  • The monastery of Chemre (17th century) is driven by the sect Drugpa, is about 40 km from Leh, on the road leading to Chang e for this, despite being outside the tourist circuit of the monasteries, can be easily visited. Is built on a rock next to a Green Valley. Inside statues and scriptures important. I recommend a visit inside the trip to Lake Pangong Tso or in combination with Tak Tok.

  • By far my favorite monastery. We visited many of the most famous around Leh. Chemre had fewer tourists, was quieter and the paintings were just as fabulous.  more »
  • What a wonderful sight this is slightly off the main road, but well worth the detour. In great condition and a great photo opportunity if you like old buildings.  more »

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. Take a look at the northern suburbs for some of the most budget-friendly options, with the agricultural districts of Changspa and Karzoo offering a wealth of guesthouses surrounded by scenic agricultural fields.
