  • Suggested Activity #1 Shanti Stupa

    It is a Buddhist white domed stupa in Leh district, Shanti Stupa was built by a Japanese Buddhist monk Gyomyo Nakamura and was enshrined by the 14th Dalai Lama himself. The stupa holds the relics of the Buddha at its base, and provides a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape which is the best during dawn and dusk. The stupa is considered to be a major tourist attraction in Leh; it is located at an altitude of 4,267 meters above sea level and is at a short distance of 5 kilometres by road. One can alternatively reach the stupa by climbing 500 steps from the city of Leh.

  • Suggested Activity #2 Leh Palace

    Built in 1553 AD, the 19 stories high Leh Palace was built on a hilltop and still looks imposing from the town; apparently it was one of the tallest buildings in the world during that time. It was the residence of the royal family till the mid-19th century when the Dogra forces attacked Ladakh and the royal family moved to the Stok palace thus abandoning the fort. Although in ruins now, the palace is now being restored by the Archaeological survey of India. The palace also has a museum which holds a rich collection of jewellery, ornaments, ceremonial dresses and crowns. The paintings in the museum are more than 450 years old Chinese thangka paintings.

  • Suggested Activity #3 Namgyal Tsempo Monastery

    Situated at the backdrop of the aforementioned Leh palace, Namgyal Tsempo Monastery was founded in 1430, and provides a panoramic view of the surrounding plains and especially the Indus River and the snow-capped peaks of the Zanskar mountain range. The view of Leh from the gompa is a special attraction as it changes with the change in light, this making it a breathtaking sight to gaze at. The monastery contains age old Buddhist manuscripts; however the main attraction of this monastery is the 3 stories high, golden statue of Maitreya Buddha.

  • Suggested Activity #4 Khardung La or Khardung Pass

    Khardung La or Khardung Pass is situated 40 kilometres from Leh, and is considered the highest motor able pass in the world (disputed by many modern measurements). Laying at an altitude of 5,602 meters above sea level the pass was built in 1976 and opened to motor vehicles in 1988. The pass is also used to carry military supplies to the notoriously famous Siachen glacier and has been a constant challenge destination for adventurers and bikers all around the world. The foreign tourists need to obtain a special permit to visit this spot.
