RHIDZONG


Location: 72-km West Of Leh, Ladakh Region, J&K
Main Attraction: The Rhidzong Gompa

Dates Back To: 17th Century

Blocking the head of a rocky ravine, the towering monastery of Rhidzong remains hidden off the main highway 72-km west of Leh . A wealthy monastery, presided over by Shas Rinpoche and linked to Sumur in the Nubra, the atmospheric Rhidzong is a relatively new Gompa dating from the 17th century.



The Du-Khang Enclosure
Inside the Du-khang, draped with Thangkas and exquisite but smoky murals, stands the central image of Shakyamuni flanked by Amitaus, the Buddha of long life, and by Avalokiteshvara, otherwise known as Chenrazig - the Buddha of compassion. The struggle up to the Gompa is further rewarded by the hospitality of the monks who are likely to offer one tea, and if one is lucky, one may get an invitation to their informal prayer meetings. With shafts of light filtering through darkened rooms and the throb of chanted prayers, a visit to Rhidzong takes you to the heart of Buddhist Ladakh .

 

HOW TO GET THERE

Road: If one doesn't have their own transport, coming from Leh one will need to get off any Khalsi bound bus at the appropriate junction and walk the rest of the way. Getting there is half the challenge as there is no public transport along the 5-km road leading up from the highway between Khalsi and Saspol.

WHERE TO STAY

Very basic accommodation is available at the Gompa, but strictly speaking, Rhidzong remains a day trip.
