Choglamsar at an altitude of about 3,235 meters is located to the south east of Leh. The village on the right bank of the Indus River is about eight kilometers from Leh. This Tibetan refugee settlement is a main center of Tibetan Buddhism, studies and cultures.
The word Choglamsar means a place from where several paths lead to Leh town.
Since the village is known for Ladakhi table (chokse), it is also called Choklsel, a place of chokses.
The settlement sprawling along the Indus River boasts multiple gonpas. But one on the hill is visible from everywhere. This “landmark” gonpa doubles as a vantage point that affords views worth a number of interesting frames.
Today’s photo story Dun Desert of Choglamsar in Ladakh showcases some of these views and the gonpa.
