Venture forth from the luxury tented accommodation to explore a range of different activities. Explore the wonders of Leh, observing unique time-honoured rituals in the home of the last undisturbed Tantric Buddhist population on earth. Watch sports such as polo, brought to Ladakh in the 17th century by the Royal family, or go on guided bird-watching walks along the Indus River with the camp’s resident naturalist. Alternatively, visit ancient monasteries with interiors adorned with beautiful statues and murals, and breathtaking mountain vistas.
A visit to Ladakh, in the heart of the Himalaya and Kunlun mountains offers the chance to revel in unspoilt scenery, taking you back in time to a land with a fascinating culture that remains virtually unchanged by the passage of history.
Experience some of Ladakh’s colourful festivals. Traditionally, the most vibrant festivals were held in the winter months. But some celebrations have now been moved to the summer to make them more accessible to tourists, and to boost the local Buddhist monasteries’ conservation efforts. Travellers should book early to visit Leh during the summer festive season.
"TUTC's Chamba Camp is by some measure the best place to stay in and around Leh. Extremely comfortable and characterful tents, excellent food and, above all, superb guiding anchored to tailored excursions make for a wonderful experience in Ladakh". Amar Grover, Travel Writer
