    We reached here around 6:30pm or so, when the sun had nearly set, and the lights on Shanti Stupa were on. It looked just too good in all the different colored lights! Also, the Leh city view from here...  more »

    The Peace Stupa is newly constructed, it is clean, easy to access and walk around and gives incredible views of Leh and the town of Changspa. There is a quaint rustic little cafe also but no loo's.  more »

    One of things you can't miss going to in Leh. You can the whole of Leh from this place. The statue of Buddha is breathtaking. Go with a local guide just to understand the history of the place and understand it's importance to Buddists
