Pangong Villa, Spangmik (Pangong Tso)

January 30, 2017 at 4:28 pm

During my September 2016 trip to Ladakh, I stayed at Pangong Villa, which is located in Spangmik Village near Pangong Tso.

Real benefit of Pangong Villa is that it is one of the last hotels, located towards the end of Spangmik Village. So early in the morning, this is the view that awaits you from your room.


In fact view from the room was so good; I had shot 3 time-lapses from right outside my room. In the freezing September winds of Ladakh, the value of being able to setup a time-lapse and run back into the comfort of room is something that is unparalleled.

Rooms are fairly cozy as well, well as cozy as they can get in freezing temperature of Ladakh. Thanks to traditional construction, rooms are warmer than the concrete guesthouses. However, heater isn’t available. Since a generator is used to provide electricity in evening.




Rooms are available on MAP plan i.e. cost of dinner and breakfast is included in the price. Buffet dinner is served in the dining room near the rooms. And you can ask Dorjey to pack your breakfast, in case you plan on leaving early in the morning.

In fact Dorjey was kind enough to get us warm water and tea around 6am.

Mobile phone network (BSNL) only comes at a certain point in the dining room, though this is the case with most of Spangmik, since proper mobile phone network is only in Lukung.

In 2016, tariff was Rs. 2,500 per night on MAP plan, and you can bargain a bit with Dorjay for discount.

Overall a good and cozy place to stay at Spangmik, if you want proper room with attached toilet, without breaking the bank.
