GURDWARA SHRI PATTHAR SAHIB: The
Shrine known as Gurdwara Patthar sahib is situated about 25 kms. Short of Leh
town on the Leh-Srinagar road. Built in the everlasting memory of Shri Guru
Nanak Deve Ji the great prophet who sanctified the place by his sacred visit
during the year 1517 while on his second missionary tour (2nd Udassi
1515-1518). The Guru reached here via Nepal, Sikkim, Tibet Yarkand and Leh
after having spiritual discourses with the sidhas at Mount Sumer (Central
Himalayas). On the hill features across the road, there used to live a wicked
demon that terrorized the people of the area. Their miseries multiplied day by
day. As their miseries became unbearable they prayed for divine help. It is
said that the Great Guru heard their woes and came to their rescue. The Guru
settled down on the bank of the river flowing nearby. The people sought for
help and the Guru blessed the people and became very popular in the area. The
locals called him as Nanak Lama. The Demon got enraged and started making plans
to kill Guru Nanak. One morning, when the Guru was sitting in meditation, he
rolled down a big boulder from the hilltop with the aim of killing the Guru.
But on the very touch of Guru’s body, the solid rock melted like wax and Guru’s
back got embedded on it like a cushion. The Guru kept on sitting in meditation
undisturbed. Thinking that the Guru must have been killed, the demon came down
but was taken aback on seeing the Guru in meditation, undisturbed. With a rage
of anger he tried to push the rock with his right foot but the rock had already
became like wax his foot also got embedded into it. On this , he realized his
folly and powerlessness as compared to the spiritual power of the Great Guru.
He fell on the feet of Guru and humbly prayed to be pardoned. The Guru advised
him to get rid of his wickedness and lead the life of a nobel person, in the
service of humanity. This changed the life style of demon and he started
serving the people. The Guru there after continued his Holy journey towards
Srinagar and Kashmir via Kargil.
The boulder having imprint of the Guru’s back is lying in the Gurdwara to his

ALCHI GOMPA: 70 Kms from Leh, on the
banks of the Indus, is the Alchi Gompa dating a thousand years back. One of its
walls features thousands of miniature sized pictures of the Buddha. Three large
sized images made of clay and painted brightly are its focal attractions. No
longer an active religious center, it is looked after by monks from the Liker
monastery. This is the only monastery amongst 34 monasteries, which is not
located on a hilltop.
LADAKH HALL OF FAME : The Hall of
Fame is a glorious museum constructed by the Indian Army. It is worth a visit
for every citizen. You can see the memorabilia, eminent defense personalities
with biographies, images and weapons used during the Kargil and other key
strategic battles fought in Ladakh. And belongings of the enemy soldiers found
at war site. All the martyr and the gallantry awards…
“Here’s something that you will be proud of our defense personnel who
sacrificed themselves so that we could live in peace.”

the both sides of the pass. Khardong is the first village of Nubra valley at
higher altitude than Deskit and other villages.

THE PANGONG LAKE : This route takes the
visitor past the picturesque villages of Shey and Thikse, and turns off the
Indus valley by the side valley of Chemrey and Sakti. The Ladakh range is
crossed by the Chang-la (18,000 feet / 5,475 M) which despite its great
elevation is one of the easier passes, remaining open for much of the year even
in winter, apart from periods of actual snowfall. Tangse, just beyond the foot
of the pass, has an ancient temple.
But the main attraction of this circuit is the Pangong Lake, situated at 14,000
feet (4,267 M). A long narrow basin of inland drainage, hardly six to seven
kilometers at its widest point to which foreigners are permitted, is only some
seven km along the southern shore from the head of the lake, but it affords
spectacular views of the mountains of the Changchenmo range to the north, their
reflection shimmering in the ever-changing blues and greens of the lakes
brackish water. Above Spangmik are the glacier and snow-capped peaks of the
