Leh, the capital city of Ladakh is a historical transit point for caravans of the bygone Silk Route, and still looks and feels like a trading post of the ancient past. It is an imminently accessible and fascinating locale, featuring two notable monasteries, a palace, a mosque, and countless narrow, crooked alleyways beckoning the curious visitor. To stroll through Leh, taking in its sights, sounds, and a pleasantly manageable population of just 10,000, is to experience what writer Andrew Harvey called "the peaceful life". The town is still dominated by the now ruined Leh Palace, former home of Ladakh’s royal family. It also plays host to a cultural dance show every evening. We visit the Highest Motorable Road in the world-The KhardungLa Pass. The evening can be spent exploring the markets. Overnight at Guest House.
