Tourist Facilitation Centre

Guesthouse in Kargil

Up a theatrical spiral staircase in a still-fresh 2012 building, great-value double rooms are hotel-standard, with fan, geyser and carved wooden bedsteads – many with Suru views. 'VIP' rooms come with ludicrously oversized lounges containing up to a dozen sofas apiece.

The hotel is in Bemathang's riverside park, 1.5km south of the centre towards Baroo. Book through the Tourist Reception Centre.
