Moon Land Ladakh is in a small village called Lamayuru , but an ideal place to take a break from the journey from Kargil to Leh. Home of one of the oldest Lamayuru monasteries in Ladakh, legends believe that this place was once a lake that dried up. Remains on top of the Leh tourism charts, this tiny village has more to offer than it meets your eyes.
Lamayuru is popular for its ‘lunar’ landscape and monastery. Interestingly, this quaint little village is promoted as ‘moonscape’ for tourists; reason being its incredible yet odd geographical formations.
