One of the least known Buddhist kingdoms of the western Himalayan with a main elevation of 12000 feet, Zanskar valley is bounded by Zanskar mountain complex on north to the west and south west by the greater Himalayan range and to the east by the Rupshu Plateau.

        Owing to its geographically inaccessibility this land locked valley has nurtured one of the last surviving cultural entity of Tibetan Lamaism. The ancient yet active monastic establishments are the centers of the spiritual and social activities. These monasteries are treasure of priceless icons, frescos, scrolls and painting.
