that Rekha. I am aware that the high altitude hits a lot of people. Thank you for stopping by. Such a long time and I am happy to see you around. I would love to visit Dharamshala once day πŸ™‚

  10. You have captured the essence of this place so beautifully Parul; I re-lived my trip there! Gorgeous pics – I am loving seeing and reading your Ladakh posts as my trip there is one of the closest to my heart!

    Quite the ancient and grand Lamayuru Monastery that you and VT saw. It still looks very much vibrant and standing tall today. It looks like quite a long and high road to reach it, and it must have been quite an exciting ride. Interesting to hear the significance behind the prayer wheels – the notion o circle and karma coming round is evident here πŸ™‚ Looking forward to seeing the other parts of your trip. Take care πŸ™‚

    Lovely pictures, Parul. The one I liked is featured image. The Buddhist prayer wheels. I wonder why all these monasteries were painted white? To stand out against the brown of barren mountains?

  15. Love the snaps Parul, especially the prayer wheels:) The place exudes so much calm. Can feel it through these stunning pics! πŸ™‚

    There’s something peaceful about seeing and visiting such places. Thanks for sharing bits of your travel. I know I won’t ever make the trip to Ladakh ( I have problems with high altitudes) so I’m grateful that I can share yours.
