LAKHAWATI : Lakhawati Camp

Nirvana comes calling at the Lakhawati Snow Farms Camp, approximately a five-hour haul from Shimla. The tented camp fully utilises the natural advantage of being on the banks of the Shailvi River and most of the activities are concentrated around the water. The camp is in a clearing embraced by hills that are mostly bare, with a smattering of cherry, fig and almond trees. . A lazy swim, a gentle trek, some relaxed fishing or an easy stroll is all that passes for activity. So this summer be adventurous, but gently in Lakhawati.
