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

Morning breakfast is the ideal as they give you freshly made gobi parathas acquired from their own organic garden.Please try booking... More

It was an amazing experience at Raku. The hosts are extremely warm and willing to share stories about Ladakhi culture and about their own lives and families. The rooms are extremely spacious, clean and well lit. Hot water is always available and the drinking water is extremely clean ground water. Location is perfect as it is far away enough from... More

If you are not comfortable with noice of market & still u want to stay nearby to it with homely experience than "raku" is best choice. Homely & heavenly experience. Rooms are very nice, food is very fresh & its of our choice. This family is always helping in shopping, travelling tips....etc. I think raku is best choice for me.
