To experience true Ladakhi hospitality you need to stay in the Yurt (A yurt is a portable, felt-covered, wood lattice-framed dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. A yurt is more home-like in shape and build, with thicker walls than that of a tent. They are popular amongst nomads) The resort is spread over 5 acres of natural greenery with beautiful view of Stok monastery. The yurts are equipped with all modern amenities like running water and heating. Your local host Lotus Sandhup, born into a Shepard family in Stok village, Ladakh, in the shadow of the massive Stok Kangri (6200m.),  has always been inspired by the great Ladakhi and Himalayan ranges. Lotus has worked in Rural Development in Ladakh for 2 years, thereafter with a United Kingdom based travel company for 10 years before  founding this dream venture. Lotus is a keen climber, avid bird watcher, and nomad at heart guiding groups all over Nepal and India. He is the first guide to take an international group to Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh in north–east India.

The Core–team of Lotus and Angchuk is backed by experienced staff who are always at hand to make your stay comfortable. We can guarantee that staying here will be a memorable experience which you will cherish for a lifetime.

Message from the host: We run our property with experience friendly staff, who will take good care of all the guest. We will make sure that they will have a memorable life time experience with us.

How to Reach

Air : Indian Airlines and Jet Airways operate daily flights between Leh and Delhi

Road : The two popular routes to Leh are from Srinagar via Kargil on the Srinagar-Leh Highway and from Manali via Sarchu and Dharchu on the Manali-Leh Highway. These routes are only open from June to October. The respective night halts on the two routes are Kargil and Sarchu. There are regular bus and Tata Sumo services to Leh.

About Location

The vibrant wonder land that will take you into a world where white snowfall will greet you, whose beauty will leave you spell bound and the influential culture will impress you with its profound history. Known for its pure atmosphere, crystal clear lakes and blue skies, Ladakh is a region of the northernmost state of India, Jammu and Kashmir. It is a mountainous land bounded by Kunlun Mountain Range in the north and the Great Himalayan range in the south. The exquisiteness of this land cannot be described into terms. Here, in Ladakh, one will be amazed to see that how live and colorful a raw, barren and a desolate land can actually be!

The compelling charisma and splendor of this place attracts a lot of tourists round the globe as its barren mountain ranges has been one of the most unreachable and forbidding regions of the world. Many missionaries, traders and explorers who crossed this land imbibed it with a fascinating union of age old religions, a well-off cultural history and varied ethnic influences. Its soaring mountains, age old monasteries (gompas), spectacular landscapes, snow peaked radiant glaciers, sparkling rivers are the reason for its mystical beauty. This beautiful state has an equally beautiful capital, Leh which is situated in the Indus river valley.

My wife and 4-yr old daughter arrived late in the afternoon after a two day drive from Srinagar. We'd requested a meals plan that included breakfast and dinner, but not lunch. And yet, the  team scrambled to feed us a sumptuous late lunch. We were very grateful, and frankly pleasantly shocked when we weren't even charged for it on the last day.
The yurts were fantastic - gorgeous views of the Himalayas (and a yak!), very comfortable even though a little dusty. The food was pretty good - the cook made valiant (and often, worthy!) attempts at cooking Italian, Lebanese and mexican the nights we were there. 
The warmth and generosity that Rigzin, the owner of the place, has translates to every single one of the staff. Our daughter was pampered to no end, and as a parent, that means everything to us. I also run a travel site ( so have experience with this space.
Given the dump that Leh city itself can be, I don't think there's even a close second to this.R. T. - Bangalore

My wife and I stayed there for ten days. It was awesome. The yurts were so comfortable, cosy and warm. Delicious tea was brought to our room around the clock. The staff were all lovely, especially the owner Rigzin, who went out of his way to make sure we were happy and had plenty to do. Hiking, sightseeing, lake visits etc. A must visit for all adventurers who like a small community vibe. We'll be back for sure! Cheers Riggy, Pete & Nina - Mumbai

This was definitely my favourite hotel in India. We stayed for a week. The location is really neat, since its situated away from the city and you can stay in yurts which is pretty fun. The views are spectacular as well.
The staff were really great, and the owner is a really helpful and fun chap who is widely available to provide advice on what to check out.
What was really great was the common tables to socialize with other travellers, it makes it a more common experience and an opportunity to share stories. A really memorable experience. I can see why many people return time and time again.James Watson - Canada

