Wake Up To Views Of The Crystal Clear Pangong Lake

The Pangong Inn in Ladakh is one of those properties where a bird’s-eye view is the number-one selling point. Who can blame travellers for wanting to ditch pool-view or garden-view rooms in favour of a picture of the crystal clear, azure coloured Pangong Lake? If you are looking for indelible memories, there can be nothing like this dramatic setting.

Insulated Rooms To Keep You Warm

Here, you can stay in one of the eight insulated rooms where the ceilings feature a layer of dried poplar sticks and tarpaulin. When the temperature drops to negative outside, the room and the thick 650 gsm poly-fill comforters will keep you warm. The heat of the kitchen fires warms up the dining room. Ladakh Has A Magnetic Hill Where Cars Are Pulled Upwards On A Slope.

Live In Tents & Feel Close To Mother Nature

What makes this luxury inn even more striking is the fact that it is one of the first hotels in the area. Only tents and camps have been used to maintain the sanctity of mother nature. If you wish to detox and cut yourself from city life, this is the place to feel at one with nature. You Can Now Buy A Piece Of Land In Ladakh With This New Law.
