Dominating the old town, the Leh Palace is a nine-storey mud-brick edifice built by the king Singey Namgyal 400 years ago. Its design was inspired by the Potala Palace in Lhasa. Inside, a museum displays a fine collection of ceremonial dresses, crowns and jewellery. Above the palace, there is a steep trail to Namgyal Tsemo gompa. This Buddhist monastery surrounded by hundreds of fluttering Tibetan prayer flags is located on a hillock overlooking the city. Then, head to the Shanti Stupa, a large white chorten perched atop a rocky peak. The stupa was built 30 years ago by Japanese monks to promote world peace and harmony. It has two levels decorated with colourful paintings and carvings representing episodes of the Buddha's life. From here, you can enjoy a fabulous panoramic view of Leh and the Indus valley.
