I had visited Tibetan Market when I was in Leh in July'14. You can pick up a lot of small gifts, like bracelets, bangles, necklaces, show-pieces and gift them to family/friends. The prices are slightly higher. Each bangle or bracelet could cost around 100 bucks each, but you can bargain and get it at a slightly lesser rate. I picked... More

Leh has a couple of Tibetan Markets selling jewellery and handicrafts.The stuff they sell is beautiful however they are over priced.Those who sell them never seem to be in the mood to negotiate too much either.Similar tibetan stuff will be half the rate around the lower regions of india like dehradun, dharamshala, rishikesh etc. All these places have tibetan markets...

This market located near centre old market Leh, Ladakh. Interestingly, I rarely saw people selling Tibetan stuff in this. Instead they sell mostly clothes. Since I visited this in October 2014, they sell winter clothes. Not really unique clothes, mostly clothes like fake The North Face, Adidas, jackets, trousers, t-shirts. I didn't check the quality, so perhaps they have good... More

If you want to buy something from Leh, it could be some Pashmina or Yak woollen stoles and scarfs. Stones, artifacts and other curios are too expensive

It is a nice street to walk around. Further, this is the best place to carry home some gifts and souvenirs. You get good clothes, handicrafts, stones, and other art work. Don't allot more than an evening for this.

These Tibetan markets are everywhere in Leh and offer a good range of Tibetan goods especially beads etc. Ask around and get an idea of prices and be prepared to bargain hard.

Here you can find everything that is not available in Lhasa Tibet! Fairly good selection and for what it is fairly well priced! Even better if you haggle! Remember to ask about any information you want or need as you buy something, they are only to happy to help and you know the info will be right too! Most speak... More

There are many refugee markets in and around the Leh Center. Be careful with the prices. The same necklace ranged from 200-2000Rs in different places. Its a delight for the people with SLRs. There are some exotic gift items to be brought back for your near and dear ones.

There are a lot of Tibetan markets in Leh and all of them have the same stuff on offer. You will find antiques (many from Delhi), winter-wear (from Tibet) and so-called semi precious stones, whose authenticity is difficult to verify. The market is good to visit once. Most goods are overpriced considering that it is a flea market, which really... More

Good variety of antiques but the prices quoted are abnormally high. Bargain hard. Ask only 30 or 40% of that they have quoted. Mostly you get it if you increase your price 10-20 INR. The precious stones they show you may not be real. Don't buy unless you can judge by yourself.
