Zinc Journey’ Begins to Travel Across Asia


 CINNOVATION | CG and Zinc | InVision Hospitality proudly announces the formal opening of Zinc Journey Arro Khampa. The Tibetan style boutique hotel is nestled along the winding rivers and stone lanes of Old Town in Shangri La, China.  Zinc Journey Arro Khampa is the perfect place to revive a weary spirit and take welcome refuge from the long, winding road.

Blending with nature and preserving the rich, indigenous culture and lifestyle of Shangri La, the 17 room Zinc Journey Arro Khampa takes in the stunning views of Sakya Muni Temple, Dokhar Dzong and both Daguishan and Ratopo mountain ranges.  Come experience a riveting personal exploration along one of the ancient world’s most integral trade routes; a route that locals believed, “passed just under the noses of the gods, while being kissed by the great snow mountains”.

The Himalayas have long held secrets, and we believe the Tea Horse Road has many stories to tell.  Like many journeys that began along this ancient trail, Zinc Journey explorations will travel throughout Yunnan Province, including LiJiang, Dali & Tibet. Modern day journeymen and travelers who seek the wisdom of history can walk the well-worn paths that adventurous traders laid centuries ago.

Zinc Journey Arro Khampa is the first in a series of worldwide destinations. Zinc Journey experiences are being created in various destinations that highlight historically unique locales and trails in countries across Asia.  Along with two existing properties in Negombo and Sigiriya, Sri Lanka, 7 additional properties are scheduled for opening in 2014-2015 including sites in Nepal, China and Bhutan. Zinc Journey is a concept that creates a unique circuit of smaller, ethnic hotels that encompass local art, culture & cuisine into each guest’s experience. This is a collection of special properties tailor made for travelers looking for personal experiences and journeys off the beaten path.
