Camping in Himachal Pradesh

Camping in Himachal Pradesh will feel like you’ve been transported to an alternate universe. With the breathtaking views, clean and refreshing air to breathe in, the Himachal region is a camper’s paradise. There are tiny hamlets near Shimla, Manali, and Dharamsala that are some of the popular camping destinations in Himachal. If you’re looking for a soothing escape from civilization, camping in Himachal is your best bet.

Camping in Himachal Pradesh: Camping in Shimla

The capital city of Himachal is a mystical land, ideal for a summer camping vacation. If you’re looking to escape the heat during the summers, you should go camping in Shimla. Camping sites here are set amidst tranquil and scenic forests of pine and cedar at 7200 feet above sea level.

Camping in Himachal Pradesh: Camping in Manali

Aside from camping in Shimla, Manali camping also provides a perfect escape to step away from the heat. A paradise for many couples on their honeymoon, Manali attracts many tourists.

Manali camping offers equally splendid scenic views to absorb, but is also a haven for adventure lovers. You can head to Beas River to enjoy water sports. If you want to soar high into the skies, spend a night at the Solang Valley trying out paragliding or skydiving. Look for campsites in Kullu if you can’t find anything you like in Manali. Kullu has some wonderful nature campsites that offer rafting and camping packages.

Camping in Himachal Pradesh: Camping in Dharamsala

Dharamsala is a small and peaceful town, which lies in the Kangra Valley, at an altitude of 4870 feet. Due to the elevation, it doesn’t make much of a difference camping here in the winters or the summers. This is quickly becoming one of the more popular attractions for camping in Himachal Pradesh.

Camping in Himachal Pradesh: Trek and camp combos

If you’re looking for a real escape from people and civilization, try a trek in Himachal. You’ll spend the day walking through pine-scented forests, over sweet grass meadows, past rivers and streams, and up into the upper reaches of Himachal. Every night you’ll camp at new locations, and you’ll spend evenings around bonfires, with the mountains around you and the stars above.

Best season for camping in Himachal Pradesh

Camping in Himachal Pradesh is a serene and wonderful getaway. With the summer months coming up, be sure to head on over there from April onwards, before the monsoons start. Winters from September onwards get a little cold to try camping in Himachal Pradesh. For those slightly more adventurous, you can hike up to some of the Himachal trekking camps as well.
