A Legendary Quest. A Peerless Camp.

Hemmed in by jagged ridge lines and snowy peaks, the Trans – Himalayas of
Ladakh, India, are home to the world’s most elusive big cat,
the Snow Leopard.

Here lies a journey beyond compare – a search for the Ghost of the Mountains.

Be our guest, on the roof of the world.

The LUNGMĀR, red valley in Ladakhi and Tibetan, is named for the iconic mountains that surround us.

Beyond medieval Tibetan Buddhist Monasteries and past ancient shepherding hamlets, our spectacular location and timeless Silk Road feel strike the perfect balance between remote luxury and rugged adventure.
