Leh is the heart of the Leh district and capital of Ladakh in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, India. Leh is located in the Indus river valley at a crossroads of the old trading routes from Kashgar, Tibet, and Kashmir. Its importance as a trading town slowed down with the partition of British India, and ended with the closure of the border in 1962 during the Sino-Indian war. Since the 1999 war with Pakistan, and the consequent development of the Manali-Leh highway, it has become a bustling tourist town, with large numbers of Kashmiri traders. It’s a small town, easy to get most places by foot. The old town is a compact area of mud brick houses and narrow lanes directly to the east of Main Bazar. Changspa is the agricultural “suburb” northwest of the center, with many guesthouses.

Leh Sightseeing

For such a historic site and popular tourist destination, Leh has surprisingly few tourist sights:

  • The former Palace of the King of Ladakh (admission 100rps). The most noticeable building in Leh, the palace was built in the 17th century, and now undergoing restoration. There’s not much to see on the inside, but there are good views outside.
  • Buddhist temples:
    • Namgyal Tsemo Gompa – above the Palace, built 1430, is only open from 7AM-9AM during the morning puja.
    • Soma Gompa – just around the corner from Main Bazar, it’s a large modern gompa. It’s also the location of the Ladakhi Buddhist Association, a conservitive political orginisation, with ties to Hindutva groups.
    • Karma Dupgyud Choeling – monastery in the Karma Kagyu tradition
  • The small mosque
  • Shanti Stupa : built by a Japanese Buddhist group. This modern stupa is somewhat kitschy, but still worth a visit.
  • Pangong Tso A beautiful high altitude lake at 4350 meters with deep blue waters, surrounded by tall mountain peaks. This lake lies on the Indo – China boundary, with only one fourth of the lake being in India. The road to this lake passes through Chang-la pass , claimed to be at 5425 meters. It’s a five hour drive (149 Kms) from Leh to this place. There is also a small camp on the way where a Yak Safari can be done. The passage is also very tough to cross by car. So a four-wheel drive car is recommended. Experienced bikers should not have any problem. Day return trips from Leh avoid the AMS issue , but you won’t be able to see much during the your 60 minutes stay there .Overnight trips directly from Leh is outside safety guidelines . The safe and comfortable option is to plan this trip at the end of your stay in Leh , and with a overnight stop at Tangtse (altitude 3950) .
  • Monasteries in Ladakh : Most travellers use Leh as a base to visit the numerous gompas , the Buddhist monasteries of Ladakh.
  • War Museum (War Museum, Leh). Fascinating place run by the Indian Army showcasing the history, glory and the tools of the trade related to army operations defending India in some of the most hostile terrain in the world. It also has a fascinating display on the Siachen battlefield – the highest and more arduous battlefield in the world.
  • Donkey Sanctuary (Home for helpless donkeys)  The sanctuary is situated just off the road leading to Khardungla Pass. The public is encouraged to visit the sanctuary and friendly signs will direct you to the sanctuary from the center of Leh. It is no more than a pleasant 5 to 10 minute stroll from the main road to the Sanctuary and the artistic surprise awaiting you is well worth the effort. It is open to the public throughout the day and donations and juicy carrots are most welcome and used exclusively for improving the lives and welfare of these wonderful animals. Free
  • Leh is the place to prepare for a trekking in Ladakh, which offers a huge number of possible trekking routes.
  • White-water rafting : on the Zaskar and Indus rivers is also organised from Leh. Please be advised that the Indus rafting route from Nimmu towards the Pakistani border has rapids of increasing severity which run along the grades of 4, 4+, and 5; the latter two grades being not for the very faint of heart.
