Areas Covered

Leh - Leh was the capital of the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh, now the Leh district in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. Dotted with stupas and crumbling mud-brick houses, the Old Town is dominated by a dagger of steep rocky ridge topped by an imposing Tibetan-style palace and fort. Here, gushing streams and narrow footpaths link traditionally styled Ladakhi buildings with flat roofs, sturdy walls and ornate wooden window frames.

**Magnetic Hill - **The Magnetic hill, located close to Leh, is known for its wonderful magnetic properties. Once here, you can see for yourself vehicles moving up at a speed of 20 km/ hour with the engines off. It is a unique experience to see your car being pulled upwards due to the magnetic force of the hill. Aircraft have to gain altitude to avoid magnetic interference near the hill. It is 27 km from Leh.

**Nubra Valley - **The Nubra Valley, once on the trading route that connected eastern Tibet with Turkistan via the famous Karakoram Pass has been opened recently to the tourists. Dotted around the valley are ancient gompas and ruined palaces and villages are close enough together to make this magnificent walking country. The main attraction of the Nubra valley is Bactarian Camels (double hump Camel).

**Khardongla Pass - **At an elevation of 18,379 ft, Khardung La is the world’s highest motorable road and serves as gateway to Shyok and Nubra valleys in Ladakh. Located in Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir, the high mountain pass is in the Karakoram Range north of Leh. The pass offers amazing views of the valley and the roads winding up the mountain. The pristine air, scenic vistas and the feeling of being on top of the world have made Khardung La a popular tourist attraction.

**Shey - **The old capital of Ladakh, Shey is situated in the upper Indus valley in Jammu and Kashmir in north India. It lies on the route between Leh and Hemis Monastery, 15 km from Leh. Currently, the palace serves as a centre of Buddhism and houses the Shey monastery. It has the largest golden Buddha statue. It covers almost three floors of the monastery. Painting on the walls, murals and sculptures of Buddha is worth seeing.

**Pangong Lake -**Situated at a height of about 13,900 ft, the name Pangong is a derivative of the Tibetan word Banggong Co meaning “long, narrow, enchanted lake”. One third of the lake is in India while the remaining two thirds lies in Tibet, which is controlled by China. Majority of the streams which fill the lake are located on the Tibetan side. The first glimpse of the serene, bright blue waters and rocky lakeshore remains etched in the memory of tourists. There is a narrow ramp-like formation of land running into the lake which is also a favourite with tourists.

Shopping And Entertainment

Shopping in Ladakh can be a wonderful experience. Some of the important shopping hubs are as follows:

**Leh, Ladakh **- Shopping in Leh is an experience in itself as the main bazaar gets full with souvenir shops and boutiques during peak tourist season.

There is also a cluster of shops in Leh that sell carpets, handicrafts, and curios from the Kashmir valley. Souvenirs on sale include local household items like the tea and chang vessels, cups, butter churns, knitted carpets with Tibetan design, jewellery, semi-precious stones like turquoise, coral, prayer flags, musical instruments, and dance masks. The main markets in Leh are Tibetan Market off Old Leh Road for clothes and Moti Market near the Leh bus stand.
