  • Skurbuchan Khar


Skurbuchan is a beautiful and a scenic village located in Khaltse Tehsil in Leh‐Ladakh District  towards north of India. The village is towards the west of Leh at a distance of 65.5 kilometres.  The tower‐like tall structure of Skurbuchan Khar, the Monastery and various stupas that dot the  landscape are also an interesting tourist destination along with the villages of Dha and Hanu.  

For many years, the deteriorating and crumbling structure of the Skurbuchan Khar and its ancillary buildings have been a subject of concern and focus of conservation efforts of both the community and the interdisciplinary specialist team of the Achi Association. The conservation work was initiated by a group of young heritage promoters comprising trained young professionals and monks.  The village and monastic community strongly support the project, and a mission has been envisaged to safeguard one of the most significant landmarks of Skurbuchan and its surrounding villages.
