Tibetan Hospitality at its best

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 14, 2004

The Chonor House is perhaps the best hotel in McLeod Gang. The hotel is located very close to the Dalai Lama temple. The climb from the temple road to the entrance of the hotel is a bit steep.

The room rates start from around Rs. 1,500 for double occupancy. It is better to book a room in advance since the hotel sees a lot of visitors throughout the year. The hotel is equipped with a good restaurant that serves authentic tibetan cuisine, cakes and deserts.

Unique Quality: Chonor House offers visitors a virtual tour of tibet. Each room is based on a different theme and has rich murals painted by tibetan artists around it. The murals are based on themes such as - Wild Life, Tribes, Opera, Myths and Legends of Tibet.

Directions: On the road going from the bus station to the temple, steep climb on your left very close to the temple.

Art in the middle of mountains!

So there was one hotel that caught our eye, in the midst of all the mundane ones..the Chonor House located at a quaint spot between the Monastery and the main roads offered rooms that were uniquely decorated as per themes...there were rooms based on floral themes, others on drama..and each seemed to outdo the other!

The most expensive in the area amd yet highly reasonable, it's usually always booked,so do plan in advance. Also, it's run by the Dalai Lama's sister, so that;s an added attraction!

Breakfast was simply divine...huge portions of mango (if you come in the right season) and banana stuffed pancakes with honey, and juices and smoothies and eggs...yes, the menu's quite large! And if you've been dining everywhere else, you'll find this place slightly steep ..but the beauty of McLeod is that you're bound to be able to afford everything. Considering the views and the gourmet food, they could up it 10 times and we'd still be pleased! :)

How far is Chonor House from other restaurants, market area, sights to be seen etc? No steep climbs or stairs to reach the Hotel? I have a knee problem so I am concerned.
