  • Trip introduction

    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.

    Destination

    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.

  • Day 1: Camping in Mukteshwar

    You can check in to the campsite in time to enjoy your lunch at this gorgeous campsite. After you settle into your tents, you'll have the whole day free to do as you please. Enjoy a day in the outdoors, go for a hike, or try your hand at rappelling and rock-climbing on the imposing overhanging cliffs nearby. In the evening, make sure you grab a front seat view for a spectacular display of the sun as it sets in the Himalayas. Huddle around a campfire in the evening, and then dig into a dinner that will have you licking your fingers. After that, it's lights out in this mountain camp. Overnight in tents.
