At Khampa Nomad Ecolodge, our main goal is to provide a space for people to exercise their interests and to learn and do new things, with like-minded people. We hope that guests will come with an openness to learning and doing: either bring your own playful and creative hobbies to share with us and other guests, or be willing to learn and try new interests here. We offer workshops in many kinds of skills that might interest you: making cheese, nomad crafts and skills, yogurt and butter making, cyanograph, painting, drawing, wood carving, jewelry-making, flute-playing, and creative photography. If you can play an instrument, please plan a time to play it while you are here so others can listen. If you are good at gardening, please tell us and plan a time to work together in the garden. If you enjoy photography, we are open to that, but only if you are NOT copying other people’s work. If cooking is your love, please plan a time to share that with the rest of us by leading a class.
We also believe that connection to nature give the best inspiration for art, and brings happiness. So we ask that guests join on some kind of nature experience; from an all-day hike or horse ride, to a short walk to look at birds, to a quiet observation and mediation near the lodge. We also offer stretching on the deck and welcome runners to join in our daily morning runs.
