“Good range of Tibetan artifacts.”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

These Tibetan markets are everywhere in Leh and offer a good range of Tibetan goods especially beads etc. Ask around and get an idea of prices and be prepared to bargain hard.

“For the tourists mostly!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Here you can find everything that is not available in Lhasa Tibet! Fairly good selection and for what it is fairly well priced! Even better if you haggle! Remember to ask about any information you want or need as you buy something, they are only to happy to help and you know the info will be right too! Most speak rather good English here in Leh!

“Good Choices but Overpriced at Places!!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

There are many refugee markets in and around the Leh Center. Be careful with the prices. The same necklace ranged from 200-2000Rs in different places. Its a delight for the people with SLRs. There are some exotic gift items to be brought back for your near and dear ones.

“Antiques, winter-wear & stones”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

There are a lot of Tibetan markets in Leh and all of them have the same stuff on offer. You will find antiques (many from Delhi), winter-wear (from Tibet) and so-called semi precious stones, whose authenticity is difficult to verify.
The market is good to visit once. Most goods are overpriced considering that it is a flea market, which really ruins the experience.

“Good antiques”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Good variety of antiques but the prices quoted are abnormally high. Bargain hard. Ask only 30 or 40% of that they have quoted. Mostly you get it if you increase your price 10-20 INR. The precious stones they show you may not be real. Don't buy unless you can judge by yourself.
