Getting There & Away

To reach Thiksey from Leh, hop on a shared taxi-van to Choglamsar (₹20) and switch there to another eastbound vehicle (₹20, 20 minutes). Steps lead steeply up to the monastery, or those with their own transport can take the paved road that curves 1.5km up to the gompa main entrance.

A taxi from Leh costs around ₹800 return, including a stop at Shey.
