The Camp

The LUNGMĀR's Accommodations

Exclusivity and an intimate approach to the wilderness are key features of the LUNGMĀR. We have just ten tents in two different styles for adventurous travelers in search of the grey ghost.

Two large geodesic dome tents, the SHAN SUITE Suite and the IRBIS SUITE, offer great comfort and space, with en-suite bathrooms. Eight Quonset-style KURKHANG Tents offer a traditional take on the remote bush camp. They provide a warm and well furnished bedroom in the main tent and separate showers and toilets.

All of the LUNGMĀR’s accommodations are centrally heated and beautifully appointed. Tents feature hand-knotted Afghan rugs, Tibetan inspired furniture, king or twin sized beds, and comforts unseen before in remote winter accommodations in High Asia.

Butler service brings you whatever you may require, right to your tent.


THE SUITES

Both suites have spectacular south-facing views of the mountains. The centrally-heated geodesic domes are richly carpeted, decorated with carved Ladakhi woodwork, and have en-suite bathrooms with a sink, shower and toilet. Guests can access the sauna at our Hammām whenever desired.

For larger families, we recommend booking both Suite tents - they are near each other.


THE KURKHANG

Starting from INR 49,900 per night

Our KURKHANG Tents are designed for warmth and comfort. They have taken years of R&D and testing to perfect for our needs. These tents provide a classic ‘bush glamping’ experience. In Ladakhi, KURKHANG translates to tent home - an ideal description for this comfortable bedroom in the wilderness.

Utilizing hand-stitched canvas, custom insulation, central heat, and furnished with one king sized or two twin beds, the unique structures offer great warmth. Guests staying in a KURKHANG have access to the LUNGMĀR Hammām. Our Hammām is a modern interpretation of a Turkish Bath combined with a banya, a traditional Russian sauna. The Hammām is a heated stone building, with private shower rooms and a small wood-lined sauna.

The KURKHANG Tents share a cluster of heated, environmentally friendly, composting toilets.

Art, Texture, Textile

The entire camp celebrates the glorious heritage of the Great Silk Road and our location on it.

Local materials, used all over the camp, give a deep sense of place. Richly hued red and green rocks from our valley blend perfectly with carved local wood beams and roofs. The textures connect you to the great mountains that surround us - the workmanship to our neighboring communities.

The tents continue this exploration of the region and the Great Road. Stone framed beds ground our guests to the land, while the textiles used within perfectly blend a high-end safari with the expedition life.

Hand-embroidered throw pillows, Afghan killims, and downy duvets are paired with spectacular paintings by Nicholas Roerich, the acclaimed 19th century Russian painter who traveled the Silk Road in the 20s. Each tent has unique art work.

The SUMDO SARĀI has incredible old maps cataloging the documentation of High Asia's rugged terrain over two hundred years of exploration during the Great Game between Czarist Russia and Great Britain.
