Small Monastery from where you can have view of leh palace, too windy at the top carrying along with sounds of peace. Though very few pay visit, but for me this ha sits own charm. Try a visit.

Right in the city on a slope near the market. Market is full of quaint shops and is worth the stroll and the photo opportunity.

You can enjoy spectacular view of leh city from this place otherwise nothing to see. You may like to avoid visiting this place. You can have a look from Palace itself.
