Leh Vacation Packages
Leh, in Jammu and Kashmir, is a city that about 37,000 people call home.
Leh is located about 380 miles (612 kilometers) north of New Delhi, the national capital, and approximately 260 miles (418 kilometers) east of Islamabad.
Once the private domain of the city’s elite families, today, the doors to Leh’s two most stately residences are open to visitors from all over the world. The Stok Palace and the Shey Palace are the ideal spots to explore the region’s fascinating social and political past.
The Leh Temple is an old place of worship that has stood the test of time. Visit this special place to discover its history as well as to study its design.
Those who enjoy the outdoors, will be pleased to learn that the area also has some ecological havens where you can go to see picturesque surrounds and remarkable local wildlife. To walk through one of the most visited local nature reserves, head to Pangong Tso.
Discover Lake Moriri, a special place where both locals and visitors often escape and dip their toes in the water. Follow the water’s edge and try to spot some birds or simply relax in a little peace and quiet.
Once you’ve checked out all the main spots on the Leh tourist map, be sure to stop by a few of these lesser known gems. No mater how many attractions you’ve managed to squeeze into your itinerary, no holiday to this city is complete without a visit to the Alchi, the Hemis Monastery, the Shanti Stupa and the Phyang Gompa.
