The Namgyal dynasty traces its origin to its founder –Lhachen Palgygon as early as 10th century. You are entering a historical property and the Palace stands almost 200 years old.
The four-storied building is stately on the outside and mysterious inside, its shaded corridors and courtyards lead you into beautifully colourful spaces. Perched majestically on top of a ridge, the palace offers breath-taking views of the Indus valley from many of the rooms.
The palace exudes its traditional charm with low doorways and enigmatic corridors and affords the simple luxury of a comfortable bed, well furnished suites and elegant en-suite bathrooms. The suites are located on different levels of the palace. There are 4 Standard Suite Rooms, The Royal Suite and The Queen’s Room to choose from.
Please note that we do not have WiFi, TVs air-conditioning or intercoms in our rooms.

The Stok Palace was opened to public in 1980 with blessings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It encapsulates and reflects the lifestyle and history of royalty set in the midst of the valley of Singey Sangpo which is popularly known as the Indus River.
Standard Suite Rooms
Each of the 4 suite rooms are unique spaces in different parts of the palace. The well-appointed rooms with en-suite bathrooms exude ample charm and capture the essence of Ladakhi simplicity.

The most exclusive and most favoured room, it gives one the feeling of being enclosed in history with the gorgeously adorned walls. Recreated to resemble the Queen’s quarters with curios and photographs. The balcony overlooking the Indus valley is another highlight of this suite.
