“Can a tent be so cosy?”
Reviewed 30 July 2012 via mobile

We had four tents for six people, each with own attached facilities (including western-style toilet, shower and wash basin.) The tents are eight-sided, but fully curtained right around on the inside, with a white scolloped ceiling, creating a wonderful cosy feeling. Cement floor is fully carpeted, two comfortable beds, warm quilts, a solar powered reading lamp. Wonderful place, on the banks of the Indus River, just to get away from it all. Food (included in price) was adequate but bigger tour groups could consider sending a catering manager ahead with extra supplies, to negotiate with the knowledgeable and very willing cook and his team. We spent two nights, after doing some white river rafting, being a party ranging in age from 7 to 69 years. Would recommend West Ladakh Camp to any age group.

Stayed July 2012, travelled with family

This is no mere 'camp site'. The tents are well constructed, off the ground, and complete with private bathrooms, warm quilts, and comfortable cots. Sitting high above the Indus, it is truly a breath of fresh air after working in Leh. Hike, take photos of the natural surroundings, or just sit outside comfortably reading a book. A wonderful experience! A breath-taking ride from Leh.

I am in Leh doing a project for the summer and have changed my contact lenses 3 times in 1 month from the dust and pollution! I was looking for a quick, quiet and scenic getaway from the tourist season and someone suggested West Ladakh Camp. It was so much better than I ever expected!!! I didn't have much time so it was the perfect retreat - a quick trip to Alchi along the way and then an overnight in the lovely, comfortable tent camp at Ulletokpo. No permits, no haggling for a seat in a shared taxi - easy busride, super food, great little day hikes to Mangyu in Rizdong Monastery. VERRRY comfortable beds!! I highly recommend this as a quick get away from Leh or even to break up the trip to Lamayuru or surrounding areas.

It's a beautiful location to camp during your trip to Ladakh, I had a wonderful time here.
Beautiful location surrounded by willow & apricots tree. Good service, good food.
The tents are neat and clean with attached bath, hot & cold shower. If you have more time at the camp then don't miss the hike up to mangyu & Rizdong village.
