Day 02: Full day local sightseeing tour
After breakfast proceed on full day sightseeing tour of Shey Palace, Sindhu Darshan Ghats, Thiksey Monastery & Hemis Monastery.
The Shey Palace sits silently atop a hillock at an elevation of 3,415 meters (11,204 feet). Located in the upper Indus Valley, the Shey Palace was built by King Deldan Namgyal (aka Lhachen Palgyigon) in 1655 to serve as a summer retreat for the Ladakhi kings. He added the Shey Monastery within the palace complex in the same year to honor his departed father, Singay Namgyal. The monastery houses a 12 meters (39 feet) high gilded copper statue of the Sakyamuni Buddha in a seated posture, which is presumably the second largest in Ladakh. Although the palace is mostly in ruins today, one can still visit the monastery.
Situated about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) away from Shey Monastery, the Thiksey Monastery is a fort monastery that’s built in the likeness of the Potala Palace of Lhasa, Tibet and houses about 60 monks. Resting on top of a hill at an altitude of 3,600 meters (11,811 feet) in the Indus Valley, this Gelugpa (Yellow Hat) Buddhist monastery is a 12 storey complex with a precious collection of murals, thangkas, stupas, statues and swords.
About 45 kilometers (28 miles) from Leh at a height of 3,657 meters (12,000 feet), the Hemis Gompa is one of the highest monasteries of the world.
