Luxury camping tours are one of the hottest travel trends in 2015. Combining the best of both camping and a luxurious vacation, luxury camps are the perfect solution for discerning travelers who are looking for adventure without having to compromise on comfort.
Glamping in India was almost unheard of a few years ago. But today, it is exactly what appeals to travelers who want to try a novel experience. A mix of both ‘glamour’ and ‘camping’ it involves reveling in some of the most scenic environs nature has to offer without having to ‘rough it out’ in the great outdoors. From spacious individually designed tents with end-suite bathrooms, beds, crisp linen and private decks to personal butlers and gourmet meals, luxury camping in India is aimed at those who love the finer things in life and enjoy a standard of living that supports their passion for luxury.
An exclusive experience such as this, demands to be had in a destination that matches its majesty and uniqueness glamping. A destination that is on most everyone’s bucket list, but not as easily explored. A destination such as the strikingly beautiful land of Ladakh!
Nestled in the Himalayas, Ladakh is home to surreal terrain, snow-capped peaks, mighty rivers, myth-enshrined monasteries, breathtaking lakes and a fascinating culture. Its rolling hills stretch as far as the eyes can see, and its soil seems to boast of seven different shades. Its bleak and seemingly barren landscape bely its ultimate beauty. Without doubt, it is this high-altitude ‘Land of Passes’ that is the perfect place to go luxury camping in 2015.
You can be sure that there won’t be a single dull moment during your Ladakh luxury tours. From visiting famous monasteries such as Thickset, Hamis and Achi to sightseeing in Lehi where you can try climbing the 500 steps to the Shanti Stupa to enjoy a spectacular view or get a glimpse of Ladakhi heritage in Munshi House, every day is bound to be filled with delightful experiences and amazing sights. The sport of Polo was first introduced in the country in Ladakh, and if you’ve never had the opportunity to witness a match of this royal game before, then your Ladakh luxury holiday packages provide the perfect chance to do so.
Nature enthusiasts are bound to have an even more wonderful time in Ladakh, since the region is home to about 225 bird species, including the extremely rare Black Necked Crane. And, if an adrenaline kick is what you’re after, rafting down the Indus River and encountering Grade I and II rapids provides an absolute thrill – and if it doesn’t, the splashes of icy cold water on your skin definitely will!
So, if you want to try something different this year, then luxury travel in Ladakh may just be the unforgettable travel experience you’ve been looking for all this while.
