Wonderful! just simply Wonderful!

Amazing Hosts. Wonderful place. We loved our visit and will have a long memory of Laddakh in our lives because of great hotel staff. Don't forget to ask for Dorjee driver for your taxi travel. One of the best driver I have every driven with (and you will need it because of rough terrain). I could trust him with my family in car on treacherous Himalayan roads and a whole bunch of aggressive drivers around.

The property is very comfortably located in Shey village away from the hustle of Leh. Thats what i liked the most. Since the property is new, they have to work a lot on the basic facilities and comfort for a kind of hotel that is located in an extreme altitude like conditions. Mostly it will serve travelers who may require far more greater comfort than what at present it is serving. Even the complimentary breakfast is mundane though they may fuse local cuisines which are more popular. The Manager is a wonderful person and very helpful. Logistics, travel operation guy was very helpful and good too. For that thanks to the hotel management.
