Unearthed ancient stupa & folklores about tantric

Traceback the Bronze Age in the secret village of Ladakh where the fort walls withstood the massive floods

Why we love this homestay?
  • Surrounded by ancient ramparts
  • Rock footprints of Buddhist tantric
Murgi Homestay

A few hours drive away from Ladakh’s most iconic Nubra region, along the Siachen River, lies a village that has successfully preserved the elements of history. The Bronze Age captured in red-brown crusted rocks, the fort walls built around the village, footprint of a tantric master Dachompa Nyima Gungpa who traversed from Murgi to Tibet, and the most recently unearthed ancient stupa – all these relics of the past are sitting in one village. The rock art/Petroglyph site here is the largest one in Ladakh. The village is full of legends about how a tantric could fly in the air, went to Tibet to build Lhasa Gompa, and left his footprint behind to denote his protest to build the most important monastery in this region. The village has faced many foods few generations back and many of these historic sites were buried down until a restoration team of Ladakh brought them back to life. Murgi, is undoubtedly a hidden heritage of Ladakh that yet to be explored!

Is this Homestay right for you?

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!

Hear from communities

  • 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!
