Your Host and The Team


“Chospa Hotel was built with immense love and importantly to bring the beauty of culture, tradition and architecture of Ladakh closer to every traveller. The ethos and philosophy of Chospa Hotel is to warm your heart through sincerity, care, kindness, passion and friendliness. The architecture of Chospa mirrors traditional Ladakhi construction, rendering an ambience familiar to locals and unique for visitors. It houses its guests in the raw patina, texture and density of earth walls that have been fabricated by local craftsman in the traditional way. These walls, built from earth blocks produced in-situ, mimic the thickness, buttress-like geometry, hues and tactility of vernacular Ladakhi architecture. Windows are narrow to maximize thermal comfort and the woodwork pays homage to traditional iconography and geometry. Together, the earth, stone and wood create a sanctuary that shares a true sense of place with all of our guests. ”
