Shopping in Leh
If you love collecting souvenirs, Leh has much to offer. There are numerous shops sprawled throughout the Main Bazaar, which have a huge collection of Tibetan curios.
Interestingly, books are also aplenty and available at around six decently stocked bookshops. Ranging from travel guides to Buddhist philosophies, these books are sought after by tourists who visit Leh.
Since Leh can be really cold in the evenings, you can check out the second hand clothes bazaar thats located near the taxi/jeep stand and buy some handy warm clothes at throwaway prices.
Visit the Kashmiri shops if you are looking for Pashmina shawls, blankets and even heavy woolen socks, although you will need to bargain a lot to refrain from being cheated.
