The Chamba Camp is situated at the foot of the Thiksey Monastery and is the first Indian ‘glamping’ experience to date with a wonderful blend of old world charm and contemporary luxury.

Miranda and Rosie are here to help give you the inside track.

Introduced by The Ultimate Travelling Camp (a concept new to India) offering luxurious mobile tented camps, the camps migrate throughout Northern India depending on where the best climates are. Chamba Camp in Thiksey pops up from mid June to the end of September, avoiding monsoon season, which happens to be a particularly good time to visit Ladakh.

The days of buckets of water and working out which tent peg's end is which are a thing of the past, this camp is made up of 18 air-conditioned tents overlooking the Thiksey Monastery. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with hot showers, fine linens and private decks to soak up the views. Oh and each tent has its own butler… fancy!

The beauty of Chamba Camp, besides its rural surroundings, is the fact that it is off the beaten track yet doesn't compromise on luxury. Guests can spend the days exploring nearby remote villages, many Buddhist Monasteries, polo, rafting, trekking and archery, and by night they can unwind at the camp with some gourmet cuisine and relaxed vibes.

The on-site restaurant serves a daily menu of traditional local specialities and international delicacies (many of which are created from family recipes). All meals are prepared with fresh and organically grown produce from the surrounding area. If the restaurant doesn't suit (which is highly unlikely) there are also opportunities to enjoy picnic lunches dotted around picturesque spots.

You can gather around an evening camp fire to mingle with fellow travellers and Ladakh tour guides who impart their wisdom… if you're lucky.
