  • U will find the real meaning of peace here. Also a best spot to get full panorama of the city
  • Very nice and peaceful place. The whole expanse of the city is visible from here. breathtaking views. seeing the sunset from here is highly recommended.
  • It's beautiful place. Must go. View from top is awesome. Entry after 9 PM is not allowed.
  • 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
  • A place in Leh which I would advise people to cover on day 2 of your itinerary, reason being it would help you get acclimatized with the weather Conditions and prepare you for the upcoming days. The view from the top is breathtakingly beautiful and the wind is chilling. Expect more chilling weather when you go to high altitude regions like Pangong and Khardung La pass.
