You can also visit the pristine white Shanti Stupa that overlooks the city and the 17th-century Leh Palace. 

Walk to Sankar Gompa, a richly painted monastery with a beatific atmosphere perched atop a towering peak. Over 100 volumes of Buddhist teachings are located on the front balcony and inside there is a plethora of amazing sculptures and statues.
