    Leh Palace.
    Leh Palace is a former royal palace overlooking the Himalayas.
    it resembles the Potala Palace in Lhasa , Tibet
    our hotel , Auspicious Hotel in Leh town

    comfortable heated room , hot water , TV , WiFi , good service.
    temperature during my time of visit in April is around 4-7 'C during daytime ,
    and -10 'C during the night.
    so having hot water and heated room is very helpful.
    Also having WiFi in hotel is very important because there is no phone line
    at all when roaming in Kashmir ( except for local  SIM card , and that also limited to
    phone calls only with no SMS and internet service )
    i like it. recommended.
