    The hotel offers 82 spacious yet cosy rooms, all having unearthly views of picturesque landscapes, where you’d want to spend entire days just soaking in the beauty of the mountains, reading a book with a cup of hot chocolate or just Instagram-ing away to a lit social media feed.

    The fitness freaks will be pleased to know that there’s a fully equipped gym with cardio machines, sauna and steam rooms and also, massage chairs. At The Grand Dragon, you have the rare opportunity to meditate with the backdrop of the Himalayas and get rid of all the stress the city life has been weighing you down by.

    Embark On Mountain Adventures

    When in Ladakh, you can take a jeep safari across the rugged deserts tracks, experience the authentic Tibetan culture during festivals, shop for homemade yak cheese, Pashmina shawls, Tibetan prayer wheels at the local markets {or at the Hotel souvenir shop} and soak in the beauty of the place which is any photographer’s paradise.

    Ladakh also offers opportunities for adventure sports like rafting, trekking, rock climbing, motorbike rallies, camping by the lakes, etc., all of which are experiences to be ticked off of any traveller’s bucket list.

    And to keep you happy & well-fed throughout your mountain adventures, the hotel offers a range of cuisines, from local thukpa soup and momo, to the regular Indian, Chinese and European dishes.

    You can also enjoy a comforting cup of coffee at the Zasgyath coffee shop’s open terrace in the hotel where one can view the beautiful Stok mountain range. A more intimate dining area – Tusrabs will take visitors back to ancient times through the black and white photographs lining the walls depicting the Ladakh of yore. 

    So, We're Saying...

    Almost every traveller has Leh, Ladakh on their travel bucket list and we’re kind of saving up {both our leaves and our money} too to experience the best of the mountains India has to offer. Bonfires under the clear night sky, lessons in Buddhism at high altitudes and meals amidst the mountains is not something that you can experience everyday {especially in a city like Delhi}. Leave all the hustling behind, regain your zen-mode and book a room at The Grand Dragon Ladakh for the trip of a lifetime.

    We all need some TLC once in a while and The Grand Dragon won’t disappoint.
