Ladakh: Day 3

Mountains & Monasteries itinerary:

"We'll spend the morning visiting the famous Thiksey and Hemis Buddhist monasteries with their colorful Tibetan-style paintings and 2-story sitting Buddha temples. After lunch we drive to Alchi, one of the oldest surviving monasteries from a period when Kashmir was at the center of Mahayana Buddhism. We'll have time to stroll around the surrounding area and take in some local culture."

Oh man, now Eric is going to be able to say things like, "Alchi? Heh! I spent a week there one night."
