LCHANG NANG RETREAT
Lchang Nang is a destination created for travellers in search of peace and tranquility. Combining comfort and simplicity, it pays homage to its local heritage via its links to the local community and the local culture. Our library, still at a budding stage, offers a unique collection of archives on the local fauna, wildlife, Buddhist culture and Silk Route history.
Lchang Nang aims to play a role in reducing Ladakh’s carbon footprint. The retreat is fully solar powered and plastic containers are kept to a minimum. In the coming years we plan to grow and source most of our operational needs locally. Lchang Nang also maintains a vision for a sustainable future through eco-conscious initiatives. For example, the property is primarily powered through solar energy, which is plentiful in sunny Ladakh. We also offer our guests filtered glacial snowmelt for both drinking and bathing purposes, reducing our reliance on single use plastics.
THE HOUSE OF TREES
Lchang Nang is owned by an illustrious Ladakhi family, the Kalons, who have lived in Teggar village for countless generations. Motivated by the concept of sustainable tourism, the eldest son Rigzin Kalon launched an Eco Resort Initiative called Lchang Nang, “The House of Trees.”
The idea behind Lchang Nang is based on the concept of “conscious luxury” with profound respect for the past and a thoughtful care for the future. The deep connect with Ladakhi culture can be seen throughout the architecture, techniques for maintaining the grounds, as well as the cuisine. Lchang Nang also has its own range of pure organic products – Amaley’s™, sourced directly from family orchards and produced using age old techniques and heirloom wisdom.
