Shanti Guest house was recommended by a dear friend and it turned out to be much more than its name. The rooms are sparsely furnished and basic amenities like hot water, electricity, clean beds are ensured. Our visit was quite close to the beginning of winter and most of the places in Leh were shut with majority of the staff... More

This place is maintained by a family who are very warm to their guests who are visiting .Service quality is very good which includes food. They have cozy heating system that helped... More

This place goes by its name, it is really peaceful place, just outside of main Leh market and en-route to Shanti Stupa. The walk to this place from main market is not demanding and one can enjoy cold wind blowing :-). Provides home cooked food and their staff just like the owner of the place are really helpful. Had a... More

We stayed here for a night. Very nice place next to Shanti Stupa. Food was also ok. It is little off the main market but it's a good walk. Would recommend this place for youngsters and couples. Host is very friendly. recommended

Very friendly staff who went out of their way on many levels to look after us including bringing hot water bottles up to the room and packing breakfasts when we had early morning starts. Food was delicious - home cooked food in quantities that we could never finish - not matter how hard we tried. A comfortable walking distance from... More

Shanti guesthouse is in a beautiful location, right below the Shanti Stupa temple, with a view of the surrounding mountains in the distance. The neighbourhood, Changspa, was peaceful and mostly populated with other guesthouses and hotels. As it was almost winter and off-peak season for tourists, that could explain why the area was so silent and lovely. Changspa is about... More

Had this guest house booked through "A Lifetime trip" (http://www.alifetimetrip.com/). It is a quiet, cozy place, slightly away from the Leh Market place and very good for a peaceful vacation. Food was good, and rooms were very well maintained. Overall, a nice home like experience !

The name says it all "Shanti"-the Peace & Tranquility you will come across while your stay at this place. As I entered the place (20th Sep-25th Sep), I was seriously brought to another world by the aura it is surrounded by. You just sit in between loaded Apple Trees, have the sumptuous meal, and the undisturbed sleep would make every... More

Had a group booked in before and after a 9 day trek in the local area. The guest house is in a great location just a 10 minute walk from the main part of town but far enough away so that the noise does not disturb those wanting to sleep. The guest house is fairly basic but great value, staff... More
