Himalayan Camp, Sarchu
"Sarchu (11500+ ftabove sea level) is kind of mid-way on Manali - Leh Route (220 kms from Manali and 255 kms from Leh) and therefore most suitable for a transit stay. Sarchu area is remote and camps are setup here during June-Sept period to serve transit travellers. Sarchu area is a plateau and is blessed with exceptional Himalayan Beauty."
The Himalayan Camp is located at Sarchu, 222 kms from Manali on the Leh highway. The camp is located on the main Sarchu camp grounds and is being operated from 2016 onwards every year from 10 June to 20 Sep.

We serve a choice of Indian/ Chinese/ Continental dishes (as per menu or preferred by group leader) and meals to groups are laid down in a buffet. Lunches are mostly packed and may consist of items as preferred by the guests. The dinning tent is served with our own kitchen managed by an experienced high altitude cook and attendants.
Electricity back up
Since, Sarchu does not have any electricity, our camp has own gen set which provides electrical power required. The gen set operates as soon as it gets dark in evening till the guests have their dinner & go to sleep in their cozy tents and again in mornings for departure.
