The camps have 2 bedded tents which can include an extra bedding without any additional cost. We take care of budget campers.
How to reach?
Just 8 kms from Laxman Jhula this campsite does’t seem exciting to reach, but it is. You will take a personal or sharing cab to Mohanchati, it will drop you on the main road, then you have to walk 10 mins in the wilderness crossing a wood bridge over a river to reach the campsite.
