We were on a trip thru Himachal this Sep and reached the resort by 9pm. Often times after a full day on the road you tend to just want to reach your destination and crash. This was different and once we reached we were greeted very warmly and allocated our respective tents. The tents by them selves are great. The attached bath and toilets are an RCC structure ie tiled walls and floors with 24 hr running hot and cold water. Capt Ajay Sud who is a co-owner of the Banjara chain joined us for dinner and drinks. He is great company and we exchanged stories of our trip. He is usuually based out of Sangla from April until October. We called it a day by 11pm
Woke up late that morning and the site of the resort blew me away. It was dark when we had arrived the previous night and therefore very difficult to get you bearings. But this morning the sun was up and walking around the resort was truly rewarding. For one it Is dotted with apple trees which were in full bloom. Then the site is located next to a raging river so throughout the day you can hear it gushing past. The resort is open every year between May and Oct and then packed up for the winter. Chitkul which a 30 min drive from a resort is an excellent place for a trek. Must do if you come there with family and kids. The resort too is a great place for kids to unwind with a well stocked library, table tennis and badminton courts. I am coming back with family next year for sure.
