Six Days Of Blue - Uttarakhand
A week is what you need to experience the views that change from dawn to dusk, twilight to starlight.
Experience the spiritual connection with the mountains.
The many moves and moods of Ramganga River.
Village children whizzing past.
The cool mountain breeze in your hair.
Wake-up call by the dreamy sound of the barbet.
The old trail that disappears into the jungle.
Chai and hot food in warm tenst and kitchen.
Catching up with mast pahadis in cascading green field.
The star-studded sky.
The moon, the madness and the magic.
Unheard of and far away from the regular vacationing, nestled in the Upper Himalayas is the Ramganga River in the Naachni Region of Uttarakhand.
Over the years, the unmolested beauty of Uttarakhand still stands true with places like these.
The camp is located on a riverside beach in the Naachni Region along the flowing blue waters of Ramganga River.
What's the plan like ?
Learn to Kayak and race over the blue waters.
Beach out, sit on a rock in the river, sleep under the sky, stare at the stars, collect stones, make friends with a villager, have a cup of chai on the riverside. As the days unfold, we'll take walks to the village and spend a lazy days drifting away with the beauty around.
For the adventurous lot of you, there is kayaking, slithering, secret lakes in forests, beach volleyball and mountain biking.
