  • The famous 3 idiots school has a lot more than just being featured in the movie. The children here are so cute and studious that you can see the them studying in the football ground. Attached with the school building is a sort of museum where you can witness some of the amazing scientific projects made by them. At the other side of the compound there is a cozy cafe that servers a really good food. An important point to remember is the time here, it only gets opened till 6 PM in the evening after that you cannot go to the scientific area. There is also a small shop where you can get pictures clicked in the regional attire.
  • Also known as Ranchos school. The school has a small cafeteria where outsiders fill up their tummies, a shop where one can buy t-shirts or cups and a lot more things for themselves and gifting purpose. There's a shop to wear traditional attire of Ladakh and click pictures. There is washroom Tourists and we need to pay Rs. 10 but the washroom is not clean. Tourists are allowed only few areas of the school campus including the 3 Idiot movie Famous Pissing wall. Me and my friends enjoyed wandering around and clicking pictures The school is beautifully designed with main school building being at the entrance of the school and there many blocks like houses which are actually classrooms for various activities built as we pass from the walking pathway! These classrooms are uniquely names which one would enjoy reading! The school is said to be an eco- friendly school. You'll find a lot plantation in and around the campus.. One will Also find children enjoying studying together anywhere and everywhere
