Panchali will be even cheaper if you bargain. Get a room for 1000rs/night

Following are the Stay options at Kalpa, Reckong Peo, Sangla and Chitkul. Also see the attached file, if that helps

I have heard some good views about Panchali Resort at Chitkul though never stayed there.

Hai TSK,

Can one risk using the laptop at Kalpa / Sangla & Chitkul? I think only Chitkul is above 10K feets. I saw you being active on this subject in some forums.

Or would it be better to come down below 9500 feets to dump camera conents? I wouldn't want to crash HDD on my Vostro using it on high altitude.

Upto 10,000 feet is should be okay. since PCs are so common in Leh I think upto 11,000 feet should be okay. Anywhere above that may be an issue.
But make sure you always shut down your laptop and do not put it to standby mode while driving.
The hard disk should be powered down when subjected to shocks in the vehicle

Sorry for the late reply, was out of touch of tbhp for sometime. Posting out here for general view.

Definitely it is the best place to stay and we travelled just a few days before it became on-season for the October Puja holidays. When we landed up in Chitkul [we did not do any advance reservation during the tour] immediately on seeing the position of the hotel or resort, we made up our mind to stay over there, nothing more or less. The view from that resort is fantastic with nothing to obstruct.

We got a good bargain as there was no one other than us at that time, it was like Rs 350 a room for 2 days, but well we neutralized the great savings by having good food and they got back at us with the food rates - so check up the food rates before you order, but again food rates will be high is such off beat places.


Attaching the two pictures of Pancholi resort, first one showing the resort with the Dicor in front. Dont recall exactly if TVs were there in each room but then who watches TV out here though one TV was there at the reception area, the night time was spent by the bonfire. the other picture is when we were checking out with teh caretaker seen by side, and the amazing views from the resort, no structure to block view unlike other hotels/resorts out there. Hot water was available through geysers.

Apologies for bring this thread back from the dead, but what an adventure! Thankfully, these modern gadgets (ECU) has a "limp home mode" - without which you would have had to spend the night in the Safari.
