“GREAT VIEWS AT NIGHT!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I went up at night and had a wonderful time. It is not so crowded and you can see the sunset! The cafe offers organic tea! Nice way to spend the evening. There is a set of binoculars you can pay to use and you can see all of the valley below!

“AN ABODE OF PEACE AND BEAUTY”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

A magnificent hill with slightly steep concrete road which will take you to the top where one can watch and enjoy the beauty of the 'Stupa'. This site should be visited in afternoon so that apart from enjoying the beauty of this marvellous architecture, one can also enjoy the golden hills during glorious sunset.

“Not just another Chorten”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

As the subject suggests its not just any other Stupa, Situated 2 kms from Changspa, the stupa offers amazing city view and is a must visit place for photography enthusiasts.

A Stupa is a symbol of Buddha’s Teaching. It is like a time capsule in which Buddha’s relics, Holy Dharma Books and Buddha statues are sealed for future generations.
Construction for the Ladakh Shanti Stupa started in 1983 by Bhikshu Gyomyo Nakamura and the Temple attached to the Stupa was inaugurated in 1985 by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
