The phrase Arro Khampa, Come on in, friends, is a Tibetan greeting that was used by the Netsangs – innkeepers – to pay homage to weary mule-caravan traders along the ancient Tea Horse Road. Arro Khampa is a warm-hearted welcome providing instant sanctuary to the travelers that made it along the perilous 1800km journey to Lhasa, then on to Nepal and India.
Today, Dakpa Kelden, a Tibetan raised in a Lamasery in India, invites you with the Spirit of “Arro Khampa” to experience his boutique hotels located along the ancient Tibetan caravan trails. This luxury hotel group, comprising Arro Khampa Shangri-La (2010), Arro Khampa Lijiang (2013) and Arro Khampa Lhasa (2020), welcomes visitors from the world over.
Inspired by the sacred teachings and exquisite arts of Tibet and India, Arro Khampa is famed for its harmonious fusion of indigenous arts and authentic architectural style with modern hospitality amenities. This achievement is found in both the interior and exterior design created by award-winning local designer Li Zhong.
From elegant Shangri-La (ancient Gyalthang) to sleepless Lijiang (ancient Sadham) to blissful Lhasa, an authentic Tibetan experience like no other is brought to you by Arro Khampa.
Arro Khampa – a sanctuary for your heart and mind.
