What Diskit is to the Shyok Valley, Sumur is to the Nubra. Sumur is a very picturesque and peaceful village in the Nubra Valley of Ladakh. Located at an altitude of 10720 ft, 117 km from north of Leh, it is known for its untouched sand dunes and Samstem Ling Gompa which stands above the village at the foot of barren mountains and was founded by Lama Tsultrim Nima in 1840s. Its lovely green and yellow fields along with the Nubra River, the snow clad mountains in the backdrop makes it a picture perfect place.
Sumur Homestay was built by Tsering Stobdan in 1998 which eventually became first and probably the only homestay of Sumur. Located near Saser Camp, it is curated in a farmland with fruit trees all around. It has 7 guest rooms, all come with attached bathroom and English toilet. It has a traditional Ladakhi kitchen and a dinning hall which has become a meeting place for travelers who come from across the world. It also has a garden to bask in the sun.
Location: Near Saser camp.
Number of Rooms -7; Total Capacity: 20
Tsering Stobdan is a farmer who looks after the home with his wife Dolma. He is well known for he is the local Archery Champion and is happy to share tips and his knowledge about Archery.
Dolma is incharge of the kitchen. She cooks traditional Ladakhi food like Thupka, Skew, Khambi (Ladakhi bread) along with regular North Indian food. There is a fruit orchard, so fresh Apple and Apricot is freely available. We have our own cows so you get fresh milk and home made dairy products.

An excellent homestay. Very peaceful. They have an amazing garden full of apples and apricots. A vegetable garden adds to the village charm.The hosts are really accomodating and well behaved. Authentic home made ladakhi food can be served. Butter tea was wonderful as well as the thukpa for dinner. Rooms are very comfortable and cosy. Looking fwd to visiting again.08/10/2021
