    You can visit some of those popular monasteries viz. Shey, Thiksey & Hemis. Lamayuru can be done the next day for it lies in the western part. You can do the Khardungla pass considered the highest motor able road and enjoy fine views. Pangong (great sunset views) and Tso Morari lakes can be done.
    The Sham valley trek will probably consume another 3/4 days.
    You can stay at the Stok Palace or some of those lovely village houses. The Chamba Camp Thiksey is the ultimate in luxury but very expensive!
    However, the best way to arrive in Leh is by the old Hindustan-Tibet road, that passes through Simla - Rampur-Sangla. The green valley of Sangla is a treat to eyes and there are some fine hikes through the village, over the Baspa river to Chitkul. The waters may yet be clear for a days trout fishing!
    At Kaza there is a campsite from where you can do both Kee & Kibber. The Himalayan desert park (Pin valley) which you need to cross and the awe-inspiring glaciers of Chotta Darra, where the BRO is ever present to render a helping hand for the pass is narrow and snow makes it difficult to drive through.
    Happy travels!
    PS> I did this sector a good 15 years back and some fresh developments may have taken place, so do your research and go well prepared!

    Ladakh, a exquisite and beautiful place in the state of Jammu & Kashmir is the epitome of beauty because of the presence of Karakoram and Himalayan Range on either side. It is place of monasteries of architectural excellence, Tibetan Culture and magnificent and picturesque landscapes offers a great view and sight to its travellers. It is place of high lands and falls into the category of border area of India so it is required to have permits to visit inner parts of Ladakh, but only for foreign tourists, but to some part like Nubra Valley, Panggong Lake and Tso-Moriri Lake. They can get their permits from their travel agents.
    Now about the places to visit in Ladakh are as follows:
    1. Leh
    2. Khardungla Pass for Bike ride
    3. Magnetic Hill
    4. Monastries like Spituk Gompa, Namgyal Monastery, Hemis Monastery, Lamayuru Monastery, Likir Monastery.
    5. Shanti Stupa
    6. Leh Palace
    7. Tiger Hill etc.
    Ladakh is known as trekking destination so you can have your part of share in adventure at Sham, Indus and Spituk trek,Or you could just enjoy a day while experiencing the most calm and serene life in Ladakh by visiting their local markets and places and enjoy the local delicacies. Either way you would not be disappointed. So have great trip. Thanks
