The Norden Camp is an opportunity for the visitor to experience Tibetan culture and outdoors in style and comfort. It is situated 20 minutes out of Labrang, the famous Tibetan monastic town in the Tibetan Autonomous Kenlho Prefecture, Gansu Province, China.

The site, a winter grazing area for local nomads in a stunningly beautiful area that covers 11 hectares, borders a meandering river and is the home of hares and marmots, foxes, gazelles, many birds including pheasants.  The camp is covered in flowering bushes, trees, and a carpet of flowers in summer. From May, the flowering plants and bushes bloom in stages; pink, then yellow and multi colored flowers that continue to bloom into October.


Yidam Kyap is a Tibetan nomad who saw the world and returned with the insight and knowledge to share the beauty of his land and heritage. He and his wife Dechen are the visionaries behind Norden Camp. The success of their concept lies on their ability to strike a delicate balance between comfort and cultural and ecological responsibility. Norden is  a living example of conscious luxury combined with sustainability and respect for the environment.
