Camping Guidelines

We believe in responsible tourism. While we enjoy introducing people to experiences in nature, we also encourage everyone to follow eco-friendly practices when undertaking any activities run by us.

Camping FAQs

What should we pack for camping in Tirthan Valley?

Pack light. Bring essentials such as sunhats, sunscreen, and sunglasses as well as any medicines you need. Our staff will carry a First Aid kit. For clothes, layers are recommended and a jacket for rain/wind. You may start the day with a bright sun and comfortable temperature and end with hail, wind, and cold weather.

Is camping in Tirthan Valley pet-friendly?

You can bring your pet, but it can’t sleep with you in the tent. Most of our tents have a porch where a pet can sleep. Make sure you bring something for your pet to sleep on. You will also need to keep your pet on a leash and can’t let it run in the surroundings.

Do the Tirthan valley campsites include electricity, wash tents, etc.?

We don’t have electricity at the campsites, but, on request, we can provide portable solar panels for charging your smartphone. You usually don’t take a bath while camping. Again, on request, we can arrange a wash tent

Are the camping packages (without treks/hikes) for one night only?

You need permission only if you camp in a protected area, that is, inside the boundaries of the GHNP. The campsites we have listed here are outside GHNP.

Do we need permission for camping?

Yes, the camping package is for 1N/2D with activities. But we can plan it for longer based on your requirements.

Is the cost per tent for camping on private land included in the camping cost?

We may need to camp on private land only if required. The fee is not included in the camping cost.

Do you offer luxury camping in Tirthan Valley and what does it include?

We do glamping in Tirthan Valley but it is still a camping experience. We enhance your comfort to the maximum with quality equipment, food, and staff.

Is camping available throughout the year?

Camping is an adventure. The weather in the mountains is difficult to predict. Risk of injuries is always higher in the wild as compared to staying at home. However, the wildlife does not pose a risk.

Is camping in the wilderness safe in terms of weather and physical safety?

Yes, but it is better to do it during the good season, of course. We recommend summer, autumn, and winter when the snowfall is not too heavy.
