  • I became Mountain Homestay Host in 2018 and have hosted many travelers since then. Running homestay has been very beneficial for me and my family. The solar set up in our house not only is useful for us but even travelers prefer staying in our homestay due to the availability of this facility

  • The astronomy training turned out to be a life-changing event for my village. I felt happy and proud while explaining the planets and the secrets of the universe to the tourists. Tourists told me that even they didn’t know so much about the Dark skies.

Absolutely great experience traveling to this beautiful location. The homestay was comfortable and family very hospitable. We spent great time in the village and also learnt to make our own copper handicraft.

Incredible experience. Really an Un-Travelled corner in Himalayas, with clean rooms, great food and a brilliant host. The village is full of surprises. The local artisans make beautiful copper handicraft and showed is artwork that was truly vintage. A memorable stay that you gotta experience if you are going all the way to Ladakh.
