Last day: Walking to the Nezer Gompa

On our last day in Ladakh we went on another walk.  Henri, a Frenchman who had been staying at Silver Cloud, gave us a map of walks he had done further up the valley.  His description of the walks inspired us to try to walk as far as the Nezer Gompa.  The day was sunny and bright and as far as possible we wanted to stay among greenery.  The first place we came to was a lovely Buddhist shrine.

Nezer Gompa itself was through a small village.  It was high up and on the way the pilgrims had piled up rocks.  There was a great view over the surrounding countryside.

On our last evening we sat on our balcony and watched the sun go down behind the mountains.  The Shanti Stupa can just be seen as a silhouette on the horizon.
