Tourist Attractions in Leh

Leh is one of the popular destinations, which offers everything from adventure tourism to spiritual healing. You are lucky if your trip coincides with the colorful festival of Ladakh when you can witness the traditional mask and peacock dances, which are part of the enthralling festival procession. Located on the east of Srinagar, Leh is the headquarters of Ladakh district.

Hall of Fame Leh

Leh rose to prominence in the 17th century when King Sengge Namgyal shifted his court from Shey to Leh. Subsequently Leh became an important trade center on the famous Silk route. The avid interest in Leh tourism began in 1970 when Leh was opened to tourists.

There are many beautiful tourist attractions in Leh. The Shanti Stupa is one of the finest monuments in Leh, although of recent origin. It is an international collaborative effort between Japan and Ladakh to preserve the relics of the Buddha enshrined by the Dalai Lama himself.

The steep climb to the stupa is worth the effort as it provides breath taking views of the beautiful Leh valley. If you are interested in the ancient history of Leh, then you should visit the 17 th century Leh Palace, although in a dilapidated condition. The Palace, which once housed the royalty, is now under the Archaeological Survey of India. Just above the palace on the Namgyal hill is the Victory Tower that was built in memory of Ladakh's victory over the Balti Kashmir armies in the 16th century. Namgyal Tsemo Gompa is a fascinating monastery that houses a three-story high Buddha image and ancient manuscripts.
