Shanti Stupa in Ladakh
Tourism in India is not complete without visiting Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir. The mighty Himalayan backdrop with evergreen fields, magical white snow and lively lakes makes this region more suitable to add it to anyone’s bucket list. One of the wonder in Ladakh is Shanti Stupa. Shanti Stupa is a Buddhist religious shrine with a white dome located on the hill top of Chanspa at 5 KMs from Leh in the Ladakh region. Shanti Stupa was built by Japanese Buddhist Monk Bhikshu, Gyomyo Nakamura and part of the Peace Pagoda mission in the year 1991. This stupa is built as a mark of successful completion of 2500 years of Buddhism. This is built to spread world peace and as a symbol of friendship between Japan and Ladakh. The holy relics of Buddha are protected and are enshrined by 14th Dalai Lama at the base of the Shanti Stupa in Ladakh. This stupa is known to have various sculptures of Buddha depicting his life stories such as his birth, defeating the devils, and the death of Buddha on the panels.
Shanti Stupa Leh Ladakh is surrounded by the native traditional villages andsnow clad mountains. The way to Khardung La, Shindu Ghat, Stok village and many places can be clearly seen from the Stupa. The stupa provides a spectacular and extensive view of the surrounding landscape. The sunrise and sunset are the two most popular views of this place. During sunset and sunrise, stupa is crowded with lots of visitors who gather here to experience the scintillating views of the area. Tourists flock to this place between 5 am to 9 pmto enjoy an unbelievable view of the serene Leh town.
Shanti Stupa in Ladakh is built at the height of 4,267meters with 500 steep steps. Tourists can reach this stupa either by driving or by walking. Going through the hardship of climbing the 500 steps does make us tired but the dazzling view on the top of the hill will make you refreshed and mesmerized and lets you forget the pain. The stupa looks more beautiful during the night since it is illuminated in the dark with beautiful lights. Due to this panoramic view and different architectural style, Shanti Stupa remains as an attractive top tourist destination among others in Ladakh. Though this is a religious shrine, it is looked as a hot tourist spot for its incomparable views.

Shashank's 6 days trip to LadakhThis was my first trip with Travel Triangle and I thoroughly loved the experience of planning and booking the trip via them. Would love to plan more trips through them in future. The agent via which I planned the trip was Kailash Expeditions. I got in touch with Stanzin from Kailash expeditions and he was very helpful throughout. The itinerary was modified as per my convenience. Hotel provided to us was Lakrook boutique stay which is a 4 star hotel. All the staff at hotel were very nice and helpful. Mr. Lobhzang, our driver on this trip was also very experienced and friendly. In harsh winters of Ladakh with snow on road, he drove with great perfection and also showed us the amazing places. Leh (Ladakh) is a beautiful place and when you have a great travel agent (Stanzin from Kailash Expeditions) and an amazing portal like travel triangle, the journey and trip becomes memorable. Thank you for this beautiful trip!!
Ketan's 9 days trip to LadakhWe had a last minute booking with LazyYatra and even then Mr. Yugal made sure we had the most memorable trip. Every detail of the trip was planned in advance with inch perfection. The stay was comfortable, food was great and ride was smooth. Our driver, Mr Wangdu, was a great person to share a ride with. He made sure, we were always comfortable and enjoying Ladakh to the fullest. He went out of his way on a few occasions to help us out as our phones had no connectivity there. Overall, I would rate this experience as A1 and would love to enjoy another trip planned by LazyYatra!
Shobhit's 4 days trip to LadakhMy overall experience was goood with kailash expedition and his team. They really worked hard to maintain services for clients. All the best for future. And when i will come back to ladakh definitely preferred kailash expedition. Best memories are so many like drive on frozen pangong lake, late evening visit to hunder sand dune, milkyway galaxy watching at midnight and one worst but ultimate experience was 4 am morning awaking with driver to help him to de-freeze fuel at minus 22 at tangtse but when de-freezing happened battery was totally discharged, then i went to powerhouse to charge battery and due to which we were started our journey with 3 hrs delay. And i really appreciate hardwork of driver mr. Lobzang.
