I got busy with work.. so coming back to write this review as the fond memory of this spectacular homestay still keeps me in awe!... :) I have traveled extensively... read more both in India and the west.. but can guarantee to you that the sheer unspoiled beauty of the surroundings of this place will take your breath away.. The homestay is situated in a little village 'Merak' , some 20kms ahead of the 'touristy rut' and camps in Spangmik. The road between Spangmik and Merak is a unpaved one, so a bit bumpy , but treads along the edge of the lake so is a magnificent sight.. clear emerald blue water.. It will take roughly 30 mins to get to village Merak, you will cross the village of Mann on the way. Village Merak is right out of a storybook with around 10 tiny houses, 1 school and a monastery. If you are looking for a truly local , authentic experience and are a nature buff.. this homestay is sure to delight ! First the location ... You simply cannot ask for a more picturesque place to stay.. beautiful snow clad mountains behind the house while the majestic Lake is a only roughly 300 metres in front - a quick 3-4 min walk. The place is like a postcard.. unbelievably peaceful, with heavenly views. The owner Mr. Paljor is one of the most hospitable and kind people I have met. The facilities - There is house where Paljor's family stays, and a separate block in the back atop a small hillock, for the guests. The guest block is provided complete privacy from the owner's family. The guest block consists of a cozy living area - with a TV, lots of seating and a dining table, 2 small guest rooms with double beds and 1 bigger dormitory for upto 10-12 people (good for larger groups). Toilets are nice, clean and modern - no pit loos as some people may scare you. Paljor also offered to heat us warm water if we need, for bathing. The large window in the living area overlooks the serene lake. A note of caution - Pangong is at around 14000 ft hence you may experience lack of oxygen, especially at night. in case you are travelling with older people or anyone with breathing issues, I would recommend you carry some oxygen cans- available in Leh. The place is hours away from any medical assistance. Now some good stuff - The food - we asked for maggi, omelettes, tea and were obliged with a smile, The dinner was really amazing - simple, tasty home cooked meals - dal, rice, roti, sabzi etc.. Overall food quality is good and hygienic. Finally the people - I honestly am short of words to describe the innocence, warmth and soulfulness of this cute family. As soon as we reach we had 4-5 small cute village kids flocking around and peeping into our room with curiosity .. They made our stay so much fun, took us to the lake, played with us, sang with us.. :p kinda crazy but for a while we bacame kids with them. There was a cute grandma and grandpa.. who kept asking us if we need something.. Paljor and his wife greeted us with smiles and looked after us with such care that we actually ended up feeling a part of their home.It was really tough leaving back to Leh next morning.. we didn't want to go.. So if you are looking for sheer bliss, unwinding to simplicity and looking to rejuvenate and find your lost self again.. Come Here!, you will not be disappointed...
