Camping under the stars in Little Tibet


Escape from the plains to this extraordinary camp near Leh surrounded by the mountains and with the River Indus flowing past. Beautiful tents and service combined with a very, very beautiful place!

There are camping trips and then there is this! Tsermang Eco Camp may seem to be trying too hard with its ‘eco’ tag, but if you bear with the name you will discover luxury that is not over-the-top yet impressive given the place you are in. Yes, Leh is as stunning as it is barren, stark as well as startling, but always beautiful with its snow-capped mountains and the shimmering Indus River.

The whole campsite is along the river and you can go for a swim and pick out smooth rocks from the river bed. Pick seabuckthorn from the bushes here, have midnight chats under a starry sky and savour organic food made with yak milk butter. The food is a mix of continental, local and Indian and flavoured to suit most travellers.

Stop at the Tsermang Eco Camp, ideally, after a trek in Ladakh to appreciate it the most. This is an experience of quiet comfort and it is this harmony of luxury and nature that takes this camping experience to the next level. 

Highlights

  • Evening stars surrounded by mountains The welcome and generosity of the local people

In the Same Area:

  • Houseboats on Lake Dal

    Srinigar was once at the end of the great trail north for India's visitors. War put paid to that for many years. Reopened, but still shabby, travel into the far north east of India and experience the peace of Srinigar, the legendary houseboats and the wonderful location

  • Jesus in Kashmir?

    Tales and theories aplenty of Jesus's life after crucification or discover his life during the missing years in the cool icy weather of Kashmir. Hoax or not, Jesus is on the itinerary in Jammu and Kashmir with all roads leading to Roza bal Shrine of Youza Asouph, a preacher who some claim to be Jesus. 

  • Picture perfect Pahalgam

    Enjoy the once favourite shooting location of Bollywood blockbusters where screen lovers ran around trees, singing and dancing in love. Pahalgam is not just a pretty place it is also a town that sees Hindu pilgrims who head out to the Amarnath Cave where stalagmites form a Shivling shape every winter. 

  • Rock Art Hunting in the Himalayas

    It was only a century ago that archeologists discovered the rich heritage in rock art scattered across Ladakh. Why not follow your nose and explore the plateau and riversides of the Indus to find your own prehistoric art. What a wonderful way to attend to the land and its history!

  • Skiing in the Himalayas

    There is something magical about skiing in the Himalayas. In truth it does not match the great European or Rockies resorts, but there are no queues and the skiing is simple like it was 50 years ago in Europe. You got this far, clip on the skiis and schuss away.

  • Stalking a Reclusive Cat

    Catch a glimpse of the endangered and beautiful snow leopard in the arid and remote mountians of Ladakh. Sighting this cat is a thrill as it is famous for its reclusive nature and is a master at camouflage!

  • Whimsical & Scary - On the Road to Leh

    Gasp all the way along the Khardung La road, which is the highest motorable road in India. Why would one do it, you may ask? The beauty of the area and the thrill far outweigh the risks involved on getting the snaking road that seems to grip the mountainside to avoid the big drops below.
