I stayed at Balti Residency for one month during my winter volunteering experience in January. The rooms were great and the owner Khaliq is a wonderful host. The one month I spent there will always be one that I'll cherish. You meet a lot of wonderful people in this village and I've made some great friends. I can't wait to go back and experience that life once again.
Great food, Great place, Great host. Recommended for anyone who visit Turtuk.
I had a great stay at Balti residency in Aug 2017. Hotel and hotelier were amazing. I felt at home and Abdul was there for anything. Thanks to him I could learn more about Turtuk and Balti culture. Totally recommended.

If you really want to experience the Turtuk Village and the village life, Balti Guest House is the perfect place to stay. The host is extremely helpful and very hospitable. The place serves great food and the host ensure you are kept warm during cold winter nights. If you are lucky you could spot a snow leopard too in and around the village. The host is a school teacher too, which means if you are kind enough to him he would take you to the village school too.
