Ladakh Sarai


Come live as nomads do!

Perched above the raging Indus River and resting quietly below the massive Ladakh Range exists a peaceful green oasis – the serene grounds of the Ladakh Sarai. The Sarai is Ladakh’s premier eco resort, a tribe of 14 yurt-style bungalows nestled in a beautiful grove of willow, poplar, apricot and apple trees. The Sarai is situated comfortably apart from bustling Leh town, just a 10 minute (7 km.) scenic drive away through winding streets, quaint bazaars, and desert stretches. The Ladakh Sarai was created in 1978 by the British adventure travel pioneers, Tiger Mountain. We have maintained the rustic and unique feel of private, cozy yurts, while adding the comforts of attached baths. Each spacious yurt has 2 twin beds and a small sitting area.

All of our yurts are hand sewn and modeled after the traditional Central Asian and Mongolian “Akois.” They are draped with local, soft colored fabrics from top to bottom: pillowed tapestry ceilings, canvas walls, and traditional rugs, all inviting you in after a long day on the dry Ladakhi plateau. The moon will shine in your window as you read by candlelight – the perfect romantic atmosphere. Wash the dust away in solar heated showers, and feel good about your minimum impact on the fragile Ladakhi ecosystem. Sit outside your private yurt and soak in the sun as the breeze gently wafts through the willow branches, and let the grass tickle your feet. Yurt style living is perfect for families, groups, company retreats, or the lone nomad who seeks something different and familiar in their accommodation.
