I got busy with work.. so coming back to write this review as the fond memory of this spectacular homestay still keeps me in awe!... :) I have traveled extensively both in India and the west.. but can guarantee to you that the sheer unspoiled beauty of the surroundings of this place will take your breath away.. The homestay is situated in a little village 'Merak' , some 20kms ahead of the 'touristy rut' and camps in Spangmik. The road between Spangmik and Merak is a unpaved one, so a bit bumpy , but treads along the edge of the lake so is a magnificent sight.. clear emerald blue water.. It will take roughly 30 mins to get to village Merak, you will cross the village of Mann on the way. Village Merak is right out of a storybook with around 10 tiny houses, 1 school and a monastery. If you are looking for a truly local , authentic experience and are a nature buff.. this homestay is sure to delight ! First the location ... You simply cannot ask for a more picturesque place to stay.. beautiful snow clad mountains behind the house while the majestic Lake is a only roughly 300 metres in front - a quick 3-4 min walk. The place is like a postcard.. unbelievably peaceful, with heavenly views. The owner Mr. Paljor is one of the most hospitable and kind people I have met. The facilities - There is house where Paljor's family stays, and a separate block in the back atop a small hillock, for the guests. The guest block is provided complete privacy from the owner's family. The guest block consists of a cozy living area - with a TV, lots of seating and a dining table, 2 small guest rooms with double beds and 1 bigger dormitory for upto 10-12 people (good for larger groups). Toilets are nice, clean and modern - no pit loos as some people may scare you. Paljor also offered to heat us warm water if we need, for bathing. The large window in the living area overlooks the serene lake. A note of caution - Pangong is at around 14000 ft hence you may experience lack of oxygen, especially at night. in case you are travelling with older people or anyone with breathing issues, I would recommend you carry some oxygen cans- available in Leh. The place is hours away from any medical assistance. Now some good stuff - The food - we asked for maggi, omelettes, tea and were obliged with a smile, The dinner was really amazing - simple, tasty home cooked meals - dal, rice, roti, sabzi etc.. Overall food quality is good and hygienic. Finally the people - I honestly am short of words to describe the innocence, warmth and soulfulness of this cute family. As soon as we reach we had 4-5 small cute village kids flocking around and peeping into our room with curiosity .. They made our stay so much fun, took us to the lake, played with us, sang with us.. :p kinda crazy but for a while we bacame kids with them. There was a cute grandma and grandpa.. who kept asking us if we need something.. Paljor and his wife greeted us with smiles and looked after us with such care that we actually ended up feeling a part of their home.It was really tough leaving back to Leh next morning.. we didn't want to go.. So if you are looking for sheer bliss, unwinding to simplicity and looking to rejuvenate and find your lost self again.. Come Here!, you will not be disappointed...

We were planning to Pangong Tso to Tso Moriri trip. I wanted to stay at Merak. I got this place's number from google. I called up his owner at booked the stay. He was very responsive on phone. Here is our experience at Peacefull Homestay. "Peaceful Home Stay was basic but clean and comfortable. They had two double-bed rooms with attached bathroom and one 5-bed room. The owner was friendly and co-operative. He allowed us to use any of the rooms. Each of us occupied separate rooms. We got freshened up. Meanwhile, our Maggi was ready. It was very cold and windy outside of the rooms. However, we didn't want to get away from Pangong Lake. We asked the owner to arrange a table outside of rooms. Lake was at a walking distance from our home(stay). We went to meet the lake. We came back to our home(stay). I visited the owner's family. As per owner, whenever they have a guest at their homestay, it is always a celebration for them. I asked do they prepare different food for guest. He said they eat same food made for the guests. I invited owner and his family to have dinner with us. At night, Owner, his two kid and his caretaker joined us for dinner. We spent more than two hours talking with them. I discussed the road status of Merak to Korzok with the owner. He gave me some useful tips for next day's drive. We had some amazing time with totally strange people. Merak was very cold but our rooms were warm. Each of us enjoyed separate rooms and had sound sleep. We woke up at 6.30. Homestay owner packed breakfast for us. The entire family came to say goodbye to us. I went to homestay owner and promised him that I"ll come again. He asked me to come during winter to see white Pangong." Overall we enjoyed this place and amazing hospitality of the owner. The beds are cosy and comfortable. Rooms are unbelievably warm. As far as I know, they don't have any heater in their rooms. Merak village has two or three homestay options. However, peaceful homestay is the best. People going to Tso Moriri should stay at Merak instead of staying at Spangmik.

This was my second time staying at this place and it was just awesomeness. This simple cost place is located on a very less travelled road to a village called Merak on the banks of the pangong TSO(lake). This place is located at 15700ft above sea level is truly a quaint location just few kilometres away from the Indo-China border. It is peaceful beyond your imagination. We were hosted by Kunzang Paljor and his family. They re-define the meaning of hospitality at this place. They make you believe that one can feel at home away from home. They are one of the most trustworthy people I have ever met. Last year I forgot a silver medallion at this place and though I had lost it. It was something I used to consider lucky for myself. I returned back with a heavy heart but to my surprise I received and call from Paljor confirming my medallion with him and he then sent it to me by courier. I thanked him for his honesty and this year I fell sick at the same place but I was taken care by his family and was also taken to the nearest medical center to get medical assistance. Paljor and his family will always remain at a place of highest gratitude in my heart. These are true events and I am not sharing this for any marketing gimmick or earning any commission. The food here is local and made by his wife at home and it's very tasty. Mostly veg food is available but egg is also available in request. We spent a superb evening here and I wish to meet Paljor and his family again next year. In a way, I now-a-days visit Ladakh not for the location anymore but to meet such wonderful people whom I have come to call friends now. So, I recommend this place to those who want to feel, what it is to be a ladhaki.......

As the name suggests, this is not a hotel but a home stay. Considering the location, living condition and hardship of life in this altitude (14000 feet), this accommodation is a blessing. The beauty of nature will let every short-comings go at this property. With the love and Hospitality of the old grannies, you won't complain. This property is 38mt approx away from the lake. Wonderful lake view from front room. This place is 20km away from the entry lake point. Drive to this village will give you a mesmerizing view of the Pangong Tso. A midnight sit-out is a must at this place to see the moving stars. Back of this property you find snow capped peaks at stone through distance. Over and all, this property is not for a luxury stay but to enjoy nature at the fullest. Travel Tips: Do not go to this place without acclimatization in Leh for atleast 2days. Place does not have high end medical facility but army medi help is 20 km away and the village have a medical nurse and make-shift. Acute mountain sickness (AMS) and sleepless nights are very common. Consult doctor at Leh general hospital for any kind of trouble. Do not take sleeping pills.

Stayed here with Family. The Facilities are very Basic but adequate in respect of the tuft location. Great Hospitality, Good Food, basic Medical support. Two Double Bedded Rooms with attached Bath and Hot water supply in bucket. OUT OF THE WORLD AMBIENCE and I must say that it is a MUST STAY place.
