Where to Stay in Ladakh


Featuring Ladakh’s luxe hotels, homestays, and B&Bs

If you want to travel to Ladakh obviously you need a stay. So the question is “Where to Stay in Ladakh ?”.

5 Gorgeous hotels in Ladakh

Hotel Omasila

One of the oldest hotels of Leh, Omasila has long been the favorite of repeat Ladakh visitors, with a dedicated fan following that only grows each season. The wooden floors, old-world Ladakhi decor, and a phenomenal terrace with an abundance of flowers overlooking the mountain view are what folks love most about it. It’s also one of the few hotels that stay open through the stark Ladakhi winter and is a great option for those there for the unique ice hockey matches, the Chadar trek, or other winter trails.

Zeepata Guesthouse

Tucked in a maze in Upper Changspa, Zeepata guesthouse is a little tricky to find if you’re headed there the first time. It is worth the search though, for Leh is brimming with plenty of budget spots but few have the right mix of quietude, local hospitality, global interaction, and privacy. The rooms are cozy and some also have shared bathrooms, but are spotless. The place is ideal for backpackers who prefer to stay away from traveler ghettos for a more mellow experience.

The Grand Dragon Ladakh
