Our Campsite at Mukteshwar is located on the ridge, in a small village called Sargakhet with spectacular views of the Kumaon valley all around, amidst apple, mulberry, and other fruit trees. At 7290 Ft, Mukteshwar is one of the highest ridges in the middle Himalayas. It is one of the best rock climbing-rappelling sites in Kumaon and offers great opportunities for trekking through the beautiful countryside and witnessing a fast disappearing way of life.
Camp Purpose: A perfect blend of a camp, relaxing holiday, rejuvenating with nature interspersed with adventure sports and a slice of jungle stay. This program is designed to witness a fresh perspective of the village life, experience life in the hills of the north and have fun with friends over a campfire and kumaoni culture! This camp will engage the kids physically, mentally and socially thus giving them the opportunity to balance their energies and explore their love for new places, habitat, and people!
