It isn't often that the manager of your hotel is the uncle of a queen... Phunchok Wangchuk, the uncle of the "queen", runs a cozy family hotel, the Shambha-La, set in an apple orchard 1 km outside Leh, Ladakh. - TIME Magazine, November 27, 2000.
In Ladakhi folklore, paradise is to be found in this world itself in the mythical northern region of 'Shambha-La' . We have tried to recreate this popular myth in our beautiful resort located in a grove of poplar trees just a mile from the heart of Leh town. Its peaceful and tranquil settings give new meaning to the words 'sound of silence'. The hotel is run hands-on by the owners Mr. & Mrs. Narboo who also live on the premises. His late father, Sonam Narboo was awarded the Padmashree for distinguished services to the nation, He constructed the Leh Airport in 1948, when Pakistan was trying to occupy the region at the time of partition of the country. Leh - Srinagar highway was also his contribution to the country, among many other achievements.
Ladakh, the land of many passes, snow clad mountains and deserts is among the highest of the world's inhabited plateaus. It lies at altitudes ranging from about 2,750 meters at Kargil to 7,672 meters at Saser Kangri in the Karakoram. Leh Valley itself lies at 3,500 meters (11,500 feet). The summer temperatures range from 20°C to 30°C, while in winter they may drop to -40°C in some high altitude areas.
Leh is well connected to New Delhi by Jet Airways, Kingfisher, Air India and a number of newer airlines all of whom operate daily flights round the year. Flight is of one-hour duration and as these flights tend to be heavily booked reservations should be made well in advance especially for the peak summer month of May, June, July August & September. Air India also operates to Leh from Srinagar & Jammu. Booking well in advance will also ensure availability of very attractive discounted fares.
Between May to November one can travel by motorcar from Manali to Leh which is a two-day journey or from Srinagar to Leh which also takes the same time but is a much better road.
