“A beautiful home in the valley of mystic Himalaya aka Spiti Valley”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in June 2014

I visited this place with my wife, and two daughters aged 6 years and 6 months. When we arrived at The Nomad's Cottage we were pleased to see a clean and well decorated room. We enjoyed the immense hospitality and friendly nature of staff and Sahil.
We had a plan to picnic on the bank of river and Sahil had a place in mind for this. He suggested a tila about few KMs away and made all the arrangements for us. We spent hours on the bank of river cooking maggie, and other heat-and-eat (Ready to Eat) stuff. I also used the icy cold river water to chill my beer :).
The other thing we liked was the dining area; Sahil himself has done its interior designing. It is ethnic and beautiful in its design and is kept warm by a traditional chimney.
We spent 3 beautiful days in Losar staying at Nomad's cottage enjoying the lovely view of surrounding mystic mountains. We used to sit outside in the sun and spend time talking and just watching snow clad mountains around. All in all it was a lovely vacation well spent.
Oh, yes, about the food: it was decent and homely prepared under supervision of Sahil. And we loved it. And once I even got the opportunity to cook chicken myself.
It was truly a home in the abode of Himalayas.

“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in June 2014

Yes this would be an apt title for our tremendous trip that would not b possible without ND..
It's a great thing to provide such a warmth in all aspects from hospitality to food to environment and top of the all lively gratitude The team depends on the team leader n I must say Sahil that's u n ur gratitude that prevails an aura of positivity at such a place..... When I think about my trip to ND ,I also remember Lotte ji and sonam who were always there to help us around during chandratal trek

ND to me means positive aura ,close to nature and provision like home away from home. unforgettable experience and looking forward to visit Losar again

Would highly recommend this place to all. You can be rest assured

“ND is a Gemstone in the lap of Nature”
Reviewed 4 February 2015 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

Nomads Cottage is the reasons which will definitely improve one’s LOSAR experience. Initially, we had only planned to stay at LOSAR for breaking the journey; eventually we ended up enjoying LOSAR due to high level professional hospitality at Nomads Cottage. Sahil Duggal has created a gemstone in the lap of nature as far as ND is concerned.

Things are kept very simple at ND i.e. a very homely environment. We were asked about menu, were served tea / coffee / snacks etc at any instance we asked for. The food quality was average if you compare it to any mid-size to mega level cities – but in order to be able to serve this to client at such a location is an achievement by itself. We at lease got proper food at ND – rather than Maggie and Omlet being offered elsewhere.

Trained and polite staff, cleanliness (linen, bathroom i.e. over facility) was key as ND is the only accommodation in LOSAR to offer that hygiene.

Next time we will not break the journey – we will specify ND @ LOSAR in particular

“A warm oasis in the cold desert”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

When you reach there the first words that came to my mind were serenity and tranquality.

We stayed in the first week of October while visiting the Chandratal. Almost the end of the tourist season when most of the tented accomodations around the lake had closed for the season.

The place is set in a scenic surroundings with snow capped peaks and the laid back Losar village in the background.

We were so happy to find neat rooms and cozy beds. During the full moon night, the view from the window of our room was just amazing. The shining peaks, twinkling stars and the glow from the houses in Losar looked beautiful. The staff is welcoming and helpful. They made our stay both comfortable and wonderful.

I would recommend Nomads Cottage to anyone looking for a quite and memorable getaway from the bustle of city life. Wishing ND all the best.

“an experience to reminisce and revisit”

people found this review helpful

My friend and I stayed at the Nomad's Cottage for a couple of nights during our escapade to Spiti Valley earlier this year and could not stop raving about it since we left. An excellent property set in a breathtaking location, run by an extremely warm and hospitable group of locals under the guidance of Sahil, who is the man behind this amazing project. No amount of praising is enough. The rooms are aesthetically pleasing and impeccably clean, the bed and bath furnishings are immaculate and the food,apart from being delicious, is served with so much love that it makes you feel at home. The dining space is warm and cosy and perfect for unwinding. We bonded with the staff so effortlessly and could not be more grateful for their kindness and simplicity. A special mention for Nomadic Destinations for arranging my trek from Kumzum la to Chandratal lake, and my guides Norbo and Gonpo, for being my rock throughout the journey. Also Kunga for being so agile and energertic, who helped us with our ride back to manali. I vouch for the the honesty and sincerity of the entire team and wish them my very best. I strongly recommend Nomad's Cottage to every traveller and I can't wait to go back.
