“Worth the distance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Had an overall great experience recently. Sangla is beautiful n the hospitality of this campsite makes it perfect to spend precious time with family.
The location is great... with snow capped mountains right in front across the river. One has to go slightly down to be at the riverside. Had there been a direct view of the river from the tents it would be a feather in their cap.
The road to approach the camp has a very sharp descent and is kachcha so it may be a challenge for some drivers especially if its raining.
Tents are basic with clean beds n bathroom. Hot water is provided by buckets.
Food is good.
Tulsi is a great server, always smiling and ever present. We asked for packed breakfast at 6.00 in the morning and there it was - with tea n hotwater to freshen up. Great job!
Have only one suggestion - the beds should have a headboard, in its absence head feels cold on a chilly night n the pillow keeps falling off.

We were at Kinner camps on 17th April. Mr. Dilip was kind enough to get his car and get us down to the camp area which would have been difficult with a bigger car. Camp is located at a very quiet and peaceful place down in the Valley. We were really surprised by the cleanliness inside the tents. Staff were very helpful and they made us stay comfortable with their excellent service. We went trekking to Batseri village by crossing the Baspa river outside the camp. Was an excellent experience for us. They had arranged for an bonfire for us in the evening as it was really cold. Next day they got us hot water in buckets since the pipes do not carry hot water. Staff took care of all our basic needs so that we were not put into any trouble. Our son enjoyed staying in the tent which was a new experience for all of us. Surprising that even with the extreme cold outside, it was really warm inside. Overall it is a good place to stay for a couple of days and chill out amidst peaceful surroundings.

We visited Kinner at April End and it was snowing when we reached. The staff made sure that we were comfortable in that weather.
From the camp you can go for a small trek to the glacier point. They will arrange a guide for you.
Chitkul is a one hour drive from there.
Pros:
- Good food.
- Nice location.
- Excellent staff. Its easy to find a reason to complain at such a location but the staff will try their best to satisfy your needs.

Cons:
- No good heating solution in rooms.
- The road connecting the main road and the camp is in a really bad shape. The turns are so sharp that you cannot do in one go. You have to reverse your car once and add to that mud/slush. Going down might be easy, but coming up may be challenging if its wet.
- Try to avoid Sangla if its going to rain/snow. The route from Karcham to Sangla is a landslide prone area, and its a nightmare if you're driving your own car.

Room Tip: Any tent is fine. They are all same.

It was a memorable stay for me, as I was staying in tent for the first time. Tents were neat and clean. It was very cold as we visited in month of April, there were enough quilts to beat the cold.
View was breathtaking from the tents.
We can go for a walk to Baspa river which is just 200 meters away from the tents.
Chitkul is also at 1 hour distance from Sangla, which is beautiful.
Food served is good, considering stay in tents.
Mr Dilipji is very friendly, and all the staff will fulfill your needs. They also setup bonfire.
Overall, did not find anything negative.

Room Tip: You can book any tent, no tip as such.

We visited Kinner Camp at the start of April and it was just a begining of the season.
Road to camp was damaged but Mr Dilip Negi and his men brought up the same in just 2 days

Tents were neat and clean.
Food quality is good with variation in buffet system each day.

Being end of snow season, view of mountains from camp was awesome.
Mr. Negi arranged guide for walkable trek to glaciors.

They provide you with enough quilts to beat cold.

Only cons I found is lack of heater in the tents and for room service you have to call person all the way to restaurant.(But it is understood that being a tent it is not possible to put heater and intercom).

I liked the idea of providing packed lunch for trek.
All in all, good 5 star experience of stay close to nature.

My sincerest thanks to Dilip Negi for making it a place, better and better with each passing year. Having visited there thrice in three consecutive years, this year on May 29th and 30th, for 02 nights' stay while on way to Spiti, It was pleasing to see the things they have improved upon. While approaching the campsite, there was no problem negotiating the first curve (which they have really worked hard to improve upon). Best campsite food that can ever be available. Dilip with his staffers would work overtime, as always, to make sure that guests are properly accommodated and their meals are for sure, a wonderful experience. What makes this place even more exclusive is the fact that in order to maintain the camping infrastructure, one has to constantly keep on working, and here they know what needs to be done and how. Best place for whatever, one looks for in a campsite.

We stayed at the property recently and had a great experience. 5 stars for the service and food. Only difficulty we had was due to the restricted road access to the camp.

Full marks to Mr. Dileep Negi and team for making us stay comfortable and memorable. Perfect property once the road to the camp is restored.

Room Tip: make sure road to Sangla is open and you can drive up to the property.
