the place is kept so neat and clean it appeared that one can just sleep thereon without even brooming the area. the people are so proud of their area and they preserve it so well as if it was their own dwelling. when someone dropped some wrapper on the ground (while parking at some point for passing due to snow),...

Folks seemed distinctly unfriendly to non-locals. But then I have seen that attitude in my local post office too. So, didn't pay attention -- except hope that the people had a better day when I visited the next time. But then the rating makes no difference. Wnen you need a post-office, you need one.

A reasonably physically fit person must take a trip to Leh Ladakh area. It is something different and worth visiting. During our visit to this area we went to Pengong Lake. What a sight!!! It is almost 140 km long lake with width ranging from 3-5kms. One third of lake is in India whereas two third is in China. One... More

I used their service to post plenty of postcards to make my friends jealous. The staff is unusually friendly for Indian standards. They do sell postcards and you can mail letters/postcard to any destination

The amazing thing that a post office functions at such an altitude and caters to such an inhospitable and huge terrain. Hats off to the Indian Postal Services. They could possibly keep it in a more traditional way.

Highly overrated. Nothing much to talk about, except an old post office. No need to make a special stop for this. There are many other sight-seeing options nearby. Try the gompas, mosques, and monastries

If you are expecting a U.S. esque post office you will not find it here or anywhere in India for that matter. In some aspects the country moves at a slower pace, with the post moving at a slower pace, and if you really desire to immerse yourself in India you have to understand that everything does not go at...
