This place boasts of old school sentiments of Letter writing and parcel sending. Tourists are also welcome to make use of the service. This is definitely a respite from the monotony of the virtual world and digitization. The stamp collection is a must see here.

Leh : Few places in India are at once so traveller friendly and yet so enchanting and hassle-free as mountain framed Leh. Dotted with stupas and crumbling mud-brick houses, and old town is dominated by steep rocky ridge topped by Tibetan-style palace and fort.

Not really sure why this is listed as an attraction. It's just a regular post office. And it's located in the Main Bazaar. Really nothing special at all.

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.
