We reached Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra around 5 o’clock evening. When our cab entered Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra premises I got down from the cab. It was too cold outside (probably 3-4 degree). I saw the hotel was locked and there was nobody in the hotel. I went to the adjacent house and after calling repeatedly one senior and one junior lady (mother and daughter) came out of the house. They told the hotel has been closed for the next 6 months due to winter. I show them my booking and payment slips and moreover mentioned that I have been confirmed with the proprietor over the phone. I also told the name of the proprietor.
After this mother and daughter discussed for a while (I can’t able to understand their language but they used words like fung, ling, lung, chikhang etc). Then the daughter told as a special case they will give us one super deluxe room (upgraded one) but washroom has no tap water. Due to winter all water from pipes has been washed out as water will change to ice and pipes will rupture. They would arrange 2 buckets of water for an emergency. Moreover, they will arrange dinner which consists of rice, egg curry, veg curry and salad (Rs.150 each).
Without sparing any word I accepted their offerings. After entering my room I found Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra is a good guesthouse. Situated in the lap of karakoram mountains- in sumoor village -which is a gateway to the famous siachen glacier and the ancient silk route to central Asia. It is 118km from Leh Town and 32km from diskit the block headquarters.
The famous entsa monastery and the medicinal hot springs are situated at 23ķm from Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra. Here is situated the picturesque sumoor dunes adjacent to the confluence of the Nubra and the Shayok rivers where tourists can enjoy double hump camel ride. Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra has ten double bedrooms with attached bathrooms. Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra also has a double bedroom with a common bathroom besides a dormitory where six guests can be accommodated.
They claim all vegetables in the kitchen are supplied from the guesthouse garden grown organically (but I doubt). I saw Apple and apricot trees surrounds the greenhouse. A well-equipped kitchen and a well-furnished dining hall I have seen and Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra provides a garden and free WiFi. Remember, you will not get wi-fi signal in room.
A simple, clean and comfortable room. A picturesque surrounding and a vegetable garden worth admiring. The hosts are friendly and love a chat. Just sitting outdoor in the garden brings a sense of peace and tranquility.
