“We welcome you to a blissful corner of Leh, the perfect place to begin your journey in and around the Ladakh region. Relax and acclimatize for a couple of days, absorbing the beauty of the mighty Himalayas and enjoying organic world cuisine.”

The Camp is situated near a typical Ladakhi village, about a 10 minutes drive from Leh and promises an enchanting view of the Indus River. The owners are a French man and his Khasi wife, the team of workers employed are from Leh itself. Set with an aim of understanding nature, it offers a serene and rejuvenating environment. Spread over more than 300 meters along the river, surrounded by thick seabuckthorn bushes, mountains and sunshine, it sure is a dream-like place. Sit under a starlit sky, surrounded by moonlit mountains and shimmering river.
Stay is provided in Luxurious Swiss tents. The rooms are filled with everything ecofriendly, even the bedsheets are Organic! The tents have a comfy bed and all creature comforts one can imagine. Each tent has its own private sitting area where one can relax, read a book during the day or gaze at the moonlit sky in the evenings. The river Indus flows by providing an excellent setting to the camp.
The bathrooms do not have showers as the area has a low water pressure, the hosts really appreciate and encourage bucket bathing as it helps in saving about 15 litres of water per bath! With the water table of Ladakh falling each season, it’s a wonderful way of saving water. Hot water is provided on request.
