We stayed here for 5 days in August. We enjoyed our visit immensely. The owner, Sonam and his wonderful family seem to work hard to find a balance between making the place comfortable for visitors, while still retaining a strong sense of the traditional Ladakhi culture. This is especially important at a time when Leh appears to be changing quite... More

We are a family with 3 children (12, 10 and 2 1/2 years) and spend a wonderful time at Silver Cloud Guesthouse. During our 1 month stay in Ladakh we returned 4 times to this unique place in Leh. It was always like coming home. Although the guesthouse is not in the center, we all enjoyed the beautiful and easy... More

After an arduous journey from Srinigar, I arrived at Silver Cloud as a clear Sunday turned into a crisp Ladakh night. I was met at the gates by Stanzin, the attentive son of the charasmatic local owner. Despite a ful guest house and no confirmed boking, the family recognised my plight as a lone traveller and temporarily accomodated me in... More

Coming back to Silver Cloud from the fantastic 3 day trek with Tsensen they organised for us felt like coming home. The guest house staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful, the beautiful gardens are really peaceful and restful, our room is immaculate and comfortable, and the home cooked meals were healthy, plentiful and delicious. I wish I could stay longer!

My friend and I have stayed at Silver Cloud for 3 nights and couldn't be happier with our choice. The family who run it are warm and welcoming and bent over backwards to help us. The traditional meals are delicious and good value. We had a lovely garden room which was light and airy. The location is great. It is... More

I felt very secured to this place, nice family. .. you really can trust them ;-) Unfortunately I agree with the no. 3 and 4 of the previous reviews ( to many mistakes to soon). To me hot water and WiFi was an issue. Also, the food is over pricy compare to downtown, but anyway it's nice to have the... More

We stayed here for five nights during the high season, and I do believe all the staff was very nice and really meant well. However, too many things went wrong for us to come out with a good impression - and Sonam's eagerness to please (while well-intentioned) ended up being very upsetting at times. A few of our complaints: 1.... More

My wife and I traveled in India for the month of June in 2014. Starting our trip in the south, we made our way through the heat and the crowds ending up, amazingly and perfectly, at the Silvercloud Guest House in Sankar, Ladakh. Everything about this house is quite simply beautiful. First, the most basic beauty is the scenery surrounding... More

I spent several days at the Silver Cloud over a three weeks period in early June of 2014. My rooms were very comfortable and clean. Sonam, Padma and family took very good care of my friends and me. The food was wonderful. We enjoyed eating breakfast in the sun on the terrace overlooking the garden. We travelled to the Nubra... More
