Exclusive Experiences with RARE Properties
Staying at an early 19th century built palace is nothing short of a riveting history lesson. The Stok Palace Heritage Hotel ushers you into the history and traditions of the Namgyals. The old world magic meets natural dioramas at TUTC's Camp Thiksey, where one can retire to luxury after viewing polo games, rafting down the Indus river or spending the day amidst wilderness with only a picnic in your schedule. TUTC's Camp Diskit can be reached by wending on the road north from the Leh Valley, where the two ancient rivers (Nubra and Shyok) meet. Here at Nubra Valley, you're in the land of legendary merchants and monks who walked the trans Himalayan routes for trade and contemplation.
At Chulli Bagh, time stands still, as you unwind amidst apricot, walnut and willow orchards. Easy hikes and treks break the stupor, only to get mesmerized once again with the views as you walk the mountain trails. Nimmu House at 10,000 feet offers an elevated experience of immersing one in local culture and treks, quite literally and otherwise. You have the opportunity to come back to the comfortable embrace of a Ladakhi styled 100-year-old house, where yaks and dzos graze. There's nothing like living the local life. At Snow Leopard Lodge at 13000 feet in the village of Ulley you will be blessed with the company of ibex, yaks, dzos, Himalayan fox, urials, eagles and the elusive leopard. Made for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers, the Himalayan Brown Bear journeys loop from Kargil to Ladakh and back to base to have a first hand experience of Ladakhi tribal villages and scanning the brown bear hotspots with experts.
