Land of the Snow Leopard

Accommodations

Repeater Layout : horizontal
Trident Gurgaon
Location
Gurgaon, India

Voted "Asia's Leading Hotel" multiple times at the World Travel Awards, the Trident Gurgaon is located in the central business district of Gurgaon, part of the New Delhi national capital region, just 30 minutes from the international airport. Designed by Thai architect Lek Bunag, the low-rise hotel is set amid seven acres of landscaped gardens, courtyards, walkways, reflection pools and fountains, creating a resort-like ambience. The hotel's 136 rooms are defined by warm, understated contemporary decor and enjoy serene views of the gardens and manicured lawns or the reflecting pools. Three restaurants feature world, Indian and Japanese cuisine, and an elegant bar offers drinks in a sophisticated setting. A separate pool bar serves beverages and casual fare alongside the magnificent outdoor swimming pool, while a spa and fitness center complete the hotel’s recreation facilities.
The Grand Dragon Ladakh
Location
Leh, Ladakh, India

Situated in the heart of the ancient city of Leh, the 5-star Grand Dragon was among the first luxury hotels to come to Ladakh. Owned and operated by the local Abdu family, who have more than 40 years of experience welcoming visitors to the region, the property's decor features original paintings by Gulam Mustafa, Ladakh's first modern artist, and details that evoke the royal influences of this former kingdom. Rooms reflect Ladakhi culture, with elegant teak furnishings and rick textiles. State-of-the-art amenities include electronic key cards, LED Satellite TV, electronic safes and spacious marble bathrooms with walk-in showers. Rooms have large pictures windows showcasing expansive views of the snowcapped Stok Kangri Mountains, or Khardung La Pass, Leh Palace and Shanti Stupa. The hotel is centrally heated and solar-powered, ensuring comfort and eco-friendly energy sourcing. The hotel restaurant serves Ladakhi, Tibetan, Chinese and Continental dishes, and light refreshments are available at the 24-hour coffee shop, which offers dramatic mountain views through a wall of windows leading onto the al fresco terrace.

Private Snow Leopard Lodge
Location
Mangyu, Ladakh, India

Perched at 12,000 feet at the head of a Himalayan valley, the Snow Leopard Lodge in Mangyu offers a rare private wildlife experience in the heart of some of Ladakh’s finest snow leopard habitat. The intimate accommodation is truly a place to disconnect, without access to TV or Wi-Fi. Inspired by a rural village homestay, the small lodge was created as way to leverage conservation-focused travel to protect endangered snow leopards and their ecosystem. We have exclusive use of the lodge during our stay, placing tourism dollars directly into a community on the front lines of local snow leopard conservation. The lodge provides an optimal base from which to search for snow leopards and other high-altitude Himalayan wildlife while staying in comfort in a rugged setting that is sometimes intensely cold.

Built in traditional Ladakhi architectural style, this simple and inviting five-room lodge features 24-hour electric heat, excellent meals and luxuries like real coffee, comfortable warm beds (including a hot water bottle tucked between your sheets each night), and attached private bathrooms with eco-conscious Western toilets and washing facilities. Hot water is available on demand for bucket showers in your private tiled bathroom. Cozy sitting areas overlook Mangyu's hilly landscape that provides high summer pasture for yak and dzo, a cow-yak hybrid. All meals are homemade and offer a mix of Ladakhi, Indian and Continental cuisine served in a communal dining room. The lodge is part of a collaborative effort with the Snow Leopard Conservancy, and its presence helps preserve habitat for local wildlife including ibex, urial, bharal, wolf, Himalayan fox, bearded vultures, Himalayan griffon vultures and golden eagles, along with its namesake, the snow leopard. Our hosts are among the area's finest local naturalists and snow leopard trackers. 

Please Note: The lodge will be undergoing renovations, including upgrades to guest rooms, in the summer of 2020. We will update photos after renovations are complete.
