This is one of the famous Stupa in Ladakh. This is build in high attitude. Stupa is quite big and very beautiful. View from Stupa is too good. Painting on the stupa is very beautiful. Beautiful and religious place to visit.

Wow - one glimpse at the huge architecture and you would keep admiring it. I would highly recommend this place for some amazing views all around. This could be a long drive from your hotel though.

Nothing special about it if you have seen Stupa's before, but still worth a visit and it gives you a very special view of the city, since it is at a height.

This memorial has a couple of ways to get there. The easiest is to drive all the way and then just a small hike to the monument. the hard way is to go to the very end of Changspa Road and take the many steep steps. Both are rewarding. The views from the monument are very good, but those at... More

One of the first places to visit in Leh City before going anywhere else. Be sure to acclimatize for at least a day or two before going anywhere in Leh/Ladakh. This is a magical place. If not anything then just sit there and enjoy the calmness of your surroundings.
