|Day 1:||Leh airport - Leh (Main Bazar, Leh Palace, Namgyal Tsemo Gompa, Shanti Stupa)
Night in Leh
This morning, take the scenic flight to Ladakh, the “roof of the world”. It takes approximately 90 minutes to fly from Delhi to Leh. Upon arrival at Leh airport, take a car to the city centre and check into your hotel. Leh, the main city of the region, is located at an altitude of 3,500 metres above sea level. Today, you need to acclimatize to the altitude and you should avoid any strenuous activity. Go out to a restaurant for lunch and try local specialities to get a taste of Ladakh.
After lunch, take a stroll through the narrow winding lanes of Leh’s old town until you reach the imposing Leh Palace that was built by the king Singey Namgyal during the first half of the 17th century. Walk through the maze of dark mud-brick corridors and stairways to the palace’s roof to enjoy a fine panorama of the old town. From the palace, there is a steep path to the Buddhist monastery of Namgyal Tsemo. The gompa was built during the 15th century at the summit of the Namgyal peak. It is surrounded by thousands of multi-colour prayer flags flapping in the wind dominates the whole valley and it is a famous landmark in Leh. The monastery enshrines an 8-metre-high statue of the Future Buddha. In the evening, head to the Shanti Stupa and contemplate the breathtaking bird eye view of the Leh as the sun sets behind the mountains. The stupa was built 30 years ago by Japanese monks as a symbol of purity and peace. Its two-level structure is decorated with colourful paintings and carvings depicting scenes from the Buddha's life. After sunset, walk back to the Main Bazar where you could sip a cup of Ladakhi tea (salted tea with yak butter). The lively market market where woman in traditional outfit sell vegetables is great place for people watching. Just opposite of the State Bank of India building, the Gompa Soma is small Buddhist temple hidden in a quiet courtyard. Nearby, the Jama Masjid dating from the 17th century is the largest mosque in Ladakh.
