Choice is phenomenal and almost nowhere is really dire, so don't panic if our suggestions are full. Room standards can vary significantly within each property so, when possible, look before you book. For ultra-budget places, try the back alleys of Upper Changspa. For garden homestay-guesthouses around the ₹800 mark look in Upper Karzoo. For slightly plusher family guesthouses Upper Tukcha is a good bet. Staying out at Sankar or Yurthung can be idyllically peaceful but there'll be a fairly long, dark walk home from town (₹150 by taxi by day).
