We reached hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra around five 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 an 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 because of winter. I show them my booking and payment slips and furthermore mentioned that I even have been confirmed with the owner 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 girl told as a special case they’re going to provide us with one super deluxe room (upgraded one) however washroom has no water. Due to winter all water from pipes has been washed out as water can change to ice and pipes can rupture. They would prepare two buckets of water for an emergency. Moreover, they will prepare dinner that consists of rice, egg curry, veg curry and salad (Rs.150 each).
Without sparing any word I accepted their offerings. After coming into my area I found building Namgyal Villa Nubra is a sensible guesthouse. Situated in the lap of Karakoram mountains- in the sumoor village -which is a gateway to the famous Siachen glacier and the ancient silk route to central Asia. It is 118km from Leh city and 32km from diskit the block headquarters.
The famous entsa monastery and the healthful hot springs are set 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 the double hump camel ride. Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra has ten double bedrooms with attached bathrooms. Hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra even has a bed area with a typical bathroom besides a dormitory wherever 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 room and a well-furnished dining hall I even have seen and hotel Namgyal Villa Nubra provides a garden and free wireless fidelity. 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.
