I had traveled to Leh in May 2019 before any of us saw a pandemic coming. Stayed at The Kaal for a week. The Kaal was recommended to me by a friend who had been there before. The staffs are warm and helpful. Since I traveled solo I always asked the staffs for suggestions of places I could visit close by for a quick stroll. ROOMS are COZY and has the BEST VIEW with mountains peeping over the forever rustling poplar trees. 💚 When you are there take don't miss to take a few moments to enjoy this. I am planning my trip for 2021 back there, see some of you there this year?

we visited leh in the month of september with my group to leh for a bike tour of leh , ladakh . we chose to stay at the kaal after getting positive reviews from online , and honestly it was a good choice . over all we stayed for 10 night days in leh , with 7 nights at leh , 1 night in nubra , pangong and Tsumuriri lake ( which was amazing BTW) we contacted the hotel directly for our package and they arranged the wholesome stay with camps and royal enfield bikes . ( choose the Himalayan for leh ) . Travelling to Nubra / pangong / Tsomoriri can be very challenging at the passes due to the rough terrain and bad roads , but thats the whole point of doing a motor bike tour to leh . you need to be patient on the curves and on the roads to leh as the scenic beauty can blow you away with the magnificent view . so one needs to be focussed on the road at all times . would like to thank the kaal's management for arranging our amazing itinerary and special thanks to Regzin our driver from our back up vehicle and lundup restaurant manager for packing amazing lunches for us .

A family trip which was an unforgettable trip to leh . We booked our tour via Thomas cook as the Kaal is partnered with them. They planned a customized 6 night / 7 days and we had a great stay. The first night we were advised to stay in the hotel as we need to acclimatize to the altitude. We spent the day at hotels garden. The next 5 days we were hustling and bustling in and around leh to cover all the tourist places , the food at the hotel in leh, Nubra and Pangong had a good spread and they made sure we were served on the table as we were pure vegetarians. We thank the hotels for catering to our customized itineraries. The experience has made us to visit again and we will be back to leh for another trip. Hope fully soon :)

We stayed here for 4 nights and found the hotel to be a basic budget hotel. Since we booked better quality room, it was fine. However downside was there are no fans in rooms and at times it becomes suffocating due to lack of ventilation. Food in restaurant was basic, nothing great but bad part is unfriendly staff in restaurant. Other staff was ok. Room was large and bathroom was also fine. Cost of taxi to market was about Rs 300. There is a small lawn in the hotel which was fine. Hotel is also closer to Airport. Overall hotel is ok if you are on smaller budget.
