    I love everything nature and Nubra Valley looks amazing! The fact that it is a protected area and you can camp in the region, is ideal! Thank you for the recommendations! I will definitely use this list when I plan my holiday

    • Ozzy October 3, 2017 at 2:37 pm

      It is probably one of the best places to visit. If you’re a motorcycle enthusiast, then it gets even better. Plan accordingly and hope you have a great time in Nubra.

  • Vibeke Johannessen October 3, 2017 at 4:53 pm

    Ladakh and Nubra Valley look very scenic. I would love to stay there when I go to India. I personally think Lchang Nang Retreat looks like a cool place to stay. Cool, you can bring the pet there too hehe.

    • Ozzy October 3, 2017 at 5:46 pm

      Its quite rare to bring a pet along to Nubra (given the altitude) but Lchang is the only place where pets are allowed.

  • Paige W October 4, 2017 at 4:23 am

    My husband and I are heading to India in March for about a month, and I’ve been having a heck of a time planning because there’s so much to see! I haven’t even started thinking about where to stay in certain cities and now Hotel Namgyal Villa is one of the places I’m going to stay! It looks amazing!

  • Candy October 4, 2017 at 10:54 pm

    This is an awesome list. I think the last time I went camping was over 10 years ago. Some of these places look more like glamping 🙂
    Ladakh Summer Camp looks like glamping and I like that they have heated facilities and free breakfast.

    • Ozzy October 5, 2017 at 1:18 pm

      Hospitality is everything in India! People go out of their way to make sure their guests have a comfortable and warm experience. 10 years sounds like a long time ago, time to go camping again, eh?

  • Natasha October 5, 2017 at 1:41 am

    Well all of these hotels look comfortable, but I think I’d really love Sand Dunes View Resort. I love how simple and clean everything looks! If I ever find myself nearby, I now know where to stay. 🙂

    • Ozzy October 5, 2017 at 1:16 pm

      The view from the Sand Dunes Resorts is ‘out of this world’. Hope you reach there sooner than later!

  • Sandy N Vyjay October 5, 2017 at 4:20 am

    These are wonderful stay options in the beautiful and panoramic Nubra Valley. The list is useful especially as the remote areas of India including Leh/Ladakh and the North East are not that much in the limelight and sometimes finding accommodation online presents some difficulty.

    • Ozzy October 5, 2017 at 1:15 pm

      True that! It gets really cumbersome to find accommodation option in these remote areas. Glad that this would be able to help fellow travelers.

  • Rahul Khurana October 6, 2017 at 12:05 pm

    A beautiful and beautiful staying options. I like staying in camps or retreats. Hence my favourite one would be the Lchang Nang Retreat. 🙂

  • Veronica P. October 6, 2017 at 1:48 pm

    I really loved Sand Dunes View Resort, Mystique Meadows Camp, and Nubra Summer Camp. I checked their pages on booking sites.
    Those are the place where I would really love to stay for a couple of days.
