Really well maintained lush green garden. Remarkably a pleasant stay overall. Will preferably stay there only on my next visit I.e most... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and it was such a memorable stay there. Rooms were good and had garden view which was just perfect. Special mention to the owner of the hotel - Stanzin who guided us for the local tour and even offered to lend his personal car for sight seeing, which was really sweet, a gesture. Food... More

It is little away from the main city, very beautiful, peaceful and home away from home. Food is excellent and service is very good. The couple who owns this stunning place make you feel very special and give personal touch. I loved the place.

Facing south onto a beautiful flowery garden with chairs, tables and hammocks, nice big rooms, heating, hot water, and plenty of good food, this is a family owned hotel. The hotel itself is lovely, but the management and staff make the experience special. They are kind and friendly and very helpful, really good people. The hotel is about 25 mins... More

Family owned with wonderful, local ambiance. Safe, quiet, lots of fresh air, good wi-fi, and wholesome and delicious food. The management can provide very helpful advice on access to health care, tours and guides, shopping, etc. We stayed at Hotel Shambhala for 10 nights. Our memories of Hotel Shambhala will always be a warm part of wonderful memories of Ladakh!

Some of the most helpful, polite and serviceminded staff I've met in all of India of the odd 30-some hotels I've visited. The location is a little off, but perfect for getting away from the bustling city streets. The staff will arrange to drop you off in the city center for free with just a few minutes notice.
