Leh: Places to Visit

It’s been nearly 3 months since we visited Ladakh and I still remember each detail so vividly, I think my heart is still all over the region. This post was long due but so many things were happening at our end, I had to stay away from the blog. I did not realize how and when 2017 came to an end and 2018 began. Majority of the winter season is over and I am still pondering, what all did I miss! The days are getting longer, and the mornings are so beautiful, again. I hope you all had a great start to the year. I also hope I am not too late in wishing you all a magical and prosperous 2018.

This post is a photo journal of the local destinations we visited during our stay at Leh. We dedicated 2 days to explore the local monuments (mostly monasteries) and coveredย  more than 10 different places. Luckily, we didnโ€™t have to rush through the locations and were able to spend enough time to feel the great vibes at each place. While the monasteries made us admire the great architecture and feel the wonderful energy, Hall of Fame gave us goosebumps. While Sangam (the point where rivers Indus and Zanskar meet) is raw and dreamy, Moonland makes one scream in glee. No two monasteries were the same in terms of looks but they filled our hearts with love and gratitude. Overall, we loved all the places we could accommodate in our 2 days of local sightseeing.

Here is the list of all the amazing places we visited as part of the Leh Sightseeing Package. Maybe when you visit, you can go through this list and choose what works for you.
