is perhaps the best way of enjoying the wonders of nature given to
Himachal and sharing the warmth of its people. One can
carry his own gear along - or opt for any of the several camps that are
pitched in various parts of the state. These camps offer accommodation,
catering and a variety of activities like hikes, fishing, nature-tours and
rafting. Most of these offer quality facilities and services.
