The Shanti Stupa has become synonymous to Leh, and we thought of posting one of our photographs of the popular landmark. The stupa provides 360 degree views of the Leh landscape. Even with numerous tourists visiting the Stupa, it is really quiet around other than the sound of the strong winds that seem to blow away your woolen scarves and hats.
We were actually pretty lucky to have no tourists around when taking our pictures. It was probably due to the strong gusts of winds that literally froze our fingers, and made it extremely challenging to take pictures.
Note: Look at the snow-capped mountains on to far right of the image. You can see the Khardung-La pass, arguably the highest motorable road in the world.
