There is a shortage of electricity, water and food items( especially in off season ).  Therefore, each hotel here tries to conserves energy and sometimes turns of power supply during the day & at night. So come mentally prepared about this.

  1. Reiterating point 1 again. Ladakh is not a luxury destination. You do not get the comforts you would normally expect from other destinations.
