A beautiful and peaceful monastery just above Leh palace and near to Leh market. Offers a wonderful view of Leh. Preferably visit in the evening to see a lit up Leh.

Namgyal Tsemo Monastery is a good place to take our children for a history tour and no doubt that they will certainly enjoy the views and palace.

The Gompa is on a high point from where you can see the entire Leh city. The expanse & beauty will leave you speechless. From where I stood, stairs ascended to the monastery.

But I was content to stand there & gaze at the juxtaposition of the colorful prayer flags against a rich blue sky.

This monastery may not be the most beautiful one in Ladakh. However, it should not be missed because it offers an incredible view in Leh town.

If you go to Leh you got to see the palace; After all the king and queen stayed there for 100's of years. This palace is much different then any other palace in India. Build out of rocks and mud. No marble, No gold, No silver. You will experience the simplicity of the Ladakhi people in the old days. This Palace tells the whole story, no one need to guess. If the king lived such a simple life, what about the rest. You can also see some of the prominent families below the king, there houses are also just below the kings Palace.

Hope you can walk and climb hills, I mean pretty step hills. Its an experience that you can tell your friends climbed the hill to reach the Tsemo Gompa at 14000 Ft. above sea level. Make sure you are healthy, have water bottle with you and a snack.
