Camping

 

Camping is perhaps the best way of enjoying the wonders of nature given to Himachal and sharing the warmth of its people. You can carry your own gear along or opt for any one of the several organised camps such as the Boparais Camping Site at Barog, that are pitched in various parts of the State. These camps offer accommodation, catering and variety of activities like hiking, fishing, nature-tours and rafting. Most of these offer quality facilities and services.

Himachal Tourism has camps at Sarchu in Lahaul besides built accommodation, and tents are available at Sangla and Kalpa in Kinnaur and Kaza in Spiti part of Lahaul & Spiti district.

The Youth Hostel association of India, runs camps at Dalhousie (Chamba) and at Kullu-Manali. Camps run by the private sector are at Barog in Solan district, Baspa (Sangla) Valley and Kalpa in Kinnaur, at Tabo in Spiti, at Al Hilal (Taragarh) and Dharamsala in Kangra, at Shoja near Kullu and Mashobra and Baldian near Shimla. Adventure camps are likely to be available soon in the Pabbar valley in the Jubbal - Hatkoti - Rohru area in Shimla district.
