#37 of 104 in Things to do in Leh
Perched on a mountain ridge, Matho Gompa is Ladakh's only major monastery belonging to Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism. Set off the beaten tourist track, the monastery is worth a visit for the commanding views of the vast arid plains, deep gorge, and snowy mountains. Visit the tantric room on the top floor and the small museum featuring old documents, armor, art pieces, and other relics from the past belonging to ancient kings. If you plan your visit during the annual dance festival, you will get to see monks performing daredevil stunts and foretelling the future. A visit to Matho Gompa represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Leh trip itinerary planning website to plot your vacation.
