Apati Buddha

in Kargil

The Yurbaltak Buddha figure makes an appealing half-day trip from Kargil. It's the smallest and most eroded of the region's Buddha statues but getting here is half the fun. Access is via a short, scenic walk from the end of the road on a stone-paved path through the traditional homes of Apati village. A taxi from Kargil costs ₹1500 return.
