  • Very beautiful Stupa. The temples are also very nice. There is also a nice meditation room with a Buddha statue inside. The place is very scenic, due to being on a height you can get almost complete view of Leh city.
  • Having great views.... good place to have peace of mind..... If you go in evening , you can have the best views and if there is clear sky you can have world's best night sky view
