Juley,
It was our dream to visit the beautiful land of Ladakh since long. But it came true only last week when we visited Ladakh. When the tour was finalized at last we were concerned about the staying arrangements, about the food and about other arrangements. However I must admit that all the concerns were taken care off by superb arrangements from Kamlesh Lalan at Ravine Trek. Hotel Arrangements at Pangong Hotel by Mr. Iffa Alam were fantastic. We are speechless. Staff was so courteous. Kitchen staff was also very enthusiastic particularly Mr. Roshan. We were little bit concerned about our Jain Food. But this area was also covered very smoothly. Mr. Sharma at reception counter also co-operated very well. Our thanks to them.
Other arrangements made by Mr. Thundup Dorji were also simply superb. Accommodation provided at Ule Ethnic Resort are unforgettable. Even at Tso Pangong apart from beauty of the lake we were simply amused by the arrangements at such a remote place. At Chamba Camp also we enjoyed a lot. And above all we enjoyed the company of your driver Mr. Dorji through out our tour. Normally the person who is driving at such a hilly area is a good driver. He was also no exception to this. But also he is a good human being. He co-operated us very well. Even he showed so many things which otherwise we could not see. He also enlightened us about the wild life of Ladakh particularly Murmot. We had a pleasant meeting with Mr. Thundup which was also memorable. I thank you Mr. Thundup for your complementary Book on Ladakh. I thank you again all of you for making our trip so pleasant. In person Mr. Kamlesh Lalan, Mr. Iffa Alam and Mr. Thundup Dorji.

My family were there for four night in June 2012. After reading through Tripadvisor before going to Ladakh we were given choice of 2-3 hotels by our Tour Organiser. We opted for this place after reasonable consideration. As I was with my young son of 8 year old who happen to be Austistic and as we were from Thailand the weather being very hot , adjusting to cold weather was a bit challenging. However at request they gave us a bigger room downstair for convenient to go to dinning room. It was considerate of them as hotel was fully pack for June. Food were great with lot of variety, although there were more vegetarian but they offered to get some non veg too. It was clean and staff friendly and smiling. A Good morning wish were there from cleaner to the manager. We give our Thumb up and please try to keep it that way. We also thanks the tripadvisor.in for providing the platform and various view and review of the many commentor who spend time in giving your review for other traveller .

We stayed there for 4 night during our 8 days trip to Ladakh in May 2012. Location: Just 5 min walk and you are on the Fort Road which has most of the restaurants in Leh. Another 10 mins of walk will get you to main market. Food: Variety are limited but quality is nice. Moreover the staff is always ready to prepare dish of your choice. Rooms: Comfortable and clean. Do not expect luxury but rooms have almost all required amenities. There is a problem of electricity though but later we came to know that it is every where in Leh. But still you get electricity most of the time in 24 hrs. Water is available in morning for 4-5 hrs and in evening for a few hours. Staff: This is the best part of the hotel. All hotel staff including the restaurant and housekeeping staff are very accommodating and always smiling. They fulfilled our every request like room changing, preparing specific dish for dinner, getting hot water early etc. Restaurant staff Roshanrai and Shastri gave us very important advice on getting acclimatize faster and also important tips on visiting Khardung-la so that we do not have to face any medical conditions. The two housekeeping ladies are always smiling and ready to help you. If luxury is not a requirement than this hotel fulfils all the need of a comfortable and pleasant stay.

For such a remote part of the world, this was a remarkably pleasant hotel. For various complicated reasons, we ended up staying here on 3 occasions in 3 different rooms during our month in Ladakh. We were made to feel most welcome each time. Every room we had was spacious,bright, clean, and comfortable, with hot showers in the attached modern bathrooms. The manager is thoroughly professional and the staff are all friendly and really do their best, but are not necessarily familiar with the requirements of European visitors. However they responded positively to all our requests and were so kind and so anxious to please that one could forgive any little misunderstandings. The restaurant was fine with a good cooked breakfast and other meals whenever required. It was nice that the waiters remembered exactly what we liked for breakfast each day. We had no stomach problems and the food hygiene seemed good. There was internet access at a small price, but the electricity is unreliable throughout Leh and unsaved work is lost if the power goes down. My only concern was that there was a large pack of dogs barking outside our bedroom window on several nights, making sleep difficult. But this is not something the hotel can do anything about unless the town council takes steps to tackle the problem. The location is good in a (relatively) quiet lane just a few steps from the town centre.

Leh is a place you really can't forget - ever in life! It is a once in a lifetime experience. But an experience that doesn't come easy - altitude sickness, lack of appetite and general fatigue are high. Which means the hotel you choose becomes very important to the overall experience. We were happy to choose Hotel Pangong. The place is very conveniently located, at walking distance from the central market area, which is great since walking is not very easy in the Leh weather. The staff at the hotel was very warm and friendly, they really made you feel comfortable. I must make a mention that my partner got fever while we were at the hotel and the staff went out of their way to help out. The rooms were decent, but no major luxuries out there - suffice it to say that the facilities were functional and had everything that you would need. The food was good, including veg and non-veg varieties. It would have been good to sample some local cuisine too, but most food served to us at the hotel was standard. We stepped out on a couple of evenings to find local cuisine in the market.

Voilà une destination qui a son mérite. Les chambres sont propres avec un coût un peu plus élevé qu'on pourrait s'attendre surtout si on compare à Kathmandhu. Le personnel très sympathique de l'hôtel fait le charme de l'endroit. Très attentionné et dévoué. Par contre, il existe des endroits plus intéressants pour se nourrir. Les occidentaux préfèreront sans doute prendre le petit déjeuner au réputé Pengouin. Le petit déjeuner buffet de Pangong est très répétitif si votre séjour est de plusieurs jours. Le wifi de l'hôtel est peu fiable - ceci étant l'électricité pour l'ensemble de la ville l'étant tout autant - et la fiabilité d'Internet en Inde étant variable. Très bien localisé. Le Pandong ne se prend pas pour un hôtel de luxe et il ne l'est pas. Toutefois, dans le registre des hôtels à 50$US/nuit, il fait bonne figure.
