 Dining in Leh

Main Bazaar has a few sweet shops selling samosas, chana dhal with puri, and other Indian junk food in addition to the sweets. The shopping areas of the old town and the area around the bus station are good for Tibetan styled restaurants, although few offer more than thukpa (noodle soup) and momos (dumplings). Vegetarian dishes are difficult to find in these places.

  • Lamayuru Restaurant
  • German bakery

You can enjoy some great fresh baked breads with honey and cheese in the main market of Leh.

Main Bazar has a decent selection of mid range Tibetan styled restaurants, popular with tourists and locals. In the summer numerous garden restaurants spring up in Changspa serving Tibetan, Western, and Indian dishes.


 Drinking in Leh

There is little in the way of nightlife in Leh. You can order a beer at many of the restaurants, but they close fairly early. For a more adventurous alternative, ask around the old town (or your guest house owner) for Chang the local home brew beer. It goes for about 15 INR for a liter; bring your own bottle.
There are a few springs scattered around Leh that provide a natural and plastic free alternative to using bottled water.

Clean filtered and boiled water is available from shops, such as the organic food shop, and guest houses.

 Shopping in Leh

Main Bazaar and the surrounding streets have numerous shops selling souvenirs, mostly Tibetan antiques.

There are half a dozen good book shops with an excellent range of books on the Himalayas, including guidebooks, phrasebooks, books on history, and on Buddhism, as well as novels.

People needing to pick up some warm clothing shouldn't miss out on the second hand clothing bazaar near the jeep stand. Quality used clothing from first world countries goes for next to nothing here, especially handy if you are only in the cooler climate for a little while.

Leh also has the best selection of food for trekking albeit not all that different from normal instant noodles, biscuits, powdered milk and chocolate that's available in any village with a shop, but with the addition of fresh and dry fruit and veggies, and a few other luxury foods.
Leh is a good place to pick up Pashmina shawls. On a good day, you can pick up one for about Rs. 3500 or less.
