My friend & I chose Raku Guest House for our first visit to Leh, & are so happy we did! Having a relatively short amount of time to stay in Leh, we went back and forth on our plans for driving trips and/or a short trek. We weren't sure how well we'd acclimate so we didn't set any activity plans... More
