Lama hotel is in fact not a village but a place with handful of teahouses. Lama hotel is at an elevation of 2480 meters from the sea level and its original name is Changthang. The reason behind this place being famous by the name of a hotel is that Lama hotel was the only accommodation back in days. There were about half a dozen teahouse before the earthquake but there are around 4 now. Almost all the lodges provide attached bathroom as well as food.
