Pioneers of the first truly mobile luxury camps in India, The Ultimate Travelling Camp (TUTC ) introduces the discerning traveller to unique adventures in some of the country’s furthest flung corners. Combining carefully curated and unexpected locations with luxury tented accommodation, guests are able to experience dramatic landscapes, local festivals and cultural events that would otherwise remain undiscoverable. En-suite facilities and private butler service ensure comfort; complimentary ponchos and pashmina shawls are provided for warmth during cooler nights. Striving to be as sustainable as possible, TUTC also aims to leave no carbon footprints behind at the season’s end.
Operating annually between 15 May and 10 October, this camp is positioned in the shadow of the 15th Century Thiksey Monastery within the spectacular snow-capped Himalayas. 11 Luxury Suite and 03 Presidential Suite tents are discreetly scattered throughout the site, allowing for utmost privacy along with uninterrupted views; sophisticated colonial- style furnishings, designer linen and specially crafted Ayurvedic cosmetics adorn the tent interiors for a refined and relaxed feel. Yet it is the experiences here that are unparalleled – join monks at Thiksey Monastery for early morning prayers, take guided walks through remote villages, and embrace the thrill of white water rafting. Spectacular outdoor campfire dinners are arranged, or enjoy outstanding cuisine on a jetty poised beautifully over water bodies.
Prices include flights, 3 nights accommodation with butler service, all meals, non-alcoholic beverages and private transfers.
