Places to visit:
You need to get a permit to travel around from the local authority providing information about the vehicle and the passengers. It will cost somewhere from Rs.200 to Rs.300.
You need to plan-out palaces to visit according to the locations and the number of days you got. I have arranged them accordingly for you to best of my knowledge, but its better that you should research yourself as well.
- Leh Palace – The palace is open for public but is being restored by Indian Govt. A Palace roof provides a panoramic view of the city surrounded by mountains. A Museum section of the palace also opens for public sometimes.
- Magnetic Hill – It appears like cars and other objects are rolling up the hill. But actually the surrounding creates an optical illusion that the downhill road is an uphill road.
- Pathar Sahib Gurudwara – One of the landmarks with its own history and story, you shouldn’t miss this if you are visiting Leh. Maintained and operated by the Indian Army.
- Market Place – The local market is also one of the major attractions for tourists having roof top restaurants and bars to relax and enjoy the weather. The Food is really good, especially the road side Mutton Kebabs and the Mango Pie from the German Bakery. The Market is very well know for Pashmina Wool items and the Moti market.
