High up on a ridge overlooking a sea of mountains, where clouds catch on the peaks every now and then, lies this idyllic campsite. Camp Purple is a dreamer's paradise, named after the colour of the clouds at sunset. With the sleepy town of Mukteshwar nearby, meadows to lie in, fruit trees waiting to be plucked, and lush forest paths to explore, this provides a perfect mix of beauty and adventure. You can amp up the adrenaline here with a session of rappelling or rock-climbing, or you could slow it down on a light day hike, or go waterfall bathing. It's your paradise to explore as you choose.
Located in Mukteshwar, high in the Kumaon hills, this camp is an idyllic getaway. Unparalleled sunsets and sunrises and unhindered views of the Himalayas from the ridge make this a coveted camping destination. In the spring months, the orchards around the campsite blossom with gorgeous flowers, turning to luscious peaches and plums as the summer months come along. During winter, the morning mists lie low on the mountains, turning all shades from baby pink to blazing reds and purple.
You'll be staying in American safari tents, equipped with cots, mattresses, blankets/sleeping bags, and lamps.

In the evening, make sure you grab a front seat view for a spectacular display of the sun as it sets in the Himalayas.
