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 offer.

From the Himalaya Mountains to the River Indus, the camps are set up in extraordinary but typically difficult-to-access areas. The Ultimate Travelling Camp is an especially popular choice amongst those seeking out seasonal events as well those who are interested in visiting especially remote destinations.

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 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.
