Our Summer Camping Sessions and Activities.

Knowing the place

In this short session, the campers are acquainted with the surroundings: the mountain ranges like the Karakoram, Lower Himalayas, and Pir Panjal, meadows, and routes leading to other mountains and alpine lakes. This session gives them a feel of where they are camping and what lies in the surroundings.
