Rangdum

At a distance of about 160 km from Kargil lies the Rangdum monastery. Located at an altitude of 3,657 meters, on the top of the mountain outcropping of rocks, the monastery structure gives more of an impression of an ancient fort that towers and safeguards the valley. The main highlight of the monastery is its central prayer hall with an amazing collection of Tibetan and other artifacts. A home to 40 monks, the monastery is an interesting place to pay a visit.
