The Ultimate Travelling Camps

Forget your traditional idea of camping. Even ‘glamping’ doesn’t compare. This is Ultra-camping and some of India’s most spectacular and picturesque settings are the destinations.

Ultra-camping will destroy your preconceptions of a life under canvas, but it will also reinforce your most romantic and sensory mind-pictures of India’s remote destinations.

Make a camping expedition part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to India and you will be wafted, in incomparable comfort, to the dramatic scenery, the ethereally beautiful rural landscapes, the colourful culture, the mountains and sacred rivers that symbolise the mystery of the subcontinent.

  • Chamba Camp, Thiksey, Ladakh presents you with polo matches and rafting along the Indus River, picnic lunches and campfire travelogues – amidst ancient monasteries, mountain passes and cobalt lakes.
  • It was a complicated and very individual trip, and several changes were made by me during the planning. None of this seemed to worry Ayesha and everything went according to plan.
