  • Q. What is the difference between a Beach Camp and a Jungle Camps?

    Beach camp is near a water body while jungle camp is within the forest surrounded by trees from all sides. Due to its lower altitude, the temperature around beach camps is moderate.

     

    You can enjoy sunny beaches and swim in the cold water of the river while in the jungle, you will be surrounded by icy cold peaks and flamboyant green cover. Life is easier, more fun filled near the beach while it’s difficult but thrilling in the jungle.

  • Q. Will we get mobile network at the campsite?

    Mobile network of different private companies isn’t always available. But BSNL provides coverage in most areas and is pretty consistent.

  • Q. Is electricity available in tents everytime?

    Depends on the type of tent. It’s mostly available in riverside/beach camps but it isn’t always available in remote areas of the jungle.

  • Q. Can we have a DJ and Loud music in the camp?

    No, playing loud music is strictly prohibited. You are expected to enjoy the calm and serene environment of the place, listening to the sound of birds, observing the sound of gushing water, and by letting yourself indulge in the music of nature you'll gradually find peace here.
