|Day 1:||Leh airport - Leh (Main Bazar, Leh Palace, Namgyal Tsemo Gompa, Shanti Stupa)
Night in Leh
Board your morning flight to Leh and contemplate the beautiful mountains of Ladakh from above. The flight from Delhi to Leh takes approximately 90 minutes and it is one of the most impressive in the world. Upon arrival at Kushok Bakula Rimpoche airport, transfer to your hotel in Leh. The height of Leh is 3,500 metres above sea level and your body needs to adjust to the rarefied oxygen level at this altitude. To do so, you need to drink a lot of liquid (water, tea, juice, soup, etc.) and you should walk at a leisurely pace. For lunch, head to the Main Bazar or Changspa Road where you can find many restaurants. This could be the opportunity to try local dishes such as skiu, chowmein and momos.
After lunch, head to Leh’s old town. It's easy to get lost exploring its maze of small winding streets flanked by mud-brick houses and crumbling chortens. The Leh Palace that dominates the town of Leh is a typical example of medieval Tibetan architecture. This tall dun-coloured complex of nine storeys contains a beautiful shrine and an interesting museum with objects belonging to the royal family. From the palace, follow the path climbing up to the hilltop where hundreds of colourful prayer flags are floating in the wind and reach Namgyal Tsemo gompa. This Buddhist monastery rising above the city was founded during the 15th century. The main shrine contains a 3-storey-tall statue of Maitreya Buddha and a number of statues of protector deities. Next, go to the Shanti Stupa that dominates the city and admire the spectacular panorama of Leh and the surrounding mountain peaks. This large white stupa is a Japanese gift to Ladakh to commemorate 2,500 years of Buddhism. It was inaugurated by the Dalai Lama in 1991. Walk back to the Main Bazar where women clad in Gonchas (traditional Ladakhi dress) sell homegrown fruits and vegetables. As you take a stroll in the bustling market, visit the Gompa Soma and the Jama Masjid mosque.
