I've been staying at hotel Shambhala every year for the last 4 years. Absolutely love the chilled out atmosphere, comfortable rooms with very neat and clean bathrooms, the garden with lazy chairs, hammocks and the tall trees. Thanks for your lovely hospitality Mrs. & Mr. Narboo and your team. Looking forward to being back at Shambhala next year!

A cozy property with a helpful staff and good food. Good rooms and services. Rooms open up in a garden with lot of seating, hammocks. It suits my definition of chilled out property. It has been done up in wood in traditional Ladhaki style giving it a charm of its own.

I stayed at Shambhala on my return trip from Nubra in the month of September last year. The moment I arrived I just fell in love with its location. There were trees and grasslands and even an old fort (i found out later), that were lined up along the road. As I entered the gates, tall poplar trees framed the... More

We planned our trip to Leh during August'15. We stayed here for 4 days (not the same 4 days for which we had booked the hotel). When we reached the hotel, we were informed that there has been a landslide and routes are closed. This led to change in plans for us, but hotel owners, who stay in the hotel... More

The family running this, lives in a private part of the same property. So if you are not one of those who like big, luxurious, impersonal hotels, this one is for you. The family itself and staff are friendly, caring and attentive. Nice large rooms with an additional small attached room for any accompanying children or additional adults. A short... More
