    There is 2 nos of Peacefull home stay at Merak on the google map and in between the Dorjay Delbu guest house is situated. I just want to know that is there really 2 nos of Peacefull home stay exist? Because if there are 2 nos of Peacefull home stay then I want to book the closer one to the lake, which is ahead of Delbu guest house.

    Hello Sir,

    Thank you for your previous reply. I have another confusion.

    Which one would be better to stay there, the closest one to the lake of Peacefull Home Stay which is closer than Dorjay Delbu Guest House or the Dorjay Delbu Guest House ?

    The website of these homestay says that the price of the Closer one to the lake of Peacefull Home Stay is INR 1800 for double bed room with dinner and breakfast and the price of Dorjay Delbu Guest House is INR 2000 with the same and the price of further most Peacefull Home Stay is INR 2000 with the same.

    I have called the owner of Peacefull Home Stay. He said that the price would be INR 2000 for the same.

    WOW ... Rs. 2000? That is outrageous. Those guest houses aren't even that good. I stayed at as a paying guest in Merak in 2013 and payed only Rs. 300 for a room, can you believe it? Do not book, just reach there and strike a deal. If they do not come down from Rs. 2000 then talk to the villagers and they will let you stay as a paying guest for lesser price. If you do not find anything, then pay Rs. 2000 then but at least take a chance before you do so. As a general rule, do not book anywhere in advance in Ladakh, you will just end up paying more if you do.