I went to Ladakh with my 2 best friends. From the moment we stepped into Ladakh Sarai we felt the warm, down to earth hospitality and the peace of the hotel. To the point we really thought 'there has to be something wrong with this place, it's too perfect!'...luckily this never proved to be true. We stayed in one of the new cabins which was really comfortable, warm enough and has a great bathroom. The view from our room was phenomenal. 
The food was mostly excellent and really reflects true Indian hospitality by offering you more and more than you could ever need to eat! The layout of the dining room is really cool as it's in a circle and it encourages you to be social with the other guests. We met so many amazing people also staying there and certainly made some friends for life. 
The staff at Ladakh are warm, friendly and will always go the extra mile. We made friends with both the owners Rigzin and Mr Lotus who when you meet them it is glaringly obvious why this is such a special place. One night we were there Rigzin had organised a dinner with 200 nuns as the hotel was in low season which was quite a special site to see! 
For true insider knowledge of the area this is the place to go. Rigzin helped us tailor make our stay in Ladakh with different activities available, always going the extra mile to make it special. We did a trip to Pangong lake which was the most stunning place I've ever seen with my own eyes where we stayed at the camp there also owned by Sarai. The camp was very peaceful (although we were a bit unlucky with a huge party of 30 there at the time, but it was so peaceful once they left!) Facilities are good there for a camp and it's out of the way from all the other tourist spots (although expect a bumpy road to get there because of this!), all the tents have their own bathrooms, loads of covers on the beds with hot water bottles inside, so I didn't really get cold during the night, though others said they did. Do make sure you acclimatise yourself to the altitude before going here though as it's very high up and drink loads and loads of water, my friends boyfriend got quite sick from altitude but luckily they are very expert about what to do and have all the right equipment like an oxygen tank etc. to prevent anything becoming dangerous. 
Back to Sarai...don't expect mega 'luxury' in terms of facilities, when I think about it, it is quite basic, but the luxury really comes in the service you are given. The experience of being in this special place for 6 days will never leave me and I'm sure I will be back! Don't stay -----anywhere else in Ladakh! London

Our Background: My husband and I love to travel around the world, especially the Himalayan belt. Doing Ladakh and Kashmir was always a dream for us and we actually never thought that it might just come true. Usually 9/10 times we travel with our own car and this time was no exception. We had made the bookings with Mr Rigzin a couple of months back before June via phone. He had confirmed our reservations with absolutely zero down payments. Yes this is the level of trust he has on people! Remarkable virtue!
The property: By the time you have driven down to this property you would have gaped a thousand times at the vastness of the Himalayas, taken innumerable photos of the rivers, happy children, snow-capped mountains... marvelled at literally everything your eyes fell upon. Yet more surprise will await you when you enter through the gates of Ladakh Sarai..The property has a huge badminton court area and playing badminton at 12000 feet will give you a separate high in itself. Also loved the twin sized hammocks tied to the trees. 
The Rooms: There are no rooms. You have Yurts instead of rooms. They are huge Mongolian tents with all the amenities that you can think of. It has a big king size bed, a seating area, an attached bathroom, a changing area, a makeshift closet and also flat screen TV with dish connectivity! I can actually do away with them because I do not watch television while travelling. The host: Mr Rigzin is one of the most humble people that I have ever met! He is a genuinely warm person who will try to help you with all his means. If you want, he will make a customized map for your trip adding places which are usually not mentioned anywhere on the web. He has friendly staffs that take care of the place. They can converse both in English and in Hindi.
The Cuisine: Breakfast comes along with the package - generally eggs, toast, Indian food(puri sabzi, paratha, idli), tea, coffee, fruits and juices that you will found nowhere else. He will serve you Sea buckthorn juice which is one of the best fruit juices that I have ever had and you should absolutely not miss it ! I carried bottles while travelling back home. Tea and Coffee is served whole day. Dinner is a gala affair. He serves like a 7 course meal every night. Everyone sits around large tables and eats together. Food is served on big plates and Rigzin will ensure that he pleases every one’s taste buds. You will get variety from continental to Middle Eastern to Indian to Asian. Overall highly recommended! Rajsri Dey - Kolkata

The is no hot shot five star resort. It is instead a wilderness hideaway on top of the world. Snug high roof tents, home cooked goodies, solar heating, breathtaking views define the sarai. Head for the sarai with a wishlist to explore Ladakh, leave the rest to the never say never hospitality of Rigzin Namgyal. Ravinder Singh - Amritsar
