Closed to the world until 1974, when tourists were first allowed to visit, Ladakh (often called ‘Little Tibet’) is India’s most remote and least populated region, a high desert land cradled by the mighty Karakoram and Himalayan ranges, home to Mahayana Buddhism for a thousand years. Hotel accommodation in Ladakh is generally of a poor standard but we can now offer you the chance of visiting this fabulous destination in comfort, staying in a luxury tented camp near Thiksey Monastery, operated by the prestigious ‘Ultimate Travelling Camp’ and open only from 15 June to 30 September. An experience never to be forgotten.
The Chamba Camp is the first truly mobile luxury camp in India and covers a calendar of destinations and festivals, introducing the discerning traveller to different adventures in carefully selected exceptional locations in the mountains, deserts, jungles and unexplored countryside. Other destinations currently featured are Nagaland, the Nubra Valley and Kashmir.
The aim is to recreate the magic of old world charm with canvas luxury – some call it ‘glamping’ – and to provide unforgettable experiences.
At the Chamba Camp, Thiksey, relax in individually designed tents (left), with ensuite bathrooms, private decks, crisp linen and the services of your very own butler. Enjoy delicious family recipes, hear stories from specialist guides over fire-lit evenings.
Space is still available on most dates this summer. Please take a look at our Ladakh in Style tour – 9 days from £2,360 excluding international flights.
