Camps at Sarchu

There's nothing more calming and rejuvenating than a camping holiday in the Indian Western Himalayas. Glistening streams, gurgling brooks, shaded glens amidst tall forests of pine, fir and Deodar and lush green sprawling meadows dotted with a profusion of wild flowers below towering snow clad peaks - all make for a grand memorable camping holiday in the hills. And Snowbird Adventures believe in giving you the very best of camping experiences.

Around the Kullu valley at the northern end stands the picturesque hill resort of Manali where we are based. The surrounding hills abound with excellent camping sites affording fabulous views of the Pir Panjal ranges layered with radiant snow attaining, as the sun traverses the skies, all the tints possible on a landscape painter's palette. We offer a choice of some of the most breathtaking camping sites throughout the year save for the months of July and August and of course the winter months of December through March.

During the months from June through September we offer splendid campsites in the Lahaul valley off the Manali-Leh highway which falls in the rain shadow resulting in meagre rainfall if at all. The landscape represents the hi-altitude cold deserts of the Himalayas with astonishing rock and hill formations sculpted by the strong winds that blow in the region.

Write to us about the time of the year you would like to camp and let us know your preferences - alpine or hi-altitude desert and we'll make sure you'll have one of the best outdoor experiences in your life.

April through June: Snowbird arranges camping in the thickly forested hillsides around Manali in serene glades and meadows.
