Serene Abode Homestay Zanskar – Ladakh

Clifftop gompas, turquoise alpine lakes, strenuous Himalayan treks, sub-zero temperatures, elusive snow leopards, scenic passes, snow-capped Himalayas and stone houses are an everyday backdrop of this semi-arid, isolated yet exquisite region of the trans-Himalayas known as Zanskar. This physically exhausting but amply compensation stunning beauty is a dream for adventure enthusiasts. Its relative inaccessibility makes Zanskar truly a hidden gem of the Himalayas.

This traditionally built homestay is set in a surreal location on the banks of the Zanskar River 16km north of Padum at the foot of the Zanskar mountain range. Soak in the silence of this remote land while enjoying the gorgeous view of the snow-clad Zanskar range and the pristine valley.  Built in traditional Ladakhi architecture, this homestay is a perfect amalgamation of modern luxury and a traditional vibe.

This cottage is a single-storeyed building with four double bedrooms and a common living space. All the rooms have an attached washroom with a hot shower facility sourced from solar panels. The homestay also has Swiss cottage tents on the Zanskar riverbank.
