Michung House is a quiet wonderland in the lands of might dunes. The landscape facing the confluence of Shyok and Nubra rivers is the natural habitat for seabuckthorn, wildflowers, and desert wildlife. The house has been planted with poplar, willow, apricot, and apple trees, along with vegetable gardens. It commands a 360-degree view of the Karakoram mountains, the sand dunes, and the Nubra river. There is a beautiful flower garden in the front and a huge garden of vegetables in the backyard of the homestay from where fresh vegetables are used for meals.
Food:- Simple home-cooked Ladakhi food is served. From traditional firewood Dal Chawal to Mom Mok. Please don’t expect any fancy food as this is not being served here. You can also participate in cooking and learn some recipes from Ladakh.
Experiences:- Michung House is the best to experience the local lifestyle of people from Hunder. Engulf yourself in organic farming, not those dancing way but old traditional way. The people of Michung house will make you understand their lifestyle, how they grow crops and how they cook them. So what you eat is what you pluck. Learn the way to cook Mok Mok while listening to old stories from the dunes. If you feel too homely then take the village walk and see the tourist town in a different way like you never heard of. And still, if you aren't satisfied that go to the dunes we bet those double hump camels will make you feel happy.
