  • A good place to visit during the cheering period, especially in the evening. I walked here with my guide and spent some quality time.

  • This place is seen from anywhere in Leh, but the views one gets from here are just super. Go in evening and stay on till the lights come on. Good place for photography, time lapse videos.  more »

  • The Shanti Stupa is very calm and refreshing. It doesn't need a lot of climbing, making it easy for any age-groups to see it. It is situated in a very picturesque location. If you are a photo freak, you will find amazing backdrop for all your pictures. Just sit on the benches and admire the beauty of the nature. Happy refreshing!
  • The whole place has peace written all over it... beautifully constructed and well maintained. Instead going there by car one should definitely try to climb through stairs and enjoy beautiful city view in back drop.
