Nomad Guesthouse and Hostel
Nomad Guesthouse and Cafe is a reincarnation of the Nomad Cafe in Lhasa, Tibet. We opened in Shuhe ancient town in 2007 with the vision to provide a warm, inspiring stay and healthy vegetarian food.
Nomad Guesthouse offers clean, comfortable rooms as well as budget accommodation (single, double/twin and triple rooms) for intrepid travelers, backpackers, cyclists and families alike in a quiet, loungy atmosphere. Bed sheets, linen and towels are provided and hot showers as well as drinking water are available all day. Smoking is prohibited in all rooms. Electric blankets and heaters make sure you will stay comfortable during the colder months of the year.
Nomad Cafe serves freshly-made vegetarian and vegan dishes as well as bakery sweets in a non-smoking environment, with our guests well-being in mind. Family atmosphere can be experienced (and travel-info exchanged) by joining one of Nomads popular inexpensive shared buffets.
Nomad Staff in of international variety and eager to help you finding your way in and around Lijiang, and planning your trip to the highlights in the area. Laundry facilities are available and bicycles can be rented at Nomad. Both the court yard and the second floor terrace are peaceful places for reading, conversing, or just being. Our 'dhamma hall' can be used for practicing meditation, or studying Buddhism by reading books from our collection on 'spirituality'.
Besides making your stay most pleasant, helping those in need is what we care for at Nomad Guesthouse & Cafe. Therefore, proceeds from your patronage go towards supporting community-based projects.
The village of Shuhe is located 6 kilometer north of Lijiang and still breathes those tranquil Naxi vibes that are in danger of being trampled by the crowds in Lijiang Old Town. A local fresh market, a small Tibetan monastery as well as an ATM are all within a few minutes walking distance from Nomad Guesthouse. Minibuses and taxi's depart for Lijiang from the parking lot just 50 meters from our door. The well known yet rustic village of Baisha is a pleasant 6 kilometer bike ride (or walk) through the fields north of Shuhe. We can show or accompany you on the trials in the hills (that start just 500 meter from the guesthouse) for an early morning hike.
