I had travelled to Ladakh in the first week of September 2013 and had taken a special tour package through Cox & Kings. We had been checked-in at Kang La Chen for the first 4 days of our trip. The first thing that grabs your attention the moment you step into the gate of the hotel is the beautiful view... More

Rather than a 'luxury' stay at the Grand Dragon, the best way to explore Leh is from Kang La Chen. Specific hot water timings, small, but clean and comfortable and cozy rooms and relatively good food are a few features of Kang La Chen. It may not give you luxury, but it gives you the true essence of Leh and... More

The hotel is well maintained and and has a cosy feel to it. It is located right next to the Leh market, which is great. The staff was very good, and gave us personalised, yet professional, service. One drawback was that hot water was not available 24 hrs and another that the room windows were not well sealed from sound... More

The hotel is just off the market area, close enough to stroll around without actually being in the hustle bustle of the market. The rooms are nice and there is a central courtyard like area to relax under Apricot trees. Hot water is on a specific time table, which is annoying when its cold most of the time. The restaurants...

I'll prefer to stay in Kang La Chen again if I plan for Leh again. Rooms are good, clean, hot water available but after 2-3 reminders to reception. Location is great, very near to main market. If you're a foodie and a sweetaholic, search for a Jalebi shop in the market nearby to the hotel.

Our stay at Kang Lha Chen for 5 nights, 1 night accommodation at Ulhe Eco Resort, one night accomodation at Tirith Camp, Airport transfers was all organized perfectly. The hotel even applied for our permit to Changla Pass... More
