Lamayuru – pravljični budistični samostan

Majhna vasica Lamayuru, ki leži na nadmorski višini 3500 metrov, je bila v našem primeru logična izbira za postanek na dolgi vožnji med vasicami ljudstva Drokpa in glavnim mestom Leh. Lamayuru, ki leži ob glavni cesti, ki povezuje Ladakh z nižje ležečim Kašmirjem, bi bila verjetno brez glavne atrakcije, samostana Lamayuru, le še ena od zaprašenih vasic na tej precej obljudeni poti. Po kar naporni poti smo se tako popoldan namestili v praznem hotelu z idiličnim pogledom na samostan, si privoščili še eno zelo okusno kosilo, tudi takrat na žalost brez mrzlega piva. 🙂 Po njem pa smo se z nasmeški na obrazih odpravili na okoliške vršace in iskali tisti popoln pogled na ta pravljični samostan. Če bi moral med vsemi budističnimi samostani, ki smo jih obiskali v treh tednih izbrati tistega, ki je bil meni osebno nekaj posebnega, bi bil to verjetno prav Lamayuru.

The small village of Lamayuru, located at an altitude of 3,500 meters above sea level, was in our case a logical choice for an overnight stop on a long drive between the villages of the Drokpa people and the capital of Leh. Lamayuru, that lies on the main road linking Ladakh with the lower Kashmir region, would probably be without the main attraction – the Lamayuru Monastery, just one more dusty village on this well known road. After driving from Dha Hanu village, we decided to stay overnight in a hotel with a great view towards the monastery. The lunch in the hotel was again very delicious, but unfortunately there was no beer again. 🙂 After that we went straight to the hills around Lamayuru, searching for the best view of the village and the monastery. And if you ask me what monastery you must not miss during your trip to Ladakh – probably I would say the one in Lamayuru – it really is something special.
