Yourdum Guest House - Hunder, Nubra Valley, Ladakh | Review

Postby dheerajsharma14 » Thu Jan 30, 2014 12:02 am

On our DoW Ladakh Mega Meet 2013, I stayed at Yourdum Guest House at Hunder in Nubra Valley. This small guest house in Hunder was exceptionally good considering the remote place and other pricey camping options available around apart from the fact that you can find your way to it through the narrow roads of Hunder :) ... I loved the on the house service, soft spoken language from the care taker and cook. The whole family was very welcoming too and they took good care of each of us. Hunder Sand Dunes were just 10 minutes of drive/ride from the guest house.

Cost
It was quite within the budget with Rs 600 - 900 depending upon room you choose and number of people staying in on room.

Facilities
There were 3 rooms with attached bath and 2-3 rooms without bath. There was hot running water through boiler and the rooms were adequately spaced. Fine enough for 3 people easily. Couple of rooms were 4 bedded too. There is no TV in the room and TV is located outside room in dining area where food is served.

Food
Well, food was the second best we had on the whole trip. It was quite homely, fresh and well prepared/cooked. The cook was from Kargil.

Parking
There was ample of space to park at least 3-4 cars and given the number of rooms they had it was enough. Otherwise, you need to park outside.

Experience
The whole experience was very nice, they nicely packed the breakfast for us for the next morning too in foil paper. Sandwiches and Eggs were boiled only for us in the wee hours of morning, still thanking them for it :D ... There was a small garden in front having apples, cabbages and loads of colorful flowers around you. It was quite a refreshing feeling overall after a hectic day for us.

Conclusion
Very nice place to stay in Nubra Valley if you are looking out for some decent, moderate budget accommodation. Though please keep in mind that the bedding was not too soft to provide you luxury comfort. The bedding was basic with moderate softness mattresses and none of us had any issues while staying or sleeping over there. It is a basic guest house with all basic and necessary facilities required and should be available in low cost guest house :)

For all of us it was great value for money stay in Hunder, Nubra Valley - Ladakh !!

Can you please help me in locating homestays / budget hotels at Kargil. We are a group of 7 (seven) and would be staying there on 25th May night. The options available on the web are quite costly.
