mosque, city palace, the bazaar and the gompas,
are all within walking distances of each other.
Shey, Spituk and Phyang are quite close while
Stok, Matho, Thiksey, Stakna, Chernrey, Hemis,
Likir, Basgo and Alchi are all a day's touring
distance. Rumbak and Markha offer exciting treks,
while Stok Kangri is the best for a climb. Boating
and river running too are possible on the Indus.
The beauty of Leh is that it
introduces you best to Ladakh’s ways while
you head out for short walks or drive around.
Leh stands accessible, surrounded by the majesty
of the Himalayan enclave. The experience can
best be described as a peek into the delights
that make up this ancient trade route.
