Photographer's Note

Diskit Monastery also known as Deskit Gompa or Diskit Gompa is the oldest and largest Buddhist monastery (gompa) in the Nubra Valley of Ladakh, northern India.

It belongs to the Gelugpa (Yellow Hat) sect of Tibetan Buddhism. It was founded in the 14th century.

From this distant POV, we can see the Gompa precariously perched on the edge of the barren mountain slope.
