  • This is a very old Palace. It is not well maintained. You will get nice view from the top. Need to climb steep stairs. Nit revommended for aged people. 
  • Nothing much left inside the palace. It is more of a structure now, with a magnificent façade. The structure looms over the city of Leh and can be seen from almost all parts of the city. 
  • Leh Palace is about 400 metres high (3600m) city, so it is not advisable to walk up to it, but better with a taxi and then get off and walk. This is for those who have respiratory problems. The Palace is empty pore there are some things that are still to see, as well as to appreciate the way of life of the people who lived it.
