We had watched many documentaries on Leh, Ladkh but got the chance to visit it in November 2013. It is really cold, no denying it. Sunlight is there but there is no warmth. The scenic beauty is breathtaking and the cold mountains amaze you with their beauty. WE booked and stayed ta Yak Tail for our visit to Leh. Apart... More

India had always fascinated us. It’s culture, the traditions, the people, the Iife style and most of all, the beauty of the mountains and the plains that it held together. It is a country bound by traditions and scenic beauty where nature compliments the terrain. After watching numerous documentaries, we had decided we wanted to see India up close. Leh,... More

I and my friend were looking for a budget accommodation as we were on a budget for our trip to Leh and after reading the reviews on Trip Advsior, we decided to go for Yak Tail. I personally found the name funny to be honest. However all jokes aside, what really works for Yak is its location. It is very... More

The manager, Bobo, was really friendly and we would be served tea in the living room every time we would go... More

From our experience the Yak Tail is a very central place to stay and walk around the city. The owner and staff are very friendly and food is generally good. There are a lot of restaurants around the corner, why we didn't eat at the hotels restaurant too often though. Yet we have to say that the rooms are nice,... More

I'll write this as objectively as possible, as the place is a mixed bag. And seriously strange at the end. On the one hand, during my stay, I was treated extremely well. Bobo (Yousuf) owner was kind beyond words, and was extremely friendly and went beyond the call of duty in helping me. Customer service was excellent. On the other,... More

Right smack in the middle of Leh, perfect location to walk around the markets and eat in the nearby restaurants.rooms were nice enough. Service was good. There is a little garden to enjoy the weather when you first arrive.

We had to move hotels to this one and were so happy with the service, rooms and comfy beds. The view from the room was amazing and the location was wonderful. Friendly and happy staff with great wifi too.
