“beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2012

he famous Monastero Chemre Gompa can be seen from the intersection of Chang La and “Pangong Tso”. The barley fields along its way are breathtaking beauties, surely not to be missed. Photography enthusiasts and nature lovers throng this place throughout the year. The foreground of the monastery has rapeseed fields, which give it a pristine yellow hue against the white stupas. The slopes to the monastery are steep, perfect for those who would like to go mountaineering or trekking. It is said that the Monastero Chemre Gompa was built around the 17th century by the “Red Hats” who took inspiration from Hemis. Hemis till date considers the Monastero Chemre Gompa as its branch.
If you have the energy to climb the steps to this Gompa, then you must. It is a fascinating place to visit and the views from up there are amazing. Bring lot's of water as you will need it.
