The Ultimate Travelling Camp Chamba Camp Thiksey
  • Amazing luxury camp located in Lakakh in Northern India

  • Totally off the beaten track overlooking Thiksey Monastery

The Ultimate Travelling Camp offers the first truly mobile tented luxury camps in India. They provide camps throughout Northern India and are erected when the weather is best. The camps are located in Nagaland, the jungles of Dudhwa National Park, Srinagar and Ladakh. Chamba Camp in Thiksey, Ladakh is open from mid June to the end of September as this part of India is outside of the rain shadow and does not get affected by the monsoon and it is the best time to visit Ladakh.

The concept of the camps is to take you far off the beaten track, yet have a base that offers all the luxury you want. By day, you can explore to your heart's content - visiting areas that see little or no tourism, and by night retreat to your relaxing camp with excellent food and a luxury tent. It is at the cutting edge of experiential luxury travel and is breaking the mould in offering a fabulous insight into the destination you are exploring, without compromising on your creature comforts.

The camp has 14 air-conditioned tents and overlooks Thiksey Monastery. Each tent offers en-suite bathrooms with hot showers, crisp luxury linens and private decks offering views over the Monastery. Exceptional service is offered from your own valet and the excellent food is provided in a main dining tent, as well as private dining in several idyllic settings such as under a willow tree near one of the three water bodies.

There are a range of wonderful experiences to choose from exploring the many Buddhist Monasteries, walking through remote villages to more active options such as polo, rafting, trekking, cycling and archery.

You can of course combine the Thiksey experience with the Ultimate Travelling Camp at Diskit in the remote Nubra Valley of Ladakh to explore this region of the Himalayas more deeply. There are a host of combinations can also be arranged such as adding a beach element in Sri Lanka or the Maldives after your time in Ladakh making it a great summer honeymoon option, or tailoring a journey to another corner of India.
