Good collection of Thangkas and a good view

View of Stok Palace and view of landscape from Palace is itself worth visiting. Museum has good collection of Thangkas and other artifacts.

A lovely drive up out of Leh brings you to The Stok Palace . The structure of the Palace is beautiful & worth the climb to see the exhibition & exhibits inside. There are also great views out over the valley from the top

Well maintained with the a great collection of Thunkas which are 600+ years old. There are also artifacts and traditional costumes, headgears and a well informed tour guide with insights into the royal lifestyle of a bygone era. The palace itself is still the home to the present royals and a part of it is also a heritage hotel. Great... More

old but well-maintained Royal palace, the family lives there and the exhibits are quite interesting, nice setting 13kms South of Leh city, good views, albeit a tad costly (70rps foreigners, rps20 locals...), the café has nice views, but average tea frankly overpriced

This palace is let out as a hotel by the royal family. The entrance is extremely unimpressive, next to a BSNL facility and through a small parking lot and back alley. Entrance is not for free and you are not allowed to take pictures. Climbing up stairs you reach a terrace where you take off your shoes and enter a... More

Though it is not the most talked about place in Leh-Ladakh, But surely good place to visit and experience the calm ambiance. This place relaxes you mentally and give you more power and energy for next tour. Loved spending time here!

If you enjoy old archaic places, you would like to hang around this place. Its is located within close vicinity to Leh and so can be included as part of your itinerary. It is definitely not a must visit, but nevertheless, a good place to spend some calm time in the serene Buddhist environment. One can get ample number of... More

This is a good and a bad place. Good if you have not visited any other part of Leh then you would love the panaromic view from the palace and the 2 room ill maintained museum with no one to give you brief about the artifacts kept there. This is bad, if you have to invest 3-4 hours of your... More

This is a good place to visit. My group spent bout 3 hours there. It is very near to the Leh and is well maintained. The family of the king is still living in some parts of the same and the other parts are exhibited as museum. There is good cafeteria/canteen. I got the best Panorma View of the Leh... More
