Banjara Camps is located very close to where the story of Apple in Himachal Pradesh began. All around in the valley you can see apple trees and some other fruit trees. Staff is friendly and guides you well for options to explore the area. Food is especially made for the guest and is hence fresh and made to order. You... More

Have been to almost all banjara properties. But this is the one I liked most . Thanedar has plenty of fruit orchards, almost every house has its own apple trees. And the time when I visited this place all the trees were loaded with fruits & that was wonderful ! The best part of this property is that the owner... More

The resort is amidst an apple and pear orchard. One can literally take one's hand out of the room's window and pluck an apple( Well you are not allowed to pluck the fruits. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Their log cabins are the best to stay. The food is great and one can enjoy the meal sitting in the... More

Banjara resort in Thanedar is almost out of this world - one of the best places one can get to among hill stations in India. It is far from the madding crowd (Shimla, Kufri, Chail, etc etc), with nature all around you. You can go for beautiful walks amidst orchards; or just loiter around on the quite narrow roads. Banjara... More

Located at about 10000 ft above MSL, two hours drive from Shimal, this beautiful destination is the best for a relaxed holiday. You can get with nature, take a walk around the small village, appreciate the fresh cherries, apples, rose (at least 35 different types in the property) and other beauties that the nature offers. You can go to Hatu... More

Banjara takes special care to give you the comfort of home. Very leisurely and nicely done rooms, the resort is in the Apple County of Thanedar. Large rooms, amply furnished, with a wide array of menu items, the quality of food is also good. Beware of night bugs though - close the doors and windows in the night

Very nice location about 15 kms from Narkanda. Very well maintained rooms with neat bathrooms. Furnishings are matching. Food is home cooked and tasty. Definitely worth staying if you don't mind 3k/pax

We spent 2 nights at Banjara Camps in Thanedar in May 2015. The sometimes nauseating 6+ hour drive up the windy roads from Thirtan Valley to Thanedar was arduous and this was (relatively) the priciest accommodation on our Himachal trip. However, once we arrived at Banjara, it was all worth it. This well run hotel, perched atop the hills of... More

Thanedar is famous for its apples as apples were bought to world famous Kinnaur from Thanedar’s experiments in planting apples. The room was beautiful and cozy with big glass windows for a beautiful view of the green valley and snow caped mountains from the room. The food was too good with a lot of it being organic in sourcing. I... More
