Situated 150miles (as the crow flies) east of Srinagar, or 260miles by road, Ladakh is renowned for its stark mountain scenery and unique culture and what better way to experience this rugged and untamed region than glamping in Ladakh with Secret Retreats and exploring the region and its fascinating cultures on one of our Leh Ladakh tour packages. Perhaps the least populous region in Kashmir the people who call Ladakh home are of Tibetan descent, and this link is clearly visible in the architecture, traditions and religion of the Ladakhi people. For lovers of wild scenery, incredible mountain scenery, an untamed landscape where man has to live in tune with nature to survive, Ladakh offers all this and more to the traveller. And Secret Retreats has selected from the many hotels in Ladakh the perfect location for your Ladakh holiday.

Glamping in Ladakh Kashmir

Nimmu House, a heritage house built over 100 years ago for a cousin of the king of Ladakh in a small traditional village just outside Leh, Ladakh, is perfectly located for stays in this trekker’s paradise. Offering a choice of rooms within the heritage house or luxury tents in the property’s orchard, Nimmu House is one of the best traditional hotels in Ladakh.

Nimmu’s tents epitomize all that is great about glamping India style, from the breathtaking Himalayan views from your tent’s porch to the floral aromas from the garden and the apricot orchard that the luxury tents are set within. Each of the 7 luxury tents is fitted with a king size bed, perfect for couples planning a Ladakh trekking holiday, or perhaps simply looking for a glamping in Ladakh experience. Ideal for young families too, the spacious porch or ‘chill zone’ of the tent easily converts into a child’s bedroom making it possible to sleep up to two young children with mum and dad in the one tent and still preserve some privacy too. For Ladakh luxury tents, look no further, Nimmu House and Secret Retreats has you covered.

Champions of Ladakhi culture, a stay at Nimmu House offers more than simply luxury tents in Ladakh

The owners and team at Nimmu House have carefully preserved this heritage house into one of the best hotels in Ladakh. Located in Nimmu village about 40minutes drive from Leh, the capital city of Ladakh, work started in 2012 to conserve this historic house in close cooperation with the local community. The villagers were as enthused as the Nimmu House team to be developing and preserving this unique and most historic of the hotels in Leh, and creating a charming boutique hotel where visitors can immerse in Ladakhi culture and history but enjoy the level of comfort and convenience that the modern traveller would expect from any luxury hotel in Leh Ladakh.

With a strong sense of tradition and a strong sense of place Nimmu House offers a choice of Leh Ladakh tour packages that shares with the visitor unique opportunities to experience local lifestyles, local cuisine and engage with the local people and their unique culture.
