Gemoor Khar is a bed & breakfast located just off the Manali-Leh highway in the village of Gemoor. The property was built in 2002 and started operating as a home-stay around 2010.
The property contains 3 large bedrooms with independent bathrooms, running hot and cold water, restaurant, a living-cum-dining room, gardens, a sun room, and parking space for cars and motorcycles. There is 24x7 staff on the property to make your stay memorable and pleasurable.
Food, tea, coffee, and snacks are available on demand. The menu is limited to mostly Indian dishes, but guests are free to use the kitchen if they wish to cook their own meals.
For very large parties, the property also has tents that usually accommodate 2 people (twin sharing basis) but can accommodate upto 4 people at a time. The bathrooms for the tent facilities are shared (as is the case for most tented accommodation in the Jispa valley).
Gemoor Khar property has been further developed in 2017. There are 5 more rooms available under the Gemoor Khar BnB listing.
The property is on the main Manali-Leh highway. Gemoor village is located about 5 kms before Jispa, and is smaller and quieter. There are a few shops around, but other than that there are few distractions.
Gemoor does make for a good base for several walks around the Jispa valley. From the Gemoor Khar property, the old Gemoor gompa (Buddhist monastery and temple) is 15 minute uphill walk. From there, it is possible to walk to Khangsar (6-7 kms) which was the seat of the local ruling family till the 1980s. All along you can see great views towards Jispa, Keylong, and the valley.
Other walks from the Khar, are to the Mangala rocks near the river where it is possible to see ancient rock engravings. For the more adventurous, there are trails of the indigenous Gaddi sheep nomads who roam the mountains in the summer months.
