The former capital of the Kingdom of Ladakh, Leh possesses a historic old town area marked by stupas, monasteries, and traditional mud-brick houses.
Shop till you drop at Zanskar Arts and Himalayan Pashmina Shawls. Your inner history buff will appreciate Thiksey Monastery and Alchi Choskor Monastery. Take a break from Leh with a short trip to Alchi Monastary in Alchi, about 1h 35 min away. Spend the 5th (Sat) among lush scenery at Zanskar the Virgin Valley. There's still lots to do: look for gifts at De Pashmina Emporium, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basgo gompa, contemplate the long history of Riasi Fort or Zorawar Fort, and take in the dramatic natural features at Magnetic Hill.
