Started back in 2010, a standard local homestay with 3 rooms, in a Spiti village, people had hardly heard about . The same 3 bedrooms home has now become a 8 rooms premium homestay property , famously known as 'The Nomad's Cottage ' in Losar, the village which is on the World's Map now and frequently visited . We started with one Nomad's Cottage in Losar and now we have a chain of Nomad's Cottages across the Spiti Valley in the villages of Chicham , Shego (under construction) & Gue (under construction) . Do visit Our Home!

Losar is an untouched beauty. The village has very few houses and very kind and understanding people. Our stay at nomads cottage was both comfortable and memorable. We were fortunate to have hospitality of Mr Sahil who was sooo interesting and very generous. i want to thank him and his hardworking team for their efforts in making us feel at home. i want to thank specially the cooks..they were so patient with me and my demanding children! Thank you once again for your hospitality Smita Tripathi, New Delhi, India
We stayed there for 2 days which we found to be the best stay on the entire trip. The place is situated at beautiful village Losar and can be called as self content in its self. The cottage is very modern with touch of authentic feeling around, the rooms are cozy and clean, the sitting area is the best place of the cottage. The guyz who take care are very friendly and sweet and gets never tiered with your asks. We felt like our own home by meeting new friends, eating homecooked food and jumping all around the cottage as we wanted. Specially we want to praise Sahil Duggal the owner of that heaven on earth to make the place unforgettable. He has been atmost helpful start from planning this trip to staying in the cottage. These 2 days will be cherished in oour good memories Nidhim, Mumbai, India
We reached Losar late afternoon, after a spectacular drive from Kaza. Our mood was bright already, so when we stopped at Nomad's Cottage and was greeted enthusiastically by the hostess, we felt buoyant and happy. Nomad's Cottage reflects the intimate, personal love and care of the Duggals who have set up this very comfortable homestay in the wilderness. They are also helping build a finishing school in the village, so their interest isn't commercial in nature. We were told that Sahil Duggal, the host discovered Losar on a solo biking trip and fell in love ever since. The cottage is tastefully finished, and blends in the traditional Buddhist architecture of the region, with well appointed interiors exuding an earthy, natural ambience. The rooms are clean and welcoming, bathrooms western and like-home (a rarity in the mountains!), but the most cheerful of all is the Tibetan styled living room, where guests and the host gather for an evening chat, drinks, dinner and laughter. If you have a certain kind of taste, you will hit it off. We certainly did. Add to it the hostess's cooking and a bunch of interesting fellow travellers in the cottage-- it was pure bliss.

We crossed the Rohtang La and Kunzum La to reach Losar, a small settlement of about 70 families approximately, beautiful beyond words, and so cold and desolate that you really warm up to the people living there. The Nomads Cottage is a home, not really a hotel in cold Spiti, the real mountains, and not the hills of the Himalayas. You find bonhomie with other people who have made Nomads their temporary home in the warm dining room beside the kitchen. A kitchen with a surprising stock of fresh, contemporary ingredients for a wholesome meal. If it snows, you can curl in the bed with a good book and a hot water bag. Then a visit to see the pristine Chandrataal Lake. Sahil Duggal is passionate about Losar and he will take good care of you. You will not feel cold even if the temperature drops and its snowing outside Swathi, Siliguri, India
After a trek from Langza to Hikkim and drive back from Hikkim to Losar in our tour of the Spiti Valley, six of us , tired travelers , landed at Nomads Cottage, at 8 .30 in the night without a booking for that day and we came to know that the entire place was booked.. In spite of that, we were very warmly welcomed by Sahil , the owner of this beautiful place, and he made arrangements for us to stay for the night promising us some good accommodation the next day.. After wining and dining and hearing some great stories of Spiti Valley from Sahil,who has been an ardent traveler himself, we were off for the day.. The next morning , the most beautiful sight awaited us.. We were in the midst of one of the most picturesque places in the Spiti valley.Excellent location, lovely rooms with awesome views, great food, very helpful staff , the warmth of the place endeared us all:-) This is one place to be if one intends to visit the Spiti valley.. I am going to come back for sure :-) Charul, Gurugram, India

The night sky was the best part.The place and village around is very peaceful and has its own raw beauty. Highly recommended! Jainy S, Mumbai, India
The Nomad's Cottage is perfect for luxurious accommodation that you are looking for after rough travelling in rugged landscape. It is situated 1-2 kms outside of Losar village and well away from main road. It is a beautiful cottage converted from traditional home with typical Spitian-styled windows and white walls. Double occupancy rooms are at upper level, whereas family room is situated at ground level. Rohan, Mumbai, India
