experience Tibetan culture and outdoors in style, comfort and authenticity
Norden is a living example of conscious luxury combined with sustainability and respect for the environment.
We are proud to announce our collaboration with Norden Camp, a nomadic camp situated 20 minutes out of Labrang, the famous Tibetan monastic town in the Tibetan Autonomous Kenlho Prefecture, Gansu Province, China.
Staffed and run by nomads, Norden Camp uses elements of the nomad’s way of life adding to the essentials that make visitors feel comfortable and welcome without compromising the culture or the environment.
Centered around the camp, this authentic experience includes tasting the local food, relaxing in the comfortable wooden cabins or yak tents, walking, hiking and exploring the beautiful ecosystem, culture and way of life of the Tibetan Plateau.
The camp comprises seven fully appointed log cabins, four yak hair tents, three traditionally furnished reception tents, dining area and bonfire areas and a sauna. All accommodations, including tents, have wooden floors and comfortable, quality bedding. They are tastefully furnished with Norlha accessories and vernacular traditional style furniture and local antiques. The log cabins and tents are all heated with wood furnaces.
Norden Cuisine is based on the local pastoral lifestyle and the food derived from it, developing an innovative, culturally conscious cuisine rooted in tradition. It is suitable for both meat lovers and vegetarians.
The success of his concept lies on his and his team’s ability to strike a delicate balance between comfort and cultural and ecological responsibility.
