Those visiting Alchi can take a tour of all the places it has to offer in around two days! Alchi's isolation from the world has helped itself to preserve its Indo-Tibetan culture to a large extent. The village, however, is quite remote. Big farms of apricots and apples are seen in and around the area. Many tourists visit these farms and take a look around, basking in the sun, and enjoying the weather. One of the best things about Alchi is that the background in which the village has settled is right beside the Indus River, making this little village exquisite. Tourists can visit the following monasteries which also lie in an around Alchi.
Most interestingly, the state of Jammu and Kashmir is known for its Mughal buildings and heritage. One may find it surprising that not all of this state is full of Mughal artefacts and places. Alchi reflects the Indo-Himalayan culture and what it was like before the times of Mughals. The spread of Buddhism can be traced from places like Alchi. The numerous beautiful monasteries in and around Alchi speak of Buddhism in exquisite detail. The walls, the carvings, the paintings, the inscriptions, the statues, the terrain, all speak of a great Buddhist culture. One willing to learn more about the Indo-Himalayan culture should definitely see this place, for there is just so much to learn!
