Apple Orchard Farm and Camping
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Apple orchard farm is a gem of a place to stay,surrounded by beutiful vistas arround.The owner goes out of the way to make you feel extremly comfortable.Food was lip smacking good and considering all of this at the alltitude they are at credit must be give to Mr Negi.

I loved this camp and will be back soon.

Room Tip: All tents are great, with same views

I was in this place for a night in June this year. The place was full all tents were occupied and thats when te problem starts. Though the owner Mr.Negi is a great person and takes care of his guests personally I feel the place is still not ready to take in so many people. Some areas of improvement:
1. Food - obviously this is the most important part and we found several gaps here both in quality and quantity. During the rush period one had to wait for food as one item was served tge other got over.
2. Infra - the tents are well maintained tge washrooms are ckean and fresh but there should be an endeavour to bring in some excitement, games etc for kids.

In total the place needs to be more professional. Whike saying all this I admire Mr.Negi and his willingness to learn and help every customer. While I was here my daughter fell sick, Mr.Negi arranged for medecines and prepared special food on demand.
I hope things wil get better and the apple orchard bloom more.

The Apple orchard Camps as the name suggests --- is a place where tents are set up in an Apple Orchard. This unique setting itself was great for city slickers like us and one can imagine the excitement of the kids too!! The tents although basic are spacious with amenities like a toilet and hot water heater ensuite. There is a common dining tent for the meals, where inspite of the altitude and temperature constraints, hot meals are laid out. The staff here are humble and again always ready to b of service in their constant endeavour to make the guest's stay as memorable as possible.

If you want to experience the garden of 'Selfish Giant', come to Sangla valley during 1st week of May, as we two families did. But if you want to STAY comfortably then choose AOFC, Sangla.

The tents are specious, with excellent quality warmers (you will need all 6 of them provided in the tent as temp goes down to freezing if its cloudy or raining). The blankets, quilts & linens are spotless and off great quality. The toilet is clean & workable enough in a tent.

The food, though limited in variety (expected in such remote location) is hot, freshly prepared and tasty. Moreover, there is continuous supply of fresh apple juice.

We had faced rain & cloudy atmosphere in our day of arrival and our requests for 'n' rounds of tea/coffee were smilingly accepted. Don't miss the evening pakodas as well.

During our visit, temperature was always in single digit. So be prepared and since outdoor is no-no after sunset, kids will face problems. We had 3 of them with us and they kept themselves busy. Owner informed us of his plan to install a TV in the common dining room for entertainment in evening.

The are extremely happy with the hospitality, service and attitude of all persons concerned with this property, starting from the kitchen staff to the owner of the property, Mr J V Negi.

We had a great time and will we go back again? We are already planning for next summer. My best wishes for the Team AOFC. Keep it Up.

We went to Sangla as a group of 3 friends from Delhi. The last 100 kms. drive beyond Rampur is bone-rattling as road is practically non-existent. But once you reach the camp site all the shudders and judders are forgotten….as it's a beautiful location. Untouched, pristine beauty. Snow capped mountains rising on one side, brown rocky slopes on the other side. The gurgling of Basapa river can be heard in the background, a 10 minute easy walk from the camp, across another camp next door: Banjara. Mr. Negi (Manager/ Owner) and his staff received us warmly and welcomed us with fresh juice from apples of their own orchard. Tents are spacious, comfortable beds and can accommodate 3 adults ( however 2 adults and 1 child may be a better fit). Attached bathroom has running water, geyser and English style toilet…no complaints on that account. Electricity trips very occasionally. Ample secure parking is available. The best part of the camp is the staff…helpful, ever smiling and non-obtrusive service. Food is excellent, great variety and customised to your choice. Do consult locals and go on short and full day treks around. Recreational facilities for children may be lacking….can be worked on. Otherwise, excellent value for money. We stayed 4 nights….came back happy and without a complaint.

We went to Sangla for a marathon in May 2013 along with lots of friends and family. We were a total of 9 people with 4 kids and what a trip it was!! The hospitality at Apple Orchard Farm and camping is simply amazing. The adults and kids settled in very quickly and the food was fresh and excellent. The cook, Mr. Vijayendra and all the staff were most helpful and courteous. There was a landslide the day before we were scheduled to reach. Mr. Vijayendra and his team met us and help carry the children and luggage with such ease that it didnt seem like a hindrance to our holiday plans. The marathon runners were also helped with food (and the right kind) to help with the pre-race preparations. The scenery were most wonderful with picture perfect views right out the window as you wake up. All in all, a most memorable trip.

First of all,I am writing this review at the time when cloudbursts have wrecked havoc in Kinnaur. We were lucky to return just a day before it all happened. I pray for all the affected and dead- locals as well as tourists. May God be with them.
To reach this camp you have to negotiate wildly winding unmetalled road from Karcham(which is very very exciting for bikers like me). On reaching Sangla,just ask for Banjara camps which is adjacent to Apple orchard; around 7 kms from main town. They haven't put many signboards for directions.
Well the camp is very beautiful, located just adjacent to river Baspa and you can hear the wild river gushing in your tents. This not a very costly camp unlike its neighbours (infact much cheaper than others), so the caretakers here are not professionals from hospitality industry. Instead they are locals, the ever smiling and ready- to-serve-you locals; they are very simple and down to earth crew. So sometimes you have to ask for your needs. On our arrival they didn't serve us non veg in dinner. But just as we asked them, it was a feast of chicken for the rest of our stay-be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. One must try item is their local apple juice with its unlimited supply. We gulped down probably a gallon n a half during our stay. Sensing our extreme love for their juice they gave us a few bottles for our return journey too.
Just as I told earlier, ask them for directions to the river and must spend a noon there. Its complete wilderness with Baspa's icy cold water flowing like madness. We packed some light snacks n tea for our little picnic by the banks of the river and it was one of the most peaceful yet exciting afternoons of my life.
As far as accommodation is concerned, the swiss tents here are very good with clean and hygienic washrooms attached. But this place tends to be very quiet and lonely(boring hence) sometimes, so I'll recommend it only to a group of minimum four persons.
And when there's a bunch of friends then Apple Camps is the best place.
