Welcome to the
Snowy Dhauladhar Himalaya !
Snow Monk Camp is the first permanent trekking base camp in the Dhauladhar Himalaya set between the popular hill stations of Dalhousie and Dharamshala. The camp at present is the only base camp and starting point for many famous treks like Kareri Lake, Minkiani Pass, Baleni Pass, Lam Dal seven lakes and Druni Lake. It also offers the finest traverse trail of the Dhauladhar Himalaya starting from Snow Monk Camp covering Triund, Indrahar Pass and ending at Mcleodganj. We encourage all to come and adopt the culture of trekking and camping by providing all guidance and expertise like a one stop shop.
The camp set in the Khauli valley, is home to the lovely Khauli River and close to its neighbour Nyund River. The camp offers all necessary comforts of a base camp like accommodation in water proof tents with camp cots, pillows, blankets, electricity, charging points etc. Set in 5 platforms, the camp has 12 large tents which each can accommodate about 6-8 people. There are smaller trekking tents also available on request. The toilets are modern western with bathrooms having hot water provided by solar geysers. The overall experience is heightened by the delicious home cooked style food that is freshly cooked and served camping style.
The camp offers many engaging activities in adventure, culture, creativity and community service. The camp has partnered with the local village panchayat and there are ongoing projects throughout the year which makes it our USP offering curated CAS trips for IB schools. Being an approved TAP trained activity provider for the Duke of Edinburg awards program, we offer treks and expeditions for bronze, silver & gold level.
We encourage all our guests to be responsible trekkers and put as less load on the environment as possible by recycling as much as they can.
