Jule, pronounced "Joo-lay" is a wonderful multi-purpose Ladakhi word that means "hello", "goodbye", "please", 'thanks' and "OK". In addition to our Pakistan guide Sadruddin's favourite term of "TK" meaning "OK", we had lots of fun, using TK, OK or Jule. Sometimes all three!

TravelPod Member ReviewsSpic n Span Hotel Leh
The Spic and Span Hotel was great fun. With splendid views of the gorgeous ever changing Stok Kangri Mountain (altitude 6,153 m) and a backdrop of the majestic Zanskar Ranges, this lovely Tibetan styled hotel boasts super friendly and helpful staff, nicely appointed clean rooms and a very pleasant restaurant. We found the food and service very good. We enjoyed relaxing in the small pleasant gardens where we could order food and drinks, including alcohol. Local dance performances were held here also. We would highly recommend this venue.
