Renowned as the oldest Buddhist learning centre in Ladakh, Alchi Monastery is located 70 km from Leh in Jammu and Kashmir in north India on the bank of Indus River. A national heritage site, it is distinct from other monasteries in Ladakh as it is situated on flat ground unlike others which are located on hilltops. The foundation of the monastery was laid by Tibetan translator Rinchen Zangpo in the middle of 12th century.
No documents testifying to Alchi’s history exist. The only thing that tells the history is the ancient monuments and paintings of the monastery. Archaeological Survey of India is helping preserve the monastery. Villagers of Alchi are quite traditional and staunch believers in their culture, so that makes the village a cultural site too. .

Hari kedua di Ladakh, aku pergi ke Alchi dan Liker monastery. Sebenernya ini gak ada di itin. Aku pergi ke sini karena diajakin temen yg ketemu di hostel. Kasian jg kalo dia pergi sendirian, mahal. Haha. Karena jadinya pergi bertiga, masing-masing bayar 900-an rupee (masih mahal)

Harga tur di sini emang mahal-mahal. Kenapa? Hmm mungkin karena jaraknya yang jauh-jauh dan harga bensin yg mahal juga. Kalau ga salah 1L bensin di sini harganya 20rb-an
