the space

The homestay provides a perfect combination of traditional Ladakhi architecture and modern amenities to keep up with the ever-changing times. The original house was constructed in the early 60’s, but with the family moved on to a more modern home, thereby abandoning their family home. The hosts, a couple of Ladakhi and Japanese origin, took it upon themselves to restore Holy Stoked, it took a decade to get it back into shape. With their tasteful and creative ways, they have maintained the mud structure of the house that gives one a complete eco stay experience. Additionally, they grow their own vegetables such as mushrooms, zucchini, cucumbers, pumpkins, etc., and they even have their own buckwheat farm! To this day the hosts maintain traditional Ladakhi dry compost toilets in keeping with the ethos of the traditional vernacular.

comforts

On the ground floor is a traditional Ladakhi dining area and the kitchen. The hosts and their three lovely children also live here. A lovely wooden staircase leads to the top floor where one can find three bedrooms to host guests along the open terrace of the house. Additionally, there is a common room where one can relax, work out of, or stargaze using the telescope. Guest have access to a common dry pit toilet on this floor and a large bathroom downstairs. There are no attached bathrooms with any of the bedrooms. The terrace has a sit-out area that overlooks fields of barley, mustard, and the Ladakh range. The property is functional all year.

food

The hosts offer a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals prepared carefully using organic vegetables and dairy products right from their very own farm and greenhouse. They offer local Ladakhi dishes such as Skyu, Khambir bread, momos along with the famous butter tea that is a staple at every Ladakhi household. Also on the menu are dishes cooked with the superfood – Tsampa (roasted barley flour). Additionally, owing to the Japanese origins, one can expect some sumptuous Japanese fare such as ramen, miso-soup, and sushi every once in a while.