Ca's 7 days trip to LadakhLeh, the crown of India, carved with soft white snow. Leh, treasure of beauty, charm and uniqueness. Leh, the sacred land with sound of bliss humming in the air. To plan a travel to such an inimitable place, that too, in the horrified winter season for the first time, is almost impossible without a travel guide. A well-informed and experienced guide plays a role of your eyes and ears as he/she not only shows you the way but also explains almost all possible do’s and don’ts of the places you wish to explore during your trip.. He/she holds your hand wherever you get stuck. He/she takes care of all your travel needs from pick-up to stay to food to city tour to drop. For us, it was YUGAL from Lazy Yatra- Travel Triangle. My husband and I planned to travel to Leh in winter to explore the most beautiful snow wonderland of India. We had decided to visit it in December 2019. While we were planning our trip, we checked with multiple travel portals but tasted disappointment as they were not willing to plan our trip during such harsh weather conditions at Leh in winter. After tasting disappointment multiple times we finally found delicious Ladoo in the form of “Travel Triangle/Lazy Yatra” portal (led by Mr. Yugal and team). They assisted us in customising our trip meticulously. The team ensured that we had an unrivalled experience and our memory bucket filled with unforgettable memories of the place, people and pleasure. The team also helped us book an alternate accommodation and flight when our return flight got cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. We really appreciate Yugal’s guidance and support and wish him a good luck!
Ajinkya's 9 days trip to LadakhVery well organized trip, enjoyed a lot, quality of bikes and hotels provided was excellent
Prasyhary's 5 days trip to LadakhHotels were amazing but the cab got an issue( violent leak while going to pangong tao and we couldn't visit pangong which is one of the major attraction of Ladakh. Travel agent is helpful and there for us all the time but some good planning about vehicle and guidance about itinerary would have made our travel more pleasurable. We didn't ask for any refund etc as we don't want to end the tour with displeasure.
Alekh's 9 days trip to LadakhOverall had a very good experience with Kailash Expeditions. Mr.Lobzang (our driver) was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
Suyash's 4 days trip to LadakhWe booked the ladakh trip as a couple. It was a seamless trip to Ladakh with activities such as individual bullet ride to Nubra valley. We enjoyed the trip at a very pocket-friendly way. Will chose travel triangle again. Thanks Suyash
Mehta's 5 days trip to LadakhNo doubt received excellent service from traveltriange as well Kailash expedition. We were there family's traveled through TT and Kailash. Leh Ladakh memorable 5 days 4 nights trip. Cab drivers were very humble and given us on time service. Hotel in lah and nubra valley both are very good hotels Specially hotel stone hage was superb at nubra valley Very good location and services. Thanks both the team TT and Kailash expedition specially mr stanzin to arrange perfect holiday for us.
Suresh's 4 days trip to LadakhWe had a fabulous experience in Leh despite the high altitude sickness and unexpected extreme cold temperature. Notable thanks to the hotel staffs especially at Chalung Hotel as the staffs we’re courteous and helpful. The real hero of the trip was our driver Mr Rizgin who took extra care of us and he knew exactly how to handle the altitude sickness we were under. Nonetheless, we didn’t have quite a good experience with the travel agency Kailash Expedition as we had some payment issue with them. Our International mobile lines did not work even on roaming. This has somewhat crippled us from making any online payment using credit card and it was too large sum of cash to carry with us (INR30k). ATM withdrawal seemed like a practical choice but our visa debit card was disabled since we hit the withdrawal limit trice (who knew their single withdrawal limit was INR10k). The travel agency did not have their own credit card terminal and we even requested them if we could pay online as soon as we arrive Delhi where our mobile line will work and we can receive the OTP to make credit card payment but they rejected our humble request. Instead we were forced to pay the balance amount using a credit card terminal which belongs to another shop and they charged us an exorbitant INR2250 as extra charge for using the credit card.
