Rumbak, nestling in the Ladakh mountain range.
Rumbak is a tiny mountain village nestling in a valley deep in the Ladakhi mountain range. There is no road leading to it and having been dropped off at the entrance to the valley we began the slow five hour walk along the well worn pony track that serves as the route. On arrival at the village we were greeted with a friendly “Where are you going?” and having explained that we were looking for somewhere to stay we were ushered into a nearby house and offered a very basic room consisting of a table and three mattresses on the floor. The room rate included three meals a day and full use of the family’s long drop toilet. Perfect, we stayed for two nights.
