Venue - Shaama & Nachani
Nachani Beach Camp: Life around the blue river
A pristine sun soaked beach along the cool blue Ramganaga. Given its modest altitude, enjoying the warm sunny days and cool swims in the river, one can easily forget that the icy Himalayan peaks loom just around the bend from Munsiyari. We stay in neat alpine tents on the beach, ride mountain bikes, learn to guide Kayaks, catch fish in the river, hike along birding trails, explore vast caves, enjoy a delicious Kumaoni meal in the village and sleep every night under a star cluttered sky.
Camp Shaama: Peninsula in the sky
50 kms from Bageshwar, is the roadhead of Shaama, From here we hike along the ‘Gyandhura’ ridge for 2 kms to reach a small table top at an altitude of 7500 ft. Here you are in the heart of the Central Himalayan wilderness surrounded by the biggest indian peaks – Nanda Devi (7848 m), Nanda Kot (6861m), Trishul (7120 m). We stay is small stone cottages just above the beautiful Gyandhura village. The site offers a spectacular 270 degrees view of the Himalayas up close, as the land drops away on all sides into vast forested valleys of the gleaming Ramganga below.
