Namgyal Tsemo Gompa-Panorama of Ladakh

This monastery is the highest point one can go in the Leh city to have the bird eye's view of the city. The Ladakh Range is clearly visible from here and you would love to spend an hour or so once you are here.

You can reach here after a roundabout journey covering a small portion of KhardungLa pass road. Other way to Leh Namgyal Monastery is short trek and the views are worth it. You can walk to the monastery from Leh Palace up a winding track. The trek is pretty steep and high that will also help to get acclimatize with the weather.

"The old ruins & houses made of stones. The Buddha statue is situated little bit higher than other places. It makes difficult to walk /climb this place due to high altitude & low oxygen. People get tired very early as they are not used to these regions. If you are lucky you may spot the Indian Air Force Cargo Plane as the base station is just near by."
