Visitors to India may find themselves challenged to experience
as much as they can in a limited timespan. The subcontinent is a
vast and vibrant place, rich with culture, history, natural
wonders, and extraordinary landmarks. It can be difficult to
balance an itinerary when there's such a wealth of things to see
and do. For those who've settled into a beautiful luxury hotel,
it's also tempting to stay put and enjoy all that the venue has to

elaborate, and the nomadic facilities bring guests closer than ever
to the country's rivers and mountains, wildlife and retreats, and

From the Himalaya Mountains to the River Indus, the camps are
set up in extraordinary but typically difficult-to-access areas.

interested in visiting especially remote destinations. Whether

a guru hidden away in the mountains, the camp provides
accommodations that would otherwise be difficult to find.

The Ultimate Travelling Camp currently operates three primary
facilities. The first, the Kohima Camp in Nagaland, is set up in
the hard-to-reach northeast region of India, inhabited by the Naga
people, whose vibrant and traditional tribal culture is utterly
unique. This camp's set-up typically coincides with the region's
Hornbill Festival, an incredible look into the region's 16 tribes
and their colourful rituals and celebrations.
The colourful Thiksey Monastery
The next itinerary, the Chamba Camp in Thiksey, brings guests to
the mountainous Ladakh region, close to the border with China.
Framed by rugged, snow-capped mountains, the camp is located near
to the remote Thiksey Monastery. Visitors can go on tours of the
landmark, try out their rafting and archery skills, and also engage
in a rousing game of polo.
Finally, the Chamba Camp in Diskit invites visitors to discover
another corner of wild Ladakh. Here in the Nubra Valley, where the
Nubra and Shyok Rivers meet, guests will encounter colourful and
cosy village life against the backdrop of dramatic mountain peaks.
There's no better way to discover the region than by spending time
in nature, and experiences ranging from monastery and cultural
tours to cycling trips and rafting outings allow just that.
