I stayed almost 3 months at Jigmet's guesthouse. Sonam and her family are warm and loving people, always ready to do whatever it takes to make their guests happy. They are old-school Ladakhis, concerned first of all for the well-being of others. The rooms are spacious, with large windows opening to a lovely courtyard and immaculately clean.

And the new rooms which are built in the main building is amazing & the main surprise is its price. At such low price you get chance... More
