This stupa are very beautiful. the white color of stupa make this building look contrast from the dry brown mountain around. This stupa is located on the mountain that you can see all of Leh city. You must come on the evening. I'm vote this is one of my favourite view in Leh.

This is a perfect view point located at an altitude giving an amazing birds eye view of the city of Leh..!! The whiteness of the stupa signifies its very name - Shanti ( peace ). The ideal time to visit this would be early evening as the slight golden tinge in the setting sun makes the entire sky like a... More

A very peaceful place and one of the flag bearers of world peace, shanti stupa is a place not to be missed when in leh. The stupa itself is beautiful and gives breathtaking vistas of the leh valley and most serene views of whole leh city. Highly recommended.

Famous stupas in Ladakh - we went here on the first day of our trip - after we got acclimatized. Beautiful structure - a visual treat.

Situated in the Chanspa area of Leh city, Shanti Stupa offers scenic view of the entire Leh town. It can be easily reached by 20minutes hike from the road.

This is one of the famous Stupa in Ladakh. This is build in high attitude. Stupa is quite big and very beautiful. View from Stupa is too good. Painting on the stupa is very beautiful. Beautiful and religious place to visit.

Leh is at over 11,500 feet above sea level and adjusting to the altitude is a problem especially if you fly straight into town. Here is a tip that has always worked for me. On the day of your arrival, walk the 500+ steps up to Shanti stupa and stay there for about an hour before coming down. You can... More

Wow - one glimpse at the huge architecture and you would keep admiring it. I would highly recommend this place for some amazing views all around. This could be a long drive from your hotel though.

Nothing special about it if you have seen Stupa's before, but still worth a visit and it gives you a very special view of the city, since it is at a height.
