Stay at the last village of India
Warshi is the last village on the newly opened Siachen route. The village and homestay are situated very close to the Siachen River and provides tremendous views of the Siachen Valley. Warshi is home to one family that has lived there for three generations. The head of the family, who is now 72 years old, has also served in the Indian Army. After retiring from the services, he is happily settled in his village and staying with his family. The infectious smile and warmth of the family turn this only house of the village into a much-desired home for the people coming from far corners of the world. Travelers can either stay or stop here to enjoy an authentic Ladakhi lunch on a day trip from Hunder.
Your host Konchok Rabgais served at the Siachen Glacier and has several stories of surviving on one of the highest battlefields of the world. Considering the chatterbox that he is, a day at his homestay is never enough. He is 72 years old and lives with his mother who is never without his prayer wheel. Staying with this family in such a location is nothing less than bliss!
The hosts serve delicious local Ladakhi delicacies tweaked to suit all palates, along with a standard spread of roti, dal, rice, and vegetables. The freshly cooked meals are served in typical Ladakhi dining set up around the Bukhari. A true farm-to-table experience, all vegetables are organically grown in the village! Please inform us in advance though, if you have any specific requirements or allergies.
The village is situated very closed to the Siachen river and provides tremendous views of the Siachen Valley. As its identity mentions, the village is very close to the last checkpoint of India. Travelers can visit one of the hidden attractions – Yarma Gompa on the way to this village. The region that stayed isolated for so many decades, is still in its raw form with some good basic provisions required to make the visit comfortable and safe.

Are you choosing this homestay because you need some time away from your urban life? Does living in a mud house in the mountains truly excite you? If your answer is yes, start packing your bags now! You might not get uninterrupted internet here, but you’ll be far too busy exploring the most breathtaking, most unseen corners of the trans-Himalayas, to miss your Twitter feed and news updates. The greatest luxury here is spending your days under a bright, blue sky at a beautiful mountain destination, getting freshly cooked organic food for every meal, and swapping stories with locals, who open their doors and hearts to you!
Guests like to eat our Ladakhi food. They say it is delicious, even when it is prepared by an elderly ama (mother) like me. I always make sure I serve them the cleanest and healthiest food. My husband is a copper artist. When guests leave us, they say ‘Julley’, and hug us. It makes us feel happy.
I became a Mountain Homestay Host in 2018, and I have hosted many travellers since then. Running a homestay has helped me and my family a lot. Not only is the solar set up in our house useful for us, but even travellers prefer to stay in our homestay because of it.
The training we got in astronomy turned out to be a life-changing experience for our village. I felt happy and proud while mapping the position of the planets and sharing the secrets of the universe with the tourists. Tourists told me that even they didn’t know so much about the dark skies!
Being the last village in the terrain and their home being the only home in the village, we cannot even begin to understand the efforts it must take to arrange for everything. And yet the family has maintained a beautiful homestay. Everything is super high quality and they take care of the tiniest thing a traveller may need! Achi le and Acho le are very welcoming and Amma le, Abba le would give you the feel of being in the company of your grandparents. very loving, caring and amazing people. It was one of our best experiences in the whole of Ladakh. The food, hospitality, super cozy rooms, serenity around and the beautiful people would make you want to stay longer! Thankyou for everything! Coming back next year for sure!
Beautiful setting, warm hosts and farm fresh apple and vegetables.
When we arrived here Tsering family told us that the homestay is not ready to host us only. Ms. Tsering and her mother are there, they would not be able to arrange everything but when we requested them badly and agree to stay here with whatever they can provide, they whole heartedly welcomed us and the experience after that was heavenly different. we faced a glimpse of hardship they face everyday along with the exquisite close view of mother nature, definitely this memory of Warshi will stay in our heart as green forever. Special mention for tasty, hot food and butter tea by Ms. Tsering.
Tsering and family ensures to make the hardship of this land simplify for us the urban dwellers. The food is cooked by Ms. Tsering and believe you me the best food one can think of on this difficult and isolated terrain of Warshi. Conversely, the family can’t do all of it by themselves with challenges from all the aspects in life. we strongly recommend visitors to help the family for upselling their services full of warmth.
