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

It was a nice ride out to Stok from Leh, the scenery was really beautiful and the palace was well kept but the museum really wasnt very interesting. Still it was a nice morning excursion.

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
