Camp Himachal
Reviewed 1 July 2015

I will try to keep it as brief as I can (quite tough.. so please bear with me for a long read!)

We arrived Dalhousie during end phase of summer vacations in June, and it jolted me and my wife to see the rush of tourists flocking to get some space somehow in any hotel, mindlessly following the crowded route of touristic spots which were already overflowing with 'selfie-lovers' :)

We are quite the opposite as travelers. We love serene views of preferably unexplored places, and a flavor of local culture. This seemed impossible considering we were stuck in Dalhousie rush... and it was a moment of pure luck that I agreed to take this trek and camping, suggested by our hotel manager. As I have done trekking before, I was not having high expectations to be honest. But the experience we carried back home was a pure delight. Here's why:

1. The location: just beautiful serene views of Himalayas for the adventure lovers, giving you a taste of what nature is meant to be, before it gets spoiled by tourism.

2. The tents: spacious, well maintained, and offering all the basic amenities one would ask for. No trouble at all in our stay of 2 nights there. In fact, the quality of washrooms comes at par with a good hotel.

3. The owners: We met 3 friends who are overseeing this site -- Rajat, Raju, and Adam -- and we have distinct memoirs of each one of them. While conversing at the bonfire first night, I loved their eagerness to make it big while maintaining its eco-friendliness (imagine them carrying all the disposables back 40kms to Dalhousie in their car, just to keep this site clean). We were served very well by them.

4. The staff: Courteous, friendly, and very hospitable. Excellent cook as well. The rural kids of nearby houses added to the local charm for us.

All in all, if you are okay trying something new, and willing to take a walk with nature and its surprises, this experience is highly recommended. We urge you to not recommend this to anyone who is just looking to booze around with loud music or irresponsible acts.. we owe at least this much to mother nature I believe.

A really really beautiful and a exciting place to stay.

The staff is so courteous that a 5 star would need training from them.

The place is picture perfect. The setup that these guys have put up is perfect. The idea is perfect . Living in the lap of nature far away from all tensions of life.

I would say a must stay place for once in a lifetime.

Kudos to the team
