Conscious Travel in Tibet
"[Norden] opened the retreat as a source of income for former nomads, who arrange horseback rides through the wildflower-covered landscape and visits with Buddhist monks at a nearby monastery"
"The camp practices ecological and cultural responsibility, and activities vary from stargazing and hiking to visiting the Labrang Monastery and shopping at the local Norlha textile workshop."
"The mountains of the Gannan Tibetan autonomous prefecture offer succour of a unique sort: pristine air, rare silence and a sense of endless space for contemplation"
"This makes Norden Camp the first true ‘glamping’ experience in Tibet"
"Stay the night at the Norden Camp under the infinite sky, surrounded by a rugged landscape painted in hues of powder blue and lush green"
"Further afield on the Tibetan Plateau where the traditional yak hair tents at Norden Camp get considerably upgraded with yak wool rugs and bedcovers by sister brand Norlha"
"The camp represents a new frontier in sustainable tourism"
"The site is a winter grazing area for local nomads, and is in fact run and staffed by nomads. The wildlife you will encounter includes hares, marmots, foxes, gazelles and countless birds"
