Homestay trekking

Homestay trekking

General information

Instead of booking a full package of camping trekking, you can use homestays during trekking from village to village. There are several trekking routes in Ladakh where it is easy to find places to stay in local family houses.

Homestay host family provides a place to sleep in a traditional house, authentic home-cooked dishes (three meals a day: dinner, breakfast and packed lunch), boiled/filtered spring water to drink, traditional composting toilet, refreshing shower with solar-heated water.

Homestays can be found by looking for signs outside village homes and asking whether the family has a room for the night. A fixed homestay price is set every season by a local homestay association. During the 2016 trekking season, the standard homestay rate was 1000 rupees per person. But keep in mind that the homestay price goes up every year.

You will have to carry your luggage (usually, a change of clothes and a bottle of water) yourself during the trek, so make sure your backpack is not overweight.

Alps Adventure can provide a local guide and transportation to and from the start/finish points of the trek.
