Why We Love This Hotel :

History: Ladakh is known as the home of the Lamas, the 15th-century Thiksey monastery its stunning centerpiece. 

Service: An indulgent 24-hour butler service is provided to each tent at Chamba Camp Thiksey.


Travelers are more than welcome to spend downtime just enjoying the luxury of their tents, but there’s plenty to do in Ladakh. There are rivers, mountains, wildlife reserves and historic monuments and buildings to explore, and Chamba Camp makes a great base.
