Must Explore Places in Leh

Visiting Ladakh is a beautiful at the same time a thrilling road trip. While people are aware of all the exciting on-road locations and passes they aren’t much aware of what to do in their mandatory 2 days that are to be spent in Leh. Most people even confuse what is Leh because the terminology Leh-Ladakh is used together to describe the place. So this blog is for all who are going on a Ladakh trip and want to know what they could do on their stay in Leh.

  1. Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame is the highlight of the capital city Leh. Here you can learn everything about Leh and Ladakh Package, from its history, geography, culture and languages. Having said this it contains a huge area dedicated to explaining the Kargil war and how our army bravely fought this war. It has a list of shaheed soldiers and holders of Vir Charkas.

In the evening, the flag is hoisted and the national anthem is sung which surely evokes patriotism inside all. We can confidently say that the Hall of Fame is going to be the most memorable place on your whole Ladakh journey as interacting with our army soldiers and learning about their brave incidents touching a deep cord in everybody’s hearts.

Ticket price: 125

2. Shanti Stupa

Shanti Stupa is a place that brings peace to your mind and soul. The best time to visit it is during the sunset because during this time you can see the whole glistening city of Leh. One good thing is that it also has a Shanti Stupa cafe inside the property so you can enjoy the mesmerizing views while enjoying the taste of a local Ladakhi dish.

Ticket Price: It doesn’t have a ticket but you can voluntarily buy a Rs30 ticket for the maintenance of the area.

3. Magnetic Hills

Magnetic Hills is definitely a fun place to visit. This place is a wonder of nature that defies gravity. All you have to do is sit inside a vehicle and start it in neutral gear and the vehicle will start moving upwards by itself. Wonderful isn’t it? While it doesn’t have a fancy view or other things to offer, this experience makes up for all and thus it falls under a must-visit place in Leh.

4. Gurudwara Patthar Sahib

A road trip to Leh Ladakh Tour Package can be a hectic one and visiting a Gurudwara can bring you the much needed peace and solace to your inner self. Not just the regular peace that a religious location brings to you, Gurudwara Patthar Sahib also has a rich story behind it.

Guru Nanak Sahib protected this very place from a huge rock that an ‘asur’ threw on it, with just a single rudraksha. Can you believe it? That huge rock is still present inside and thus the name given to the Gurudwara.

5. Leh Local Market

It is mandatory to visit the local market when you visit any new location, because it tells you a lot about the local culture and lets you buy the needed souvenirs for friends and family. But there is something special about the Leh Market, you can see women sitting on the sideways knitting mufflers and caps with their own hands, jingles of Tibetan bells, and the good local cafes are present right there! This market looks beautiful in the evening but don’t be much late as by 9 shopkeepers close shops and go back to their homes.

That’s it for today. These are the main highlights on your Leh Ladakh road trip and we hope you won’t miss out on these places in Leh.

So good luck on your upcoming Ladakh trip and happy travelling!
