Norden Camp invites travelers to experience genuine nomadic living with an added dose of modern style.
Located outside the monastic village of Labrang at an altitude of 10,000 feet, Norden Camp introduces its guests to the nomadic way of life. This unique outpost was founded in a destination where itinerant herders graze their animals in the winter and fields are filled with flowers throughout the summer. Facilities are simple, with a dining area, bar, fire pit and sauna, and accommodations include four traditional yak hair tents along with eight log cabins. Both types are portable; all have wooden floors and are tastefully furnished with local antiques and wood furnaces. The camp practices ecological and cultural responsibility, and activities vary from star gazing and hiking to visiting the Labrang Monastery and shopping at the local Norlha textile workshop.
