The world is gradually resuming travel after the pandemic has taken its toll over the past two years.

If you are planning a nice retreat for a weekend close to nature, consider camping outside of the usual accommodation facilities.

Here is a list of the top five campsites in India that you must visit to experience nature at its best.

Camping in Rishikesh is a great experience. Live on the banks of the Ganges to develop a spiritual connection with the holy land.

It will be a great break from your hectic and fast city life. Definitely try rafting here.

However, if you want a quiet vacation or a spiritual retreat, treat yourself to a yoga session or meditate by the river.

Tso Moriri is one of the highest accessible lakes in the world.

This lake in Ladakh is a fabulous campsite. The best time to camp here is between May and September since the lake is frozen the rest of the year.

Watching the sunrise from here is an unforgettable experience.

Stay in Swiss tents with attached bathrooms and other modern amenities.

Chandratal Lake, Himachal Pradesh

Located at about 4,300 meters above sea level, the lake is accessed after a hike.

Chandratal translates to “moon lake” and its enchanting beauty will leave you speechless.

It is one of the best campsites in Himachal Pradesh.

Although you can no longer camp near the lake, you can camp remotely and see the lake glow in the moonlight.

Camping in the mountains is totally different from camping in the desert.

Most desert campsites offer luxury tents and incredible hospitality.

You can still feel the thrill of living in the heart of the great Indian desert, surrounded by golden sands for miles.

A camel safari and evening bonfires are a must.

In the evening, enjoy Rajasthani cuisine and folklore shows.

Enjoy a peaceful riverside tent experience at Cherrapunji with a day off from your busy schedule.

Campsites offer scenic sunset and sunrise views, which can be a great opportunity for photographers to keep busy.

Here you can indulge in multiple water activities like kayaking, boating, snorkeling and cliff jumping in the Dawki or Umngot River.
