The former capital of the Kingdom of Ladakh, Leh possesses a historic old town area marked by stupas, monasteries, and traditional mud-brick houses.
Hall of Fame and Alchi Monastary are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to Photography Tours and Zanskar the Virgin Valley. Go for a jaunt from Leh to Hemis to see Hemis Monastery about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Thiksey Monastery, look for gifts at De Pashmina Emporium, and admire the striking features of Stakna Monastery.
