the first thing that strikes you is its contrast with the landscape around it... not in any negative sense , just the building could belong to a chinese lover warlord that found peace in his later years...(not indian tibet) which also gives beauty and character to the the detail of this hotel which in the simplicity of ladakhi homes is somewhat refreshing to my complicated yet yearning for more mind. Then greeted by foreigners and local staff with TEA instantly calmed me.... after pleasentries ... shown room options, i was advised to drop bags and head to the roof for sunset, which without exageration was mind Blowing (nevermind the new hotel name "nomind homestay") ... food from travels in this part previously, i would give an 8/10,for variety alone here is a luxury ... staff 9/10 for smiles, conversation and putting up with me ( thankyou Unmani) ... will be returning for a 3rd time, but for for much longer to take part more in the hotels activities, yoga,meditation, dance etc. & soak up what the owner calls 'the ladakhi way of life'.
