Leh Travel guide
Leh : Michelin's recommendations
A meeting-point for hikers from around the world and a base for excursions into the Ladakh region, Leh is a picturesque Himalayan town built on a steep crest crowned by the old Tsemo Fort. Here, amid a maze of narrow streets, flights of steps and old houses made from mud brick, an austere palace reveals its past splendours to visitors.
