“Arro Khampa” is a warm hearted greeting in the eastern Tibetan “Kham” dialect. These words pay homage to the ancient tradition of welcoming caravans and travelers along the Ancient Tea Horse Road with a firm invitation to sit down, warm up, and take nourishment and respite from the rigors of travel. It’s English equivalent is “Hey friend, I bid you welcome.”Such greetings underlined the inherent risks and sense of adventure along one of the world’s great trade routes. It expresses the essential need for camaraderie and communion. Arro Khampa Boutique Hotel name is an evocation of the long history of the hotel’s site. Local people in Gyalthang refer to the hotel’s location as the “Nansuodhak” -- the manor house of the Tibetan magistrate of days gone by, who hosted traveling merchants from as far as Lhasa and from the tropical southern border between Yunnan and Burma, supported local scholars and monks, and was a pillar of the community.

Cozy and modern rooms, fast Wifi and good breakfast. Friendly staff and the location is hard to beat walking distance to Shangri-La oldtown. Also great views from our room. We'll definitely stay here again when back in Shangri-La!

My wife and I are 2 int’l teachers who were stuck traveling in China for the '21 summer and we stayed here 2 nights while traveling through Yunnan. The nights were quiet as not many people were out traveling in this area yet. We were greeted w/ ginger tea and told to drink lot of water at this high elevation before seeing our room. Our room had a comfortable double bed and amenities galore; robe, slippers, free water, soda and different teas. The bathroom was modern with more amenities and it passed my wife’s “excellent water pressure” test. The breakfast the next mornings was impressive as you could choose between a local or western breakfast. There was also a selection of pastries, breads and cereals too. The location was quiet w/ a great view of the hill-top temples. A simple 7 to 8 minute walk was needed to see the dancing in the square every night and shops. Highly recommended!

Had a lovely stay at the Arro Khampa, conveniently located at the edge of the old town Dukezong. Decor is beautiful with high ceilings of exposed wood and Tibetan art and pieces throughout the hotel. Service is very friendly with ginger tea on arrival and hot yak milk delivered at 9pm to your door. Breakfast and transfer to airport included - good western and Chinese options. Slippers, robes and free drinks/fruit in room. Cute deck on top for drinks and star gazing. And the hotel dog Mantou is super cute - he will take 1 RMB from you to go buy himself a sausage. Only con is that we were in room A102 which can get quite loud, but understandable for the old style mansion. Highly recommend.
