During my recent Winter Trip to Ladakh, I stayed at the Hanle Observatory Guest House, which is located just ahead of Hanle Village and in the foothills of the Hanle Astrophysics Observatory.
At the Hanle Guest House, during winter there were two functioning rooms with attached western style toilets and gas powered heaters, while the rooms we got upstairs, only had electric heaters (electricity is only available between 8AM to 10:30PM) and only an Indian style common toilet was working. Guess things would be a lot better during summers.
We paid Rs. 400 per person for accommodation, which included evening tea, soup, dinner, morning tea and breakfast. Which isn’t a bad deal, considering the fact that Hanle only has couple of home stays to offer, apart from this guest house.
Update: Hanle Observatory Guest House can no longer be booked by civilians.
Since Hanle observatory guest house is not possible to book anymore, stay at home stay available there.
There are two home stays that I got to know of. The first one is owned by the family which owns the only STD booth in town. The second one is owned by Sonam Dorje. The former has a functional bathroom which is clean but the room is not that clean. The latter is cleaner but an operational bathroom will only happen by September.
Both charge by the bed at 200 per bed for the night. I will share some pictures and phone number of the former once i'm back in Delhi. they serve home cooked food as well.
