While driving through the rugged terrain of ladakh, days are usually spent on the road and visiting various sites .. If you end the day in a lovely property in a beautiful location it enhances the overall experience of road trip many fold .. Based on on regular visits to the region, we have handpicked the following hotels and camps to enhance your ladakh road trip experience.
Lets begin from Srinagar
Srinagar is a populated town but has a character, if you are a non veg food lover then you must spend a night here .. Go to khyaam chock and enjoy Coal fired kebabs which are so popular with the locals ..
For your stay you can stay at
Dar – Es – Salaam
A beautiful lake ( Nageen Lake ) facing boutique hotel run by the Khurram family. You will be looked after and you can also enjoy the shikara ride directly from the hotel
New York House Boat
Stay in a house boat is also an excellent experience especially sitting on the deck watching the sun rays glisten the lake water Or enjoying the serenity of the setting sun. Our recommendation is the beautifully designed New York Houseboat on Nageen Lake
While Srinagar has its charm but if you are a nature lover then just simply head to Sonamarg for the night halt.
Villa Himalaya, Sonamarg
The only boutique hotel which is right on the river roughly 12 kms before Sonamarg in a quaint village of Kulan. The 3 rooms face the river with a lawn in front. You must choose these rooms over other. The soothing sound of the river is like a symphony taking your experience to another level.
Your next halt on the road trip to Ladakh is Kargil
While Zojilla Residency has been our trusted partner for over 4 years now, it provides good service and clean rooms to our guest but it certainly lacks style ..
A new property hotel chutuk heights have started operations from 2017 and we are excited about it. The location is brilliant, slightly away from the main town towards Zanskar so it is very peaceful and serene. Lets see how they manage the service of the guests
Your next halt after Kargil is Leh. Here is the list of best hotels in Leh
Ladakh Sarai, Leh
The best property is back with a bang, totally remade, more luxurious, premium fixtures and furniture, better style and of course more expensive then the previous avataar. Ladakh Sarai was always famous for its service before and since the owner is the same Rigzen, we have no doubt it will offer great service to the guests.
Saboo Resort, Leh
Another favourite of ours, excellent personalised service and great location in Saboo Village. Perfect for nature lovers
Grand Dragon, Leh
For people looking for Luxurious hotel, there is no better option then this. Open all year round, provides comfort like a a modern city hotel. The only thing we don’t like is its lack of space .. Its one large building with limited open space
Camping experience is a must on your trip to Ladakh
Desert Himalaya Resort, Diskit
Unmatched location , quality interiors and dining experience to match. Can’t expect more from a Camp
Pangong Hermitage, Mann ( Pangong Lake )
Starting 2017, enjoy luxury amidst the shore of most beautiful lake in the world @15,000 ft. Fully heated, luxurious camp
