The famous ruins of Basgo!
The ruins are the outcome of aggressive attacks by States of Central Asia. In the 15th century, Basgo used to be the centre of culture & politics. Back then, Ladakh was split into upper & lower ladakh until Baghan, a former king of Basgo brought back together Ladakh by defeating Leh's king.
Considering the history and landscape this place has, it's a surprise that you hardly find any tourists! Although visiting monasteries aren't number 1 on my list, the road to Basgo Monastery isn't one to miss out on. The entire stretch is a photographer's paradise!
