If u are looking out for offbeat experience with affordable price then this village camp is recommendable. The tents are decent enough but there is a scope to be more cleaner. We had also gone for some adventure activities near the campsite and in the evening camp staff arranged bonfire for us.

I have been visiting this surreal destination since 2005, almost once every six months with my family and friends and it never fails to amaze and enthral me with the stunning landscapes and warm hospitality such that is rare to experience even in five-star hotels. This is possibly the best mountain resort in the Himalayas and as an avid traveller, I can say that with great conviction.
