A Himalayan trekker would often sing praises of the Thiksey Village region as the Thiksey monastery welcomes campers here. Thiksey is a popular campsite for Ladakh terrain hiking groups. We suggest you make your way atop the many hillocks and watch the green alfalfa pastures.

Don’t miss: Meeting the monks at Thiksey Monastery and a visit to the Leh Palace. Watch the sunset as you sip on a cuppa traditional Ladakhi butter tea and unwind!
