Hotel in Kargil

On a large lawn at the southernmost edge of town, The Highland has a semi-rural setting, its lobby with fake fireplace has a slightly Austrian feel, and modern art touches adorn rooms and corridors. Arguably Kargil's best hotel, the only slight let-down is the state of certain bathrooms – small and with signs of mold and chipped tiles.

Beware of inaccurate marketing that describes The Highland as a spa resort (the spa isn't yet built) and superimposes the hotel's image on an entirely false background of snowy peaks.
