Camping at Tirthan Valley is an experience in itself. The valley is far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It’s a rich territory of flora and fauna and camping at such a place is no less than a frappe with choclate syrup and brownie 😉 On my visit to Tirthan with Stay on Skill, i got to stay at a campsite. Let me tell you exactly what happened. So the group was told that one night is going to be the caping night. I thought there would be Quechua twin or triple sharing camps. (honestly, i didn’t want that experience on that particular trip). Like after enjoying our luxury stay at Sunshine Himalayan Cottage & an authentic Himachali homestay experience at Tirthan Riverview Homestay, this Camping thing was bit rough and tough. But couldn’t say anything. Our vehicle stopped in middle of a road and i wondered where is the campsite ! We trekked down from the main road, and to my surprise, there was a BEAUTIFUL, BIG, Full of life kind of a campsite with amazing Swiss tents. The setup was so perfect, honestly it was far beyond i imagined.
