If a patch of forest by a gurgling stream, flanked by snow capped mountains and the mighty Baspa a short trek away are your idea of a vacation, this is one camp not to be missed out.

The approach roads are bad, the worst 30 kms in a 300 kms radius. The hydro-electrical projects in the area have added to the government's obvious apathy to nature conservation or development. One has to be determined to travel these miles or know what lies at the other end.

The scene changes the moment you approach the Sangla Village. The dust settles down and the greenery simply leaps out at you from all sides. "Igloo" is the first of the 4-5 camps in the area, ideally located in a clearing with the "Kinnar Kailash" towering over it on the left and the sprawling Baspa Valley on the right. Most other camps are located lower down the valley, nearer to the river-bed, and therefore miss out on the glory of the the snow-capped mountains.

Finding a fault with the camp would be a tough call. Spacious and well-furnished cottage tents with attached toilette, helpful staff, excellent kitchen and a most courteous host in the form of Debashish Dey. Just the place to do your thing : read, write, listen, draw, paint or just plain laze. For the activity freak, they will organize the usual set : nature walks, treks, rock climbing, river-crossing, camping and excursions etc.

Like I said, as good a RETREAT as can be

Room Tip: Nos. 1 & 2 are the quietest as they are the farthest from the camp's centre

When my children decided on a camping experience - we were a bit skeptical as camping for us meant inconvenience. We were scared of dirty linens, outdoor toilets, insects, improper food but staying in this camping resort not only redefined our perception but also provided a peaceful and rejuvenating experience. An ideal location surrounded by peaks with a safe view of the river at a distance made us long to stay further. Evening was fun with camp fire and bar-b-que and dim lights all across the place. The boys went out of their way to make us happy, even guiding us to the river on day trips. Ask for river crossing, rappelling and treks if you are the adventurous type. Highly recommended place.

Room Tip: Ask for adventure trek to less traveled locations at Rakcham

If you love nature then you will love this nature camp. This is located quite a distance away from the banks of river Baspa, in the Sangla village. They have 12 Swiss-made fully furnished tents with attached bath and toilet. You get hot water round the clock. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. They organize events like river crossing and rappelling for an additional charge. A ride (or walk) to Chitkul is highly recommended. They best part of this camp is the service. I doubt if you can get better service than this anywhere along river Baspa.

Room Tip: Book in advance and try to get a deal.

We landed at Sangla late in the evening around 8 PM and after crossing the Sangla village we figured that going further on that road at night was not advisable. Fortunately, Igloo was the last place in Sangla village and right on the road to Chitkul.

We booked a tent for one night. It was nice, clean and hygienic. The toilet was freshly painted so we had to be careful not to touch the walls etc. but it was good. The tent itself was pretty basic but the bed was comfortable.

We had dinner in another tent where they had a TV running. Dinner was also pretty basic but anything at that hour and place seemed reasonable. In the morning, the view from the camp is very nice. We had breakfast in open air as it was a clear sky.

In all, a nice place to crash for the night. You must see their wood fired water heaters!

The first thing that strikes you about this place is that - any side you look, all around you - the Mountains are visible in all their glory. The Camp itself is very well kept. It's clean, green and they take special care of the environment - they even grow some of their own vegetables! the tents are confortable - even luxurious given that they are in such a remote location (windows, attached toilet, carpets, beds and even deck chairs!). The owner keeps a great kitchen - The food is very tasty and versatile - from homely meals to barbecues. Its right next to an apple orchard and you can even go picking when its season (I didn't get to :( next time!). They have experienced guides for treks and hikes as well - but I just spent the whole week chilling next to the apple trees under the hills with the river breeze on my face with a chai. The staff takes care of you and are very friendly. Overall, the most relaxing week I ever had!

Room Tip: The tents facing the orchards are nicest - you can sit on the apple tree shade and chill all afterno...

We stayed here this June. An awesome place with homely food and smiling staff. We paid around 3500 per night for a tent for two people with breakfast and dinner. Activities organized by them was river crossing, river camping, rappelling and trek to the Sangla Kanda. Am over all great experience - will visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for Bike hire if you are a biker !
