Dolkhar is a very beautiful and luxurious boutique stay in Ladakh. The place is built and designed very carefully keeping the heart of Ladakh pumping, that is, its traditional values and culture. Through art, architecture, and local cuisine, it seeks to preserve and promote Ladakh‘s history and culture. At Dolkhar, structures are built with locally sourced materials by local artisans and with local construction techniques. Creating an eco-system without waste and plastic has been the goal of the entire development process. The place is the result of a collaboration with more than 40 Ladakhi craftsmen who have beautified it with local materials. The use of CSEB (Compressed Stabilised Earth Blocks) for the building, traditional columns and beams and willow and poplar wood for making the roofs show how local tradition is in the heart of Dolkhar.
