A land of varying landscapes, from white deserts to blue lakes, snow-capped mountains to lush valleys, Ladakh, like a dream captured in a snow globe, is a wildly beautiful milieu set between the Kunlun Mountains and the Himalayas.
Stay at Chamba Camp, Thiksey, surrounded by a stark landscape of ever-changing colours, as the chanting of prayers echo in the silence amid the mountains…
There is a Buddhist word which best describes such an utopia, "Shangri La", an Earthly Paradise - an oasis of peace and tranquility; this word best describes the camp and its many bespoke services.
The blessed and serene hamlet of Thiksey lies at an altitude of 3, 500 mtrs (11, 550ft) a.s.l. Located in the shadows of the famed and iconic Thiksey Monastery , this used to be a brown , barren and rocky moraine now converted into a Green Zone with 03 water bodies and also an organic garden .58 people from the local Thiksey village community have also been directly absorbed into various job capacities within the campsite. They have assimilated their traditional, local knowledge to make our Campsite organic and sustainable. We work closely to imbibe all the pre-requisites of Responsible and Green Tourism, in and around the vicinity of our Chamba Camp, Thiksey.
The aesthetic feel of the Campsite has been inspired by the explorers of the British Raj, who came to these distant frontier regions to undertake covert operations in mapping these uncharted region and made Ladakh their "listening posts".
In many respect, the concept is to relive, through our special curated itineraries, the glories of British Raj who came to these frontier places during the era of the Great Game . This is evident from the many period furniture that lie within your tent, like the Kipling Stool, Roorkee Chair, Jorhat chair, Wheeler Cot etc.
All this and more, enclosed within the periphery of a secured private area ,making it an indeed a perfect Shangri La for you.
