Alchi, Unlike most of the villages in Ladakh, Alchi is located on lowland and is around 70km towards the west of Leh. Sitting graciously on the banks of the enchanting Indus River, this quaint village is among the must visit villages.
Home to the oldest monastery in Ladakh, the Alchi Monastery, which is ladakh’s most valuable heritage, this hamlet is very rich in vegetation, and probably green will be only visible colour while visiting this village. Holding high historical and cultural essence, this sleepy village on the banks of Indus River offers an array of places to visit within the Leh Ladakh. On the list, there are Sumstek Temple, Vairocana Temple, Lo Tsawa Temple, Mnajushree Temple, Stupas, and several others.
In addition to all these, the peace, serenity and calmness that exists in Alchi Village, makes it a relaxed and must-visit tourist destination in Ladakh. In short, it is the perfect destination to unravel the prismatic beauty of Mother Nature while lazing around, and doing nothing!
