Welcome to Chemrey & Takthog
Less popular with travellers than Thiksey but every bit as spectacular, Thekchhok Gompa (commonly known as Chemrey Monastery) sits high on a hillock above waving fields of ripening barley. It's the perfect Ladakhi postcard view. Around 3km further north, at the third of three junctions (Km10.4), a road leads towards the Wari La pass through Sakti, a charming village of gently terraced fields, waterlogged meadows and stone walls. The lane skirts Sakti’s shattered stone fortress ruins and several Buddhist monuments, the most famous of which is Takthog (Dakthok) Gompa.
