I had a wonderful and amazing experience in visiting this 150 years old Ladakhi traditional house know as Raku house/ Youth cultural centre situated in Leh. This beautiful house has been restored and revived in it’s traditional way which seems to be very much pleasant and mesmerising for eyes to see. Apart from this, this centre also organises various kinds of seminars, workshops, music programs, yoga and meditation classes and many more which proved to be boon for many people. From the delicious local food served at this centre to peaceful ambience, everything is just lit. So whoever visits Ladakh I must say that you should visit this beautiful Raku house/ Youth Cultural Centre to experience the oneness of all. 😉

It's the best place to hangout during summer in Leh town, especially when there used to be various activities going on where we can learn about mindfulness, yoga, meditation, environment, ethics, moral, cultures; and also it's a great place where we meet people from all different parts of the world with different background and language. The organisation also shows awesome documentaries, short films, and presentations which are always edifying. For leisure also, it's awesome to sit there at the rooftop and enjoy playing/listening some good music!

I've attended workshops and small events since two years. It's always on my top recommendation for myself, friends, and other visitors. Youths have the best opportunity to learn and work for a better future there! Must visit :)

Its a 150 year old traditional house with a very peaceful environment. There are lot of things to explore in it like The Museum, Art Gallery,Traditional Kitchen in the ground floor. A small cafe in the top floor where one could sit and listen to the birds chirping. Interact with the staff members, who are all student youth.

It is taken care by the members of Flowering Dharma (A student-youth organization).
They conduct a lot of activities over there, like Sunday Philosophy & Meditation classes, Mindfulness workshop, Cup Talks, Movie screening and many more!

Its basically a short visit for like 1-2 hr unless there's any activity going on.

The best thing is the vibe one gets after visiting this place. And make sure you try the pepper mint tea, which is home grown and fully organic.
