  • The Shanti Stupa is very calm and refreshing. It doesn't need a lot of climbing, making it easy for any age-groups to see it. It is situated in a very picturesque location. If you are a photo freak, you will find amazing backdrop for all your pictures. Just sit on the benches and admire the beauty of the nature. Happy refreshing!
  • The whole place has peace written all over it... beautifully constructed and well maintained. Instead going there by car one should definitely try to climb through stairs and enjoy beautiful city view in back drop.
  • A peaceful place.. Best time to visit.. Afternoon time so you can enjoy the sunset
  • It feels really awesome in the early morning when it is really quite justifying its name. The view is also amazing. Do take pictures but nothing can match the view of the naked eyes. So remember that.
  • Awesome place to visit as a local sightseeing in the Leh city. It’s located on little bit height and very good view of Leh city… Awesome atmosphere in June to August… Feel very good in sunlight with wind… You have enjoyed here between sun light and DOM shadow …You can love to seat here and rest of your mind & body…
