"Nestled in the midst of 9 hills offers breathtaking views of the Ganges. The camping experience is great. Hospitable staff. Food is decent. Weather is great. Its a little far off and drive might be a bit tiring considering lot of stoppages in the road up here due to road construction. If you expect it to be along the river on a beach then you shall be disappointed. In fact its located at a steep height from the road and for guys from the plains it shall be a pretty steep climb of 50 odd steps with luggage. For the price it offers a lovely memory. "

13 June 2015
We were hoping to feel tired and worn out but surprisingly despite the tough trek it was nice and enjoyable and we were with high energy levels even after the trek. This was definitely a nice trekking experience. We had some great memories to take back home and share. I really loved the whole travel too as it was a road trip for us.

Had a great experiance. We did trekking, rafting, bonfire and the place, view was really nice.
Amazing experience. Has a great view of Ganges, surrounded by hills. The drive from Rishikesh isn't that great because of ongoing road construction plus reaching the campsite itself would be a small trek for some people. Great staff, good food. I traveled solo, met an amazing family there, so all in all it was a fun trip.

Very efficiently handled....booking efficiency was most pleasing.....staff was most polite and most importantly the navigator (harish) was super .....great memories
Booking Camp from this website was a great experience. The location is bit far from the Rishikesh bus stand but it is worth it. The scenes, food, rafting, and all other activities were just awesome. Also, the staff at the camp was very co-operative. At the end, it felt like all fun and no regrets.
