It pulls you backward in to a quieter time and place that is both un-wanting and arresting. New roads end and take you down old roads, which in turn give way to trails, and then nothing at all. It’s in those places that the full beauty unfolds, awakened by its quiet vastness. Stakna Gompa rises above the Indus Valley dwarfed by the mountains of the Leh District, Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir State, Northern India. The monastery was founded in the 16th century and was named ‘Stakna’, translated as ‘Tiger’s Nose’ because of the shape of the hill upon which it was built. It was founded by a Bhutanese monk and scholar, Chosje Jamyang Palkar. // From mountain tops to seacoasts, India is filled with breathtaking landscapes, amazing wildlife, and untamed experiences you’ll never forget.
