Banjara Camp & Retreat - Sangla Valley Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We stayed in Banjara camps for 7 nights and still found it insufficient ! Perfect getaway for families with young kids. The property is situated in an Apple Orchard nestled between hills with the Baspa River roaring by and feels like one has the best of Switzerland Austria and Kashmir. Wonderful treks and walks for all age groups. The camp itself is also very large and has a lot of activities for the kids of which the river crossing is most fun . Absolutely divine food with an amazingly wide variety of cuisines at every meal. We highly recommend this place for an annual trip of thrills, adventure,relaxation and rejuvenation ! Captain Sud and his wife Chandrika are the finest hosts any guest can ask for , looking after our smallest needs with such care. many thanks to them and their well trained staff for making us feel like family. Rest assured Banjara camps is one of the finest resorts of north india.Definitely coming back again and looking forward to visit other destinations offered by Banjara camps.

The retreat has an excellent location. Once we reached it, we definitely forgot the difficult and bumpy road or better to call it the jerky muddy track that we took to reach the place. The staff is excellent and are ever ready to help you. You must go for the treks and do hire the guide from the camp. Kudos to the management for organizing lavish and well thought out takeaway lunches for the excursions. No TV in the room or tent is acceptable and is not required but I would do well with a coffee maker or atleast a kettle in the room.

Room Tip: When traveling with children avoid the tents.

Located next to Baspa river in the picturesque Sangla valley, Banjara camps is a great place to spend few days. Have great views and a number of short excursions.

They have excellent food and great customer service.

Stayed in the tents for one night but shifted to brick and mortar room as tent was too cold for my son. Anyone not used to cold weather, its advisable to stay in rooms as tents get too cold in the night.

Would definitely go back any stay at Banjara whenever I get a chance.

We stayed at Banjara in Sangla for 6 nights. We were 3 families and had a great time. The place is beautiful. Is clean.... no trash around the place. the food is good .. feels home cooked.
Capt Sood and his wife are great hosts. they take good care of you and motivate you to enjoy the outdoor hikes. They have some very beautiful and scenic hiking routes. The Camp provides you with guides and food on these trips.
If you want to just laze around the camp site, you can walk down to the river, chill your wines/beers in the river and have fun!
Overall a fantastic holiday destination!

Room Tip: Loved living in the tents!

It was an unanimous decision to visit a relatively unknown destination far in the himalayas in the summer holidays, having covered almost all the routine getaways, the himalayas were beckoning us yet again. We were skeptical at first to venture that far in the mountains. Little did we know what was in store for us. Delhi -Chandigaeh was a culinary delight. Well rested we set out for our journey into the hills . The mountains were unpredictable we realized a wee bit late . The rains took us quite by surprise and caught unawares, shivering with cold n rain we managed to reach thanedar way beyond our scheduled time,"prepared"for bad weather and chanting prayers for a better one we set out for sangla.the terrain was unforgiving but the beauty of the himalayas was spellbounding.sighting of the camp was a huge relief. A quaint idea of a camp it was n more.A true nature lovers delight. A traditional welcome by enthusiastic staff and volunteers made us feel special in the midst of the apple orchards. We opted for the retreat rooms.comfy cozy with room heaters, book shelves with books to cater to everybody's taste, rear entrance with a hammock and a spectacular view of the snow capped mountains was all that we did wish for.the canopy with morning tea n beverages, the live 'chai' stall overlooking the river, the apple trees, the scrabble, ludo, chess sets sure did enthrall us all especially the children who forgot all about the ipads, cellphones etc. The cherry on top of the cake was the bonfire every night with live barbecue serving us smoky delights.come morning and Mr. Ansari would b ready to take us onto the treks, a wonderful experience gliding off the snow and shrieking with delight.the river crossing made is acutely aware of our fitness levels all vowing to spruce up on reaching home . lovely chats with Mr. Sood, owner of the camp and Mr. Omprakash the manager gave us an insight of life in the hills.kudos to the team for bringing forth such a unique concept.

All our tiredness of the long journey vanished as we stepped into Banjara Camps at Sangla. A circular arrangement of tents, log huts, dining hall, tea hut, bonfire area, cricket and badminton courts, provided enough space in the premises to move around and yet brought all guests together. Set in a pristine location amidst apple orchards, with snow clad mountains all around and the Baspa river on the edge, it is a mesmerizing resort. Staying in the log hut is a unique experience, wherein you face the mountains and see the river flowing by. The rooms are spacious and as modern as you can get, full of amenities you see in good hotels.

To add to the natural beauty, you will be floored by the hospitality of Capt. Sud and his wife, Chandrika, who treat you like their personal guests and get involved in making your stay very special. The staff at Banjara go out of the way to make your stay comfortable, attending to small details and fulfilling all your wishes, literally like genies in fairy tales.

A minimum of 3 nights stay is highly recommended where in you could go on a visit to Chitkul village, an easy trek by the riverside with picnic lunch, Raksham trek, a nice trek with great views of the mountains, glaciers and woods. You will be accompanied by very capable and helpful guides. Mrs. Chandrika Sud accompanied us for the Raksham trek, giving us a lot of information all along. You can also visit the Batseri village on your way back.

One of the highlights of the resort is the tasty food. The spread is lavish with dessert in every meal Imagine getting to eat lasagna and pasta at a place like Sangla valley! We had a wonderful and memorable stay at Banjara Camps and highly recommend their resorts .

Room Tip: choose the Log Hut / Retreat Rooms

The Camp is beautifully located right next to the river and provides for all that one can expect and need in the circumstances. It is the perfect adventure camp.
The approach to the camp, though, can unnerve very many and can tire one out. So a long stay is recommended to make up for the effort!
The prices are a bit extravagant for the facilities and the catering being provided.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with kids, try to stay in the rooms or the Luxury tents.
