Shanti Stupa, literally means peace (Shanti) pillar (Stupa) established by a ‘Peace Sect’ of Japanese Buddhists, is situated above Changspa in Leh District of Jammu and Kashmir. It can be easily reachable from Fort road. The stupa was opened in 1985 by Dalai Lama with an intention of Spreading Buddhist ideology and teaching all through the world. This is a place which tells the world the need for peace and harmony among its population.

The stupa is very attractive with the sides are decorated with gilt panels showing the life stories of Great Buddha. The Stupa is accessible by trekking, jeeps or taxis. The surrounding is worth seeing with the enchanting views snowcapped mountains, spectacular unique styled Ladakhi houses and the towering Namgyal Tsemo Gompa.
