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

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.

The ticket of museum is feel very costly. There are golden and silver worked Burner (chulha) and utensils are kept in the kitchen. One restaurant is there and one can... More
