Ladakh is a very remote area with a challenging geography, and Alchi is a very small village in this region with the closest town being Leh, almost 70 kilometres away. Most of the time the electricity or phone lines are not working and your cell phone may not catch a signal. So once you are here, you are more or less cut off from the rest of the world. No, we are not trying to scare you away. We think Alchi is a wonderful choice. Honest. But it’s always a good thing to be prepared for the worst. The following emergency contacts belong to the Leh region.  

  • Police: 100/ +91-1982-252018/ 252283/ 254881

  • Ambulance: 102

  • Hospital: +91-1982-253626/ 252014/ 252360 (Sonam Norbu Memorial Hospital or SNM Hospital)

  • 24-hour Pharmacy: +91-1982-252160

Keep these numbers handy and pray that you don’t enter into an emergency situation here! And don’t forget to pack your First-aid box.
