The palace itself was still closed for the winter however it is beautiful from the outside and the views from the ramparts over Stok village and the valley are stunning. You can see the massive buddha on the hillside from a distance here which is fantastic.

Nice place for a person who wants to know the history of the Ladakh region and thus carries a major importance through the area. This place has all the old heritage preserved being jewels, paintings, utensils etc of as early as 7th century.

Stok Palace is absolutely charming if you approach it not from the parking lot in the back, but make your way up the stairs from the village. Once you pay the small entrance fee, you enter a small but sunny courtyard via the stairs. One more flight up, and you find the museum with displays of photos of the royal... More

It's not that great museum. Royal family lives in manali, but the building is maintained. Roof top restaurant is nice for evenings Skip it

This appears to be the royal family's principal earning as the admission charge (no doubt only Rs 50 pp) is much higher than anywhere else in Ladakh and the museum itself is uninspiring and very basic. Considering that one has to go away from the normal route for which your hired cab charges Rs 750, it can safely be given... More

Unless you are a real enthusiast, this palace is well worth skipping. The view from the restauarant outside are good. Inside on the walls you will find some old photos of Indira Gandh & Nehru,

Cycled out to Stok early one morning and enjoyed a tour of the palace. Fascinating to learn about the history of the royal family and understand more of the culture of this region. Shame about the communications tower immediately behind the palace though. Sat at the café overlooking the valley and enjoyed lemon ginger tea - what a spectacular setting.
