4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Having visited in April 2011, we visited BRC again in April of 2013 (with 2 more couple friends), and found out that nothing had changed. Same location, same views, but hospitality had further improved...

The camp manager arranged for a fishing jaunt also, as well as hosted us well, by attending adequately to our small requests as well. Felt quite at home, an would visit again there...

BRC could think of arranging stays @ Chhitkul as well, for the discerning...

Stayed here in June 13 (before the rains). Originally this was our second choice in Sangla. But right from the moment we arrived, we realized that it couldn't have been better. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Throughout our stay, they made sure that all our needs were taken care off. We stayed in a tent right next to the river. The tent provides all that you need to stay comfortably (it does not provide a TV though which was the only complaint my wife had). The location is excellent, the tents and rooms are set in an apple orchard which made the entire setting unforgettable. We could walk out to the river bank and enjoy the evenings. Food quality is excellent. For kids, they have an activity room full of board games (including carrom) which keeps them occupied.
Overall, just for the hospitality, I would rate this facility at the very top.

I stayed here last week.the place is beautiful but needs proper management.initailly I took a tent near the river but changed it cuz of the noise of the river.they dont have much activities which otherwise they claim when u book.The approach is bad once u park the car.u have have to walk bout 200 mts which otherwise is acceptable only if there is a proper path.The water in the taps was a bit muddy.
overall not a bad place to stay but would expect more for the money I spent.

you dont know what lies ahead as your car is parked at quite a distance away, outside the village houses, moving through narrow lanes, muddy and stony pavements,you reach a tent just along the river Baspa, they offer you a choice for tents ,we are in a dilemma but immediately choose the tents closest to the river.You can watch for hours together the turbulent, roaring and the mighty Baspa. The sound the roaring waves make is no noise. With amazing facilities in the tents, the activity tent had a lot to offer, awesome food, apple trees all around, the machaan tea with pakodas, the Chitkul trip, baikunth and sangla would be forever etched in the memory.

Room Tip: you can chose tents closer to the activity or dining tent OR closer to the river depending upon your...

An amazing destination. Baikunth adventure camps made it more happening with a 10.5 km trek to Sangla Kanda. Camping there was the higlight of our trip. Baikunth was able to make our entire trekking/ camping experience the most memorable one. We had kids from 31/2 yrs to a0 year old and everyone was very well taken care of. The tents were very comfortable and the food was like as if eating at home.What else could u ask for. Good JOB Baikunth !!

Baikunth Adventure Camp, Sangla is yet another great initiative of the Baikunth group. Located at 9,000 feet, it is THE place for an adventure. Our drive to Sangla was a long but we forgot it all when we entered the resort. The staff there is very warm, friendly and hospitable. They always served with a smile.The camp is located right next to the river Baspa. We enjoyed having our tea at its banks. The tents are comfortable with lovely beds and a well- maintained washroom. The food was very homely and we all enjoyed sitting around a bonfire and eating it. There are enough activities for the kids to enjoy, too. There's a whole tent dedicated to kids activities where there are games available in plenty such as carrom, Chess, Scotland Yard and Monopoly. Outdoor games like badminton and basketball were there, too. Apart from this, they also organised a 5 and a half hour trek. We were accompanied by the camp staff and a proffessional guide. The staff made us very comfortable. In these 5 and a half hours, we climbed 2,500 feet and camped at a place which was at the same level as Leh! The staff cooked food and served tea which we had around a bonfire.The scenery was EXTREMELY BREATHTAKING! We camped beside a lake and it was quite cold. We pitched our tents and laid our sleeping bags for we were to stay for the night. We slept and woke up early next morning and left for going back to the camp. There were snow- capped mountains everywhere. We found many new trees and plants and 2 wild hares also! We reached the base right on time for bonfire where we discussed about our trek.
We were to leave after 1 day. But we enjoyed while we were there. The day to leave had arrived and it was hard to bid farewell to the lovely tents, that tiny brook that passed through the camp, the bonfire area and of course, the friendly staff! The director, Mr Vikrum Jolly, an adventurer himself has a lot of options to offer to keen trekkers. He encourages his guests to rough it out by indulging in nature.
To sum it up, the place grows on you by the day and I'll definitely be back!

We were looking for a comfortable stay but in the outdoors as an experience for kids. Someone recommended Sangla - Kalpa trip and I was surprised to find Baikunth's resort in Sangla. For us, Baikunth scored over nearby Banjara Camps as we had a good experience at their resort in Kasuli few years ago. After a tiring journey of two days from Delhi we reached the quiet little Sangla in the evening. It was a bit dampening initially to find that the car couldn't go to the resort. But porters from the resort were good to carry the stuff. As we walked past through a small village, fields and an orchid, we knew we were in for a treat for next four days.

The camp is set right next to fast flowing Baspa river amidst an orchid. Staying at the camp was one of the most amazing experience we ve had in the Himalayas as we were surrounded with snow clad peaks in middle of June. The tents were pretty comfortable with running hot water in the toilets, although few insects do crawl in the toilet but what do you expect in a tent anyway :) Food was simple but good, no tandoori & mughlai stuff and it was a good break.

Plenty of play area in the resort and they even have an activity tent, where there are few board games. Tents do not have TV and thats another respite. There was a bonefire every night but quality of snacks could be improved.

However highlight of our trip was a road trip to Chitkul and an afternoon at the bank of the river. They prepared lunch for us in well packed tiffins and we had an awesome trip to Chitkul.

All in all, had one of the most memorable breaks in the Himalayas.

Room Tip: When we reached there in our excitement, we took the tent nearest to the river. But it gets very noi...
