The Shey Monastery or Gompa and the Shey Palace complex are structures located on a hillock in Shey, 15 kilometres to the south of Leh in Ladakh, northern India on the Leh-Manali road. Shey was the old capital of the upper Ladakh region. When the Dogras of Jammu invaded Ladakh in 1842, the Namgyals abandoned the palace and fled to Stok (they made it their permanent residence) on the opposite side of the Indus River. It is conjectured that the fort found in ruins, not dated, above the present palace at Shey, belonged to this period of invasion. Subsequently, when the political dictates necessitated shifting of the capital to Leh, even then the importance of Shey continued since it was a mandatory requirement of the Namgyal kings to father their heir apparent here.
3 Idiot School - This school is also known as "The Druk White Lotus School" located in Shey, Ladakh, in northern India, and is known locally as the "Druk Padma Karpo School".

Leh Palace - Leh Palace is a former royal palace overlooking the town of Leh, Ladakh, in the Indian Himalayas. This palace was constructed circa 1600 by Sengge Namgyal.

It is nine storeys high, the upper floors accommodated the royal family, while the lower floors held stables and store rooms. Much of the palace is in deteriorated condition, and little survives of its interior decorations. The Palace Museum holds a rich collection of jewellery, ornaments, ceremonial dresses and crowns. Chinese thangka or paintings, which are more than 450 years old, with intricate designs still retain the bright colors derived from crushed and powdered gems and stones. Structures around the palace's base include the prominent Namgyal Stupa, the colourfully muralled Chandazik Gompa and the 1430 Chamba Lhakhang, with medieval mural fragments located between the inner and outer walls.

There are lots of Camps to choose for during Pangonk Lake Tour, some of them are as following :
Due to a variety of meteorological factors, this endorheic lake, which cannot drain anyplace, has a blue hue. The wavelength is also affected by the sun's rays. Red, because of its larger wavelength, absorbs quickly, whereas blue scatters. This is Physics' fundamental law. As a result, when the sun's white light enters the water, the blue is predominantly reflected back, giving the color a deep blue hue.
The depth of Pangong Lake is approximately 328 feet or 100 metres.
Situated at an altitude of 4.30m, it is world heighest saline lake. The maximum length of Pangong Lake is approximately 134 km or 81mi in length. Among this total length 60% area of the lake lies in China and rest 40% belong to India. The lake is roughly 5km wide. In winter entire lake freezes completely despite being saline in nature.
Pangong Lake is endorheic, which means that due to a small drainage basin, water cannot flow out of the lake. Since the beginning of time, this feature has allowed salts to remain in water. So, because of presence of salts, little evaporation (due to cold water), and nearly no drainage the water of the lake is salty.
Setting amidst the beautiful mountain ranges, Pangong Lake is best known for its alluring beauty, serenity and adventure. Located at high altitude (4,270m), this Lake is one of the prime attractions of Ladakh Tour.
Certainly! Around the lake, there are several camps with various amenities, ranging from basic to luxurious tents, cottages, and resort camps. Whatever camp accommodation you choose, the prime common thing is the spectacular view of blue lake outside from your windows. It is the best option to explore nature without any barriers.
Getting to Pangong Lake in winter is possible unless there is road block due to snowfall. The distance between Leh to Pangong Lake is almost 220km. It's a long 5 hrs journey with heavy SUV or Bike. The journey is smooth, but the only concern is road blocking if there is plenty of snowfall. Until roads gets cleared by BRO (Border Road Organization) or Indian Army, you can’t move an inch. But once you reach there, it’s a boon for your eyes and soul. You can behold the frozen lake under the thick sheet of snow. The surroundings and vicinity also remain covered under thick carpet of snow. So, before you plan to visit Pangong in winter, take adequate time and precautions before leaving.
Ladakh Package Tour with Pangong Lake should be planned from March to August. This is summer in Ladakh and best season to travel. After long freezing winter the temperature starts to rise and the harsh winter seems to subside. Although from April to Mid May tourist could still find snow. March is the month of the adventures like trekking and river rafting and many more for those who are interested.
