Situated in the heart of the ancient city of Leh, The Grand Dragon combines traditional hospitality with contemporary comfort. Luxuriously appointed, the rooms offer double glazing and individually controlled central heating and spacious ensuite bathrooms. Large picture windows open up onto scenic views of some of the city’s most notable buildings nestled against a backdrop of the magnificent Himalaya Mountains, from the snow-capped Stok Kangri Range to the Khardung La Pass.
Freshly baked breads and treats are available at the hotel’s Solja bakery, while favourites from India and around the world are served at Zasgyath, a colourful and traditional Ladakhi setting that boasts magnificent views of the mountains. The elegant Tusrabs restaurant offers authentic Ladakhi, Tibetan and Chinese cuisine. The hotel can arrange yoga and meditation sessions, while the games room is also available for guests to while away a long winter’s afternoon. Guests can also browse the Souvenir Gallery for a selection of pashmina shawls, Buddhist masks, hand-woven rugs, Tibetan pray wheels and intricately carved ornaments.
