An iconic white Buddhist Stupa on a hilltop with engravings of Lord Biddha's birth, preaching and the spread of Buddhism in this hospitable region. The Shanti Stupa holds the relics of Lord Buddha at its base. A place to meditate and watch the surrounding scenic beauty. A must place to visit.

Shanti Stupa is a Buddhist white-domed stupa (chorten) on a hilltop in Chanspa, Leh district, Ladakh, in north India. It was built in 1991 by Japanese Buddhist Bhikshu, Gyomyo Nakamura and part of the Peace Pagoda mission. The Shanti Stupa holds the relics of the Buddha at its base, enshrined by the 14th Dalai Lama. The stupa has become a tourist attraction not only due to its religious but also due to its location which provides panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.It was built in 1991 to commemorate 2500 years of Buddhism and to also promote world peace. The best time to visit Shanti Stupa is between June and September. The distance between Shanti Stupa and Leh is approximately 4 km from Leh.

Taking the steps up to the Stupa is a great workout, and views of Leh and surrounds from there are great. But beware crowds in tourist season; DO NOT drive up then!
