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!
