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.

Nice to see different articles, antiques and handicrafts on sale. Lot of variety and choices but be ready to get ripped of if you do not bargain hard. The shopkeepers were kind and friendly. Refrain from buying precious stones. They will mostly be fake.

Must visit this place when in Leh. However, be careful and bargain very hard (upwards of 50%) at times. Often the precious stone jewelry is fake to be careful. The shopkeepers are very friendly and enterprising.

Visits to the tibetan markets was a daily affair for us when we visited leh in july 2009.Shopkeepers are friendly and in some instances , I felt that they had better stuff than the overpriced shops.But ask for a receipt if u r buying some...
