Like virtually all previous reviewers, my wife, 19 and 23 y.o. daughters, and I found our stay (in March 2014) at Navek-La the pinnacle of our visit to India. We have traveled a lot (my wife is a French Professor so we've spent many visits in Europe) and Navek-La was among the most restful, peaceful, nurturing and enjoyable places we... More

We were there in Navek-La country home from 01/01/14 to 04/01/14 and the facility, hospitality, natural surrounding and home care with warmth were found to be exemplary. Army touch was found everywhere.

Navek La is run by a couple, Mrs. Sandhu and Brigadier Jodhbir Singh Sandhu who are wonderful, attentive hosts and well-informed conversationalists. They are what make Navek La a 'home'stay and hence very different from an impersonal hotel. The landscaping, the sensational view and the amazingly lightly cooked food only add to the experience. Throughout the duration of our stay,... More

We were seven people in the group - my brother's family, my family, and our mother - visiting Dharamshala in late June of this year. We were traveling in North India for a week, and stayed at Navek-la for three nights. Without doubt, those three days were the most memorable part of our trip. The home is beautiful and tranquil....

Welcome to India! You try telling your driver after a full day on the twisty road from Shimla that you're staying with an Indian family. "No, ma'am - never heard of this homestay - you must mean the Norbulingka Buddhist Guesthouse....." "No, it begins with "N" - that's "N" for "Navek-La"....." Hours later, having been reeled in by mobile phone,... More

Looking at the navek-la website is promising but the place is far more wonderful. At the very start the warmth and hospitality of the owners is touching and makes the place a perfect mix of home and away. The landscaping that mrs Sandhu has done - and put in all her love and many years to do - is utterly... More

The warmth & care that the hosts showed was just amazing! Mrs. Sandhu pours her heart and soul when she cooks & serves the meals! Dinner use to be a feast! Right... More

Navek la - We, 3 families went there in month of may 2013 with 6 kids after reading positive reviews on trip advisor. It was such a disaster that I don't even want to recall the experience. We reached in evening and kept waiting for tea and milk for kids for at least an hour or so before they told... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, this helps us prepare better for our future guests. Although its most unfortunate to be at the receiving end of such a scathing review. This review officially ends our winning streak, it was beautiful while it lasted :)! I am afraid there are a few factual errors in your account.... More

I had gone to Navek La for four days with my family - husband, two children, maid, and my parents - and ended up extending our stay by one day thanks to the warmth and hospitality exuded by the owners. It's their home and for the few days that we stayed there, they made sure it was ours too...in the... More
