From 3rd-14th July 2014, His Holiness the Dalai Lama will offer the unique opportunity to receive the Kalachakra Teachings in Choglamsar (Ladakh). To celebrate this event, Mountain Tribal Vision is offering a two week stay in Dewachen Hotel (within easy reach of the teaching ground) followed by a trek to Zanskar . It is also possible to book exclusively for the Teachings or for the Zanskar Trek.

Accommodation and Transport at Dewachen Hotel

Situated an equidistant 5km from both Leh and Choglamsar on the tranquil banks of the Indus River amongst green fields of barley is the tranquil Dewachen Hotel, an ideal retreat for those wishing to contemplate the 35th Kalachakra Teaching in peaceful surroundings. Mountain Tribal Vision is offering exclusive packages to its customers for this auspicious occasion, including full or half board, transportation to and from Leh airport to Dewachen and to and from the teaching ground on the days of the Teaching. An afternoon programme of related talks, films and culture at Dewachen will also be on offer during the Teachings. Please note that since we anticipate high demand for accommodation during this period, bookings must be completed by 31st March 2014. Mountain Tribal Vision requires a 50% deposit by this date.


Breakfast will be included in the room price and a packed lunch will be available on request. A buffet dinner will be served every evening in both dining rooms. Please inform us at breakfast if you will be requiring an evening meal.


To combat Leh’s sporadioc power supply, Dewachen boasts its own generator and solar lamps for the bedrooms. Hot water is available on request between 6am-12noon. Solar heated water is available from taps and showers between 12 noon and 3pm when the sun is usually shining.

There is also limited WiFi and internet service throughout the day.

Hot and cold drinks, including speciality local teas are available from 9am-9pm in the Dining Room and Garden.
