This is an amazing location, overviewing Pangong Lake. The tents are 5 mins away from the lake, and as you can see from the pictures, you can see the lake from your tents. The lake is extremely serene and beautiful, and overall has a very peaceful and quiet environment. There are roughly about 15-17 tents lined up in a row, with attached bathroom. As one can imagine, it gets extremely cold in night, and one of the best parts of service is that they provide you warm water bags after dinner, so that you dont die of the cold weather. Coming to food, during tourist season, they provide you good quality vegetarian food (Dont know about Non-veg option). Overall, the experience with Staff, Stay and Food was amazing. Would definitely recommend this place to Families and Honeymooners.…
There is no network connectivity in entire route to pangong. No wifi or network available here, so one can spend their time peacefully in the beauty of nature. Tents are on the side of blue serene Lake. Its chilling cold in evening. The tents were quite ok. One of our tents chain was not working, though it was later fixed. Its very windy.
The tents are ok compared to the place and its natural difficulties. but staff is hopless , they dont have courtsey to speak. Nothing much to review cos its an basic tent just to sleep and get fresh. But view is amazing.
We were told by many that the tents on the sides of the Pangong Lake are not good and expose us to severe cold and strong wind during night. While moving towards the tents, we were also tense and preparing ourselves to face the situation. We saw a large spread of tents spread right from the side of the beautiful lake to the rough sides of the mountains. The first solace was that the tents of Himalayan retreat were on the sides of the lake and we were allotted one on the first row facing the lake. Our concerns melted when we were taken to our tent. It was a cozy small well erected small house like tent with a small sit out, a bedroom with a double cot and mattress with clean and neat linen and winter rolls and a small toilet with a neat wash basin and a European closet with running water. It was evening and the temperature was falling down. When we thought that a hot cup of tea would help us to warm up, there came a boy with a big flask full of hot masala tea and some good biscuits. Since the dining room was a bit away and up the climb, we were told that the dinner will be served in our tent. We were also told that the power which is run on generators will be available from 7 in the evening till 11 in the night. We were provided with neat white towels and some toiletries. The dinner came at 8. It was a good one with hot rotis, rice, salad and some curries. Suprised to note that all the dishes were hot despite freezing temperature outside. Once we went under the warmers, we never felt the chill. We were provided two large rasai and a heavy mink blanket which kept us warm and cozy. During the whole night we could hear the string Himalayan wind beating around the tent but never came in because the tent was strong enough and done well. At 6 in the morning, hot water buckets came along with hot tea which warmed us further. The breakfast was also served at 8 which was aloo paratas, bread butter jam and nice masala tea. We walked on the sides of the lake, enjoyed the morning freshness, the snow mountains on one side and finally packed off to move at 9. It was indeed a lovely experience to stay a night in the tents of Himalayan retreat and enjoy their hospitality. Recommend this outlet for those who are planning to visit Pangong. Thanks Himalayan Retreat and their team for giving us a lovely experience in the tents.…
This is a camp with minimum amenities. Electricity from 8.00 pm to 11.00 pm. Freezing cold Water one bucket for a day. One bucket of hot water in the morning. No internet. No mobile signal. Freezing cold weather. Food served is good. I think the amenities may be the same in this area since the area has no electricity connection. But there may be better ones.
Having to stay in the Himalayan Retreat Camp near Pangong lake was the worst part of my trip to Ladakh. This was a part of the package we bought from Musafir.com. We could not judge the quality from the available reviews and other material on internet. This was a bad decision on our part and we regret it. The camp has around 20 tents for accommodation on twin occupancy basis. The tents are small and look shabby from the outside as well as the inside. The bed linen was dirty. The toilet facility was very basic. Even the tap on the washbasin was broken and use of washbasin meant wetting one’s feet also. The staff had a laid back, don't care and take it or leave it attitude. The dinner was just okay. The staff seemed bored and did not seem enthusiastic in serving. No non veg dish, not even eggs, were served. In the morning we had planned to leave by 7:30 am for Leh and this was clearly told to the staff. But, even after reminding them continuously since 5:45 am, leave aside the breakfast, we were not provided even a single cup of tea till 7:30 am when we left. No hot water was provided in the bath for even washing face. Easily the worst camp in the area. One should definitely look for other options before considering this property.…
horrible chilled weather condition.... couldn't sleep in night. not enough material to protect from chilled air blowing. nothing more to describe as couldnot go out due to weather condition and tent was too cold
The cool and calm place is even more exciting with the presence of large natural lake with lush blue water. The cold night stay in the tent gives a marvelous experience to all tourists young or medium age.
Luxurious camping right on the edge of Pangong. Great food and really hospitable hosts. If you are lucky you might find musicians playing around the campfire. It's very atmospheric with amazing night skies. Thoroughly recommended.
BEAUTIFUL! Its amazing in terms of service, rooms, n food! The staff is very helpful. If you want to just relax and watch the beauty of nature. The lakes add to the attraction of the place. Go at the beginning of the season or towards of the end of the season.
