Stok is a small village situated at the base of the mighty Stok Kangri peak around 17 km from the Leh town in Ladakh. The village has a 14th century monastery alongside a 71 ft high statue of Gautam Buddha overlooking the Stok valley. Stok also serves as the gateway to several trekking trails. The former royal family of Ladakh inhabits the Stok palace here. The palace also acts as a museum showcasing various royal belongings as well as the history of the royal family. This homestay is located at a walking distance from the palace. The village has really low light-pollution levels and therefore is a perfect place for night sky watching and stars gazing all year round.
