At Chamba Camp, Thiksey travellers get a chance to sample experiences like never before. Like watching a traditional Ladakhi dance performance, feeling spiritual upliftment at an early morning prayer ceremony with the monks of Thiksey Gompa, and watching the sun set over the old city of Leh from the Shanti Stupa. This otherworldly landscape truly is unlike anywhere else on earth.
