Leh is the capital of Ladakh, lies nestled among low hills on the north side of the Indus Valley, between the Stok Mountains to the south and the Ladakh Range to the north, for centuries it has been a place where travelers of different nationalities have rested, In the 15th century both Leh and the village of Shey shared the responsibility of being the capitals of Upper Ladakh, Shey was the more fortified of the two, while Leh was in the prime position for trade. The towns growth in importance is relegated by the building of the first royal residency on top of Namguyal peaks. Leh's prosperity derived from its location at the foot of the Khardung La, the gateway of the infamous trade route to Yarkand in Turkistan. The trade involved the people of Leh at all levels, a few undergoing the rigorous journey over the mountains themselves, some merely setting up as merchants. Rest of the day will be at leisure to get used to the rarefied air of Ladakh. Relax and acclimatize with the altitude. In the evening you can take a small walk in the market.
