The Leh Market
Story about this
Take a break from all the adventuring and sight-seeing and turn your Ladakhi vacation into a fun-filled shopping fest at the Leh market. You will be completely boggled by the colourful little shops selling beautiful Pashmina shawls, stoles, Pashmina wool garments and precious handmade woollen socks, gloves, caps, sweaters etc. from locally made industries. You can also make a visit to the Ladakh Art Palace that sells exquisite Tibetan Handicrafts and Jewellery. There is also Gol Market which boasts of a large collection of clothing items, bags etc. If you are still not satisfied, there are always the makeshift Tibetan refugee markets that unfortunately offer goods at high prices. The Leh Market is an assortment of authentic Leh-Ladakhi style items like handwoven rugs, carpets and shawls with amazing floral, geometric patterns or special dragon motifs that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
The bazaars and markets of Leh sell interesting curios and souvenirs that you can take back home to friends and family to cherish a wonderful vacation for a lifetime. Tourists go berserk at Leh Market and the spirit of holidaying is intensified by the eye-catching, bright colours of the cobbled streets calling out to customers. The Buddhist Thangka House sells ‘thangkas’, Ladakhi hats and unique jewellery. If you are looking for camping gear, Gol Market is the right place to get a large number of handy items at cheap prices
