The home for helpless donkeys, it is the sanctuary, situated just off the road leading to Khardungla Pass. The public is encouraged to visit the sanctuary and friendly signs will direct you to the sanctuary from the center of Leh. It is no more than a pleasant 5 to 10 minute stroll from the main road to the Sanctuary and the joyous surprise awaiting you is well worth the effort. It is open to the public throughout the day. Donations and juicy carrots are most welcome and used exclusively for improving the lives and welfare of these wonderful animals.
