The ever beautiful Leh is home to many attractions and there is a lot to explore and experience here. The monastery and the village share their name, and it is these monasteries with their fascinating corpus of traditions and treasures that have made the villages so famous: Hemis, Thiksey, Basgo, Alchi, Lamayuru.

Don't miss the famous attractions including Leh Palace, Shanti Stupa, Tsemo Gompa and Stock Palace Museum, some of the famous places to visit in Leh. The scenic landscape is also ideal for high altitude treks, full of trails that connect remote villages spread along ancient trade routes. Two basic treks to start with are from Likir to Temisgam, a beautiful village trek through a largely flat route. This 4- to 5-day trek is closely followed by a road, enabling good support for the uninitiated. The second, from Stok to Matho, is a scenic walk, over three days. Though a high-altitude trek, there are valleys descending to the east from where it is possible to get to Leh, if need be, by the evening. Also, you if you have enough time to spare on your hands, you can check out some of the other places of interest around Leh.
