“Brilliant view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

It has a brilliant view and is a very serene place to visit. The monastery itself is very peaceful and is a nice place to go and sit.

“just above the Leh palace-- good for initial day(s) in Leh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

A good walk from Leh up the hill beyond the Leh Palace. Good for your second day to help adjust to altitude. Amazing views of leh valley and the majestic mountains all around.

“Good place to relax with amazing views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

After a short walk you can reach this gompa, from both sides following the steps in its north side or following the way up to the Leh Palace. Is a very small monastery but is worth the stroll up there to enjoy the amazing views of Stok Kangri and relax for a while. If you want to visit the castle on the top you only have to pay 20 rupees.

“Best view of Leh Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

We wanted to go to the Leg Palace. But got confused on the roads and reached the Kardung La road. Asked a shop keeper and he suggest that now that were on that road, we should visit the Mangyal Tsemo Palace. The place provides the perfect view of the Leh town. There is a huge statue of Buddha. There is also a trekking route from Leh Palace. Do not miss this if you are Leh.
