Welcome to The Indus River Camp
Open From 28th April to October 10th 2023
A 20-minute drive from the airport is all it takes to reach our 40-acre natural sanctuary.
8 glass-fronted rooms sit on the banks of the Indus, capturing a panoramic view of the river and the local monasteries. One 1,250 square feet villa, with a kitchen, living room and a bathtub, sits in a secluded part of the land, with its own pond and views of the Trans-Himalayan range. The remaining space is kept natural and sympathetic to wildlife.
The property, on the outskirts of Leh and close to local monasteries, offers a great base for exploring Ladakh, whilst staying in nature.
By day, explore the grounds, go on local hikes, visit surrounding monasteries and palaces, take in local culture or go rafting, trekking, cycling or motorbiking. Or pick a book from our well-curated library and read to the sound of flowing water.
In the evening, we take guests for a riverside sunset walk, after which the milky way becomes visible with the naked eye. Sit out under the open sky by the warmth of an open fire and look out at the moon and planets through our camp telescope (Saturn taken by a smartphone below).
We recognise the importance of tasty, health-conscious food on holiday.
We create innovative set-menus, focussing on fresh, locally sourced ingredients, with contemporary cooking techniques.
We run our camp on principles of equality.
We ask that our guests remain polite to all staff and guests, regardless of nationality, caste or religion.
The land is a large space, home to a variety of wildlife. We aim to preserve the natural environment, as well as the peace and sense of seclusion that our guests seek.
