Where to stay in Leh

With all its history, architecture, and scenery, you won't be surprised to learn that Leh possesses plenty of accommodations. A number of hotels with standard rooms sit on the fringes of the old town area, while a few more exclusive options lie a little farther out, occupying scenic positions with views of the town and the mountains.
