A short hike from the campsite can also take you to the local Syahi Devi temple, a great way to spend the afternoon. At an additional cost, you can also explore the traditional Kumaoni culture with a local guide on heritage walks in Ranikhet and Almora.

    Destination

    Perched on terraced mountain slopes, your campsite in the hills of Uttarakhand is surrounded by pretty forests of thick oak trunks and towering, thin pine trees. These forests are home to a number of exotic, native and migratory birds, turning the campsite into a bird lover's paradise. With idyllic scenery all around the campsite, you can simply grab a hot cup of tea and spend hours with blissful views of the mountains and the old world charm of villages.

    At the campsite, you'll spend the night in large Swiss tents with a personal sit-out area and attached bathroom with hot water supply. Inside the tent, you'll have clean linen, soft beds, small table with chairs along with racks for your luggage. You'll enjoy delicious meals that offer a mix of Indian and continental cuisine, cooked with locally-sourced ingredients for a dash of the traditional Kumaoni taste.
