Luxury Camp

The Detail

The premise of the Ultimate Travelling Camp is that it moves around India depending on the season, and in the summer months it moves to the dramatic grounds of Thiksey Monastery when the weather is best in Ladakh. You feel that you are completely off-the-beaten-track, yet the luxury tents provide you with all the comfort you want by night. There are just 18 air-conditioned tents here overlooking the monastery which rises up above the grounds. Expect to find en-suite bathrooms with hot showers, four-poster beds and fixtures and fittings worthy of a luxury hotel. The food is exceptional, and served in the main dining tent provided by a superb team of staff. The reason why you come to Ladakh is for what you do by day, whether it is exploring remote Tibetan Monasteries, walking or cycling through remote villages far away from other tourists, or just looking up at the stunning mountain scenery. Combine the Ultimate Travelling Camp at Thiksey with the even more remote camp at Diskit in the Nubra Valley for the ultimate experiential journey.

Millis Potter Insight

We absolutely adore the Ultimate Travelling Camp as it truly allows you to get off-the-beaten track in style. Many guests ask how it compares to Shakti Ladakh. In many ways, Shakti is a far more ‘rustic luxury’ experience and at the Chamba Camp you find everything far more refined, elegant and sophisticated. The staff at the Ultimate Travelling Camp are superb in every way, and the food is delicious. We can’t recommend a visit here more highly, it’s simply one of our absolute favourites!
