Owned by Dorjay Stanzin and Abdul Rashid, famed conservationists and snow leopard trackers, the Lungmar Remote Camp is the world’s best destination for seeing the Ghosts of the Mountains.
At almost 4,000 meters above sea level in the heart of 25,000 hectares of unique habitat, this remote bush camp is centered around a phenomenal encounter with nature. Alongside an award-winning team of conservationists and trackers, trek across the roof of the world.
All guides have over two decades of experience, and craft legendary tours which reveal the great mysteries of the mountains. Beside a glacial stream, walk through ancient valleys and look out for Tibetan wolves, blue sheep, brown bears, ibexes and birds of prey patrolling the skies above.
Number one on the list is the snow leopard, which can be found in Hemis National Park at a higher concentration than anywhere else on earth. The largest national park in India, and the only one which is situated north of the Himalayas.
A landscape shaded in deep purple and red hues reflect over 100 million years of geologic action. Remote Tibetan Buddhist Monasteries are beacons of human history throughout the otherwise vast and desolate landscape.
Where the climate is cold, the people are warm and welcoming. Ladakhis welcome guests to explore the rich culture and history on village walks, visits and monastery tours. The lodge strikes the right balance of stripped back and authentic with comfort and elegance. It provides an inviting refuge from outdoors.
Typically, days begin at 7am when the camp is alive and the expert trackers begin their daily mission. The light in the valley is a premonition for a day filled with new encounters and beginnings in a deeply historic and ancient landscape.
With each visit, Lungmar Camp contributes $350 towards predator-proofing the local community’s land to reduce the conflict between agricultural communities and the leopards.
