The high altitude and dry climate of Ladakh, India result in wonderful night skies where you can identify numerous stellar objects. This makes it a region perfect for Astro-tourism. Mountain Homestays identified this clear night sky as a resource available to the locals that has a huge potential for creating opportunities for livelihood. Mountain Homestays has created Astrostays in various villages of Ladakh by installing high-end sophisticated telescopes. The local women running these homestays are not just trained in hospitality but also in operating the telescopes and reading the night sky.
