“HPTDC tents convenient but uncomfortable”
Reviewed 9 August 2010

The system was not very well-organized, with no facility for determining who was or was not willing to share one of the 4-bed tents with strangers. The beds were small and hard, but sufficiently warm. Anyway, we had to wake up at 4 to get on the bus again, so it didn’t matter much. There was one toilet for woman, and a sink. I’m not totally sure, but I think I got hives while in Kéylang. The buffet dinner was nice and allowed us to chat with other passengers on the HPTDC bus, but the packed breakfast was oily and not nutritious. Overall, it wasn’t a highlight of the trip, but was quite simple so I suppose I wouldn’t mind staying here again, if it weren’t for the fact that I may be allergic to something there.

The hotel overlooks Keylong town and commands majestic views of the valley. It's quite big and the rooms are quite spacious. The fact that it is not inside the town does mean that one requires a vehicle to get around and there is not much to do if one is not in the mood for taking out the vehicle. Staff are very helpful and responsive, although the food could have been better. The only negatives are that they do not have power backup, and also that the cost is a bit steep at Rs. 1600+tax for a double room - this includes breakfast and dinner (veg). There are cheaper options available inside town such as Hotel Snowland, however, the Chandrabhaga is still the place to go to if you want to get away from it all and stay in big, cosy rooms.

if you are travelling within himachal then you must visit keylong and spend 2 nights,its some 6-7 hrs drive from manali via rohtang pass, on the manali-leh highway,however the road are extremely bad,but you get lot of taxis or govt.buses to reach there...
best place to live in keylong is himachal tourism's hotel chandrabhaga, huge clean rooms with 24hrs hot running water,staff hospitality is average but the location of this hotel is the best in keylong...
best place to eat is tashi delek in market or mall road in keylong,reasonable yet wonderfull tibetian and indian food with good ambience.
remember keylong is only open between may through october.
