Packed with amazing Ladakhis artifacts very well and simply displayed. The young guide is very knowledgeable and makes the visit very interesting and mellow. the palace is beautiful with amazing views all around, we spent the night in a huge room for 3 people, it was like sleeping in a museum. Highly recommended.

The Stok Palace is about 15 kilometres from Leh, in a very lovely position with good views of the Indus Valley. The Palace was built in 1824, so is not very old.

Worth visiting during a trip to Leh. Has a great history attached, which locals will narrate. Most of the palaces in Leh area are small unlike palaces in Rajasthan. The palace is very near to Leh town & is ideal to visit on the second day of your visit after one day rest and acclimatization. Will not take much time... More

If this is not on your "places to visit in Ladakh" it was a big mistake, or that someone misinformed you. Not only you get to encounter the "lunar scape" on your way in & out but one of the neat and aptly named 'museum' this is. Correctly labelled and a good english speaking escort is available having sound knowledge... More

If you visit Leh, this should be on your wishlsit. The Stok palace and it's museum is worth a visit. The location is great and you should enjoy pakodas and tea at its quaint café. The palace also offers stay and seems a great place to stay with ex-Royal family.

Well worth the visit. I had never been in a palace before and I was facinated by the history and significance of the palace.

Fantastic way to get there is to scooter from Leh. Beautiful palace, still occupied by the royal family. You can stay there too. There is a little cafeteria. The museum is cool but the labeling is random and not always clear what one is looking at.
