I visited Kidar guest house in the month of October.It was just beginning to get cold in Leh at that time.
I booked the trip through Rinchen Namgial of Yama Adventures,
It is through Yama adventures that we happen to be in "Kidar"
The weather had roughened up by the time we came in October.
The reception was good and prompt.
The rooms were spacious and clean.
The guest house actually is a family business and we were looked after very well.
It had just snowed and the garden in front of our rooms looked pretty.
Mrs Namgil supervised our travel arrangements superbly.
The food served was good,clean and not costly at all.
The only drawback that we all faced was the absence of any heating arrangement in the rooms and absence of hot running water. That left us all very uncomfortable .
The basin tap water was icy and the toilet seat felt like a slab of ice.
Some of us took ill because of travel fatigue,high altitude and the extreme cold.We had to abandon the travel in the midst as the weather conditions became very inclement.
Mr.Rinchen Namgil and Mrs.Namgill made every effort to help us out.
The owners Mr.Angchuk and Mrs.Chorol went out of their way to comfort us.
I plan to return back again next year in April with dozens of my other friends.
Other Indian travellers do not forget to see the "Trishul Army Museum".This museum dosent appear in the POI's. This museum is open only to Indian Nationals.
Do visit the market,as we purchased some very good coats and boots .
Try and taste the Yak milk,it tastes good.
Overall ,excepting for the major drawback of absent heating system and running hot water this is a gem of a place.
I would come back again.
