weather is quite cold in Ladakh, even during the height of summers.
After breakfast at the hotel, rest for some time to get acclimatized with the high altitude. Later in the
afternoon, visit the Shanti Stupa, which dominates the city's skyline from atop a hill. The two-storey stupa is
embellished with colourful and intriguing paintings of deities and incidents from Buddhist mythology.

monastery has intriguing images of many deities. Some claim that the hand of a demon killed near the
monastery is also kept here, all wrinkled and eerie.
