We were 3 families traveling together. We booked this homestay based on the reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed at all. Amazing family that takes care of everything you need. Mr Tashi took my daughter to hospital on day one when she was not well on the first day of arrival. Provided very good care for us during our stay. There is common room with amazing view that was cherry on the cake. Not to forget the local food they cooked for us which was really amazing. I will recommend this to all families.

Loved every minute of our stay at Tukchu home stay. This will without doubt be my base, everytime I visit Ladakh henceforth. Located just below the Shanthi Stupa, it isn’t quite walkable from the market, but the calmness of the surrounding makes up for that. Mr.Tashi’s family and staff left no stone unturned to ensure maximum comfort during our stay. They served up amazing stories about the history of the region, kept us well-fed with great food, and ensured all rooms were well-heated throughout our stay. The rooms are well-appointed, spacious, and really neat bathrooms. The highlight for me was the common sitting room with it’s heating and the views of the mountains. Must be easily amongst the top #3 homestay options in Leh.

We recently went to Ladakh and was welcome in the amazing serene home of Tashi ji. The room was very comfortable and his collection of books was enriching. Tashi ji made sure that everything was smooth during the trip, taking care of permits, suggesting guest houses in nubra valley, and guiding with the do's and don'ts in the territory which welcomes you with less oxygen yet abundant sunshine, warmth and smile. He introduced us to our driver Paldan ji, who was fierce on the wheels yet an amazingly awesome human being. Last but not the least would like to express my gratitude for Mrs Tashi and Ms Dolma for working so hard to take care of each and every needs of the guests. Their relentless,tireless and ever smiling efforts made our stay memorable and joyous

Tukchu Home-Stay is located right below the Shanti Stupa and is a beautiful place in Leh with good view of Leh Valley. Host family is sweet and hospitality is beyond words. Rooms are very clean with hot water available at your convenience. Host Mr. Tashi has very good knowledge on the history of Leh, Ladakh and Ladakhis. Although, the family is very busy, they allocated enough time to talk to me and shared many exciting memories. They have good collections of books. Host Lady and her family provided me with sumptuous breakfast and dinner during my stay. They helped me to plan my tour, hired me the best drivers and cars which helped me to see Ladakh in a very efficient way. Thank you Tukchu Home-Stay! I am really happy to recommend you Tukchu Homestay for your pleasant stay in Leh. With best wishes

We were 4 friends that stayed at Tukchu homestay for 5 days in Sept 2019. Tashi, the owner of the homestay was very helpful in every aspect of our trip to Ladakh. He gave us info on the ground situation in Leh following its declaration as a Union Territory and assured us that there was nothing to be worried about. He gave valuable input on bike renting shops (the bike we rented were indeed decent) He also helped us organize our trip to Tso Moriri - he got us a room at a guesthouse in Karzok, planned the routes to and from Karzok. He also gave valuable suggestions on how to avoid traffic restrictions caused by Ladakh marathon on the day we were meant to leave for Karzok The entire household ensured that we felt welcomed and as part of the family. Tashi's wife, Kishore, and didi cooked good food for us, sometimes even on short notice. They would constantly ask us if we needed tea, to which the answer was always a resounding YES! The homestay itself is well located, at the bottom of the Shanti stupa, the rooms are comfy and there are a wide variety of novels to read in your spare time. Staying at Tukchu shed light on the Ladakhi lifestyle, something that we failed to experience in our visit in 2016 when we stayed in hotels. Also, when the time came to settle bills, we tried to be smart and attempted a bank transfer; completely forgetting that the OTP would be sent to our defunct phone number (our SIM cards don't work in the state of J&K). Tashi was understanding and said it was okay to settle the bills once we reach Delhi - now there's something you would hear only from Tukchu! A trip to Tso Moriri from Leh is a long and grueling one, where anything could go wrong. Nevertheless, we went ahead with the trip knowing full well that Tashi would come to our rescue if we needed him. I highly recommend Tukchu homestay. Do consider it if you are traveling to Leh. Neat, clean, good food and easy on the pockets!

Tashiji and family was very welcoming and helpful. They see to it that you are updated with all the required details/things to carry and enquire about your trip and make sure you are all comfortable and ready to enjoy the beautiful Ladakh. This place is located very near to Shanti Stupa. Leh market is little far(not walkable). But the serene and beauty of this homestay surrounded by mountains, clear sky at night(with stars clearly visible),a beautiful little garden maintained by the homestay make you feel very relaxing. Home-cooked food is provided by them (in case you want to opt for). We took our meals here only and it was pretty good. They have a cozy hall where you can relax read some books looking at the beautiful flowers, apple, apricot, and cherry trees along with snow-capped mountains.

We stayed at Tukchu for 4 days and were really happy that we opted for it. Its one of the best places for a homestay experience in Leh. The host family and their manager are warm, loving and take genuine care of you. Rooms and service - Rooms are spacious and clean, equipped with all necessary amenities. Anything more was just a "Kishoreji" away. Since we were biking across ladakh, we dropped our excess luggage with them everytime. WiFi availability was a bit erratic probably coz of technical reasons. Location - Best part of tukchu is its location. Away from the hustle bustle, people, vehicular sounds and lights of Leh market area, it's amazingly peaceful and silent here. Having said that it is just a 5-7 min ride (15-20 min walk) to the main market area. Shanti Stupa is a short walk away. Food - they serve Indian meals which is freshly prepared and super delicious. The dining area has traditional seating which adds to the experience. The garden area (with lots of flowers and plants) is perfect for breakfast and evening tea. They provided us with hot drinking water any time we asked (Which was a lot of times) The Hosts and the Experience - Mr. Tashi and his entire family and their manager Kishoreji are amazing hosts and people. We had countless conversations with them on varied topics. It was such a wonderful experience staying at Tukchu that at the end of it, we felt a connect with the place and the people. And thats what matters. Highly recommended.

Tukchu has several things going for it - good price; cleanliness; spacious rooms with attached modern bathrooms; large and comfortable common areas; tasty, though simple, home cooked food; and a friendly and helpful Mr Tashi. At our request, he arranged a cab and driver for our entire stay to travel in and around Leh. Both the car and the driver were good and the price fair. Tukchu's location is not the best - away from the market, not a shop within walking distance, isolated area, and bad approach roads. Being a homestay, there were issues such as no electricity (long periods over 3 days), mostly erratic WiFi, and not enough hot water when the skies were overcast since the property has a solar heater. Mr Tashi made sincere efforts to mitigate these issues that were beyond his control. His positive attitude and kind nature are heartening. His wife, however, is not equipped to handle demanding situations. For every difficulty we faced, her common refrain was "This is a homestay not a hotel". She could learn a lot from her husband, who is both patient and proactive
