Ladakh Sarai

Leh, India

Located several miles outside of Leh and perched above the raging Indus River, the Ladakh Sarai has cozy, yurt-style bungalows nestled among willow, poplar, and apricot orchards and surrounded by farmland below the grand peaks of the Ladakh Himalaya. At this eco-resort,  hot water is solar-heated, yurts are made of locally sourced bamboo and canvas, and use of electricity is minimized, so dinner will be candle-lit. Plentiful gardens adorn winding pathways through the resort.
