  • Leh is at over 11,500 feet above sea level and adjusting to the altitude is a problem especially if you fly straight into town. Here is a tip that has always worked for me. On the day of your arrival,...  more »
  • 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.

  • Here we can get Breath taking view of leh city and leh palce. And the divine ambience is awesome.
  • The milky white stupa is prominent local sight at Leh. Enjoy the panaromic view of the Leh city from here.
  • The Shanti stupa at Leh is situated atop a hill and was visible even from our Hotel window. The Stupa is said to have been built around 1991. The road leading to the Stupa is quite steep. Once we are there we get a panoramic view of the town of Leh. There is an old prayer chamber beneath the Stupa and a newer prayer hall above with a large statue of Buddha. Beautiful artwork and paintings have been done on the circular wall of the Stupa.
  • Must visit this place to see Panoramic view of the Leh city, in addition they have put up informative cards about famous places around in respective directions. You can see the snow capped mountains around as well as road leading to Khardung-la can also be seen from here.
  • The way uptop leaves you breathless... but the pain is worth the serenity!!! The view uptop is just beautiful! 😊 😍
