Discovery of Offroad Camps in Kasmoli

by: Nitima Sood

 

A few winters ago, we had a thought to build something on mountains. We neither had money, nor did know anything about construction, but just decided to try it on. We traveled on weekends, slept in the car, ate whatever we could find and scanned the entire northern belt of Himalayas to find something that’s accessible, sustainable and didn’t need too much of money to run. So after a long search, we came to Uttranchal, the holy land (called Devboomi in Hindi) and fell in love with Kasmoli. It’s pristine trees, organic food and tall mountains took our hearts away, and till then we have never stopped searching for ways to return. This is a fruit of our efforts and good wishes of those around us that we’ve been able to reach a stage at which we are ready to share our little adventure with you all – so presenting Offroad Camps.

Love, peace & light to all,

  1. The tents look very comfortable… i dont mind staying here given the beauty and peace everywhere. Im glad you built these humble place for respite. I wonder how long it took you to finish?

  2. Nature has it all! I wish I could also do the same as you did! I love sleeping on cars and just park it wherever we feel like it. Photos are so amazing. It relaxes the heart, mind and soul. I’m a nature lover. Offroad, camps, mountains. What else can you ask for more? xx

  3. I so love this place 🙂 Please take me here! Offroad, Camp, Mountains, Nature..

    1. You are welcome to come anytime dear friend.
      We made this place for people like you only!

  4. Kasmoli really sounds like a paradise on earth. I was not aware of this place and it looks like a great place for a getaway amidst nature. I am sure it would be a great relaxing and rejuvenating experience getting there.

    1. Paradise is a strong word Sandy :-), and I’m sure it would be much much beautiful than this. But our Kasmoli is not bad too!! From here, you can talk to mountains and the clouds all day. A dream-come-true for us, and a calming holiday for our guests.

  5. First time I’ve heard of Kasmoli. I’m so happy to be hearing more about the Himalayas as it is one of my dream destinations. The photos reminded me why I want to go there to begin with. The views are simply amazing.

    1. Hi Marge, Kasmoli is a small village near Rishikesh (around 35 kms). It’s serene, unpolluted and 100% organic. Everyday here is an adventure. Camp is still basic, but we would love to host you if you ever come to this side.

  6. I like places like these where it is not too crowded. You can feel the nature deep within like being one with the nature. Of course, it’s a good way to relax and just enjoy the moment with your special ones.

    1. That precisely was in our thoughts when we began making this camp – have a place where everyone can feel at peace. We are still developing, and are glad that people across countries are able to relate to a place like this. Thank you.

    Wow. What an effort to make an offroad camp there. It looks so isolated but the views are def breathtaking. Def perfect for meditation and relaxing!

    1. The camp is literally off-the-road (about 7 kms inside from the main highway), and opens into a beautiful view. We do conduct meditation workshops there, more so because I myself is an avid meditationer.

    This is just amazing! also the views you have captured here are breathtaking! brings back so many good memories! Thanks for sharing this piece! Cheers!

    1. Thank you for your kind words Sophi. You just made our day!
      Cheers and good wishes back to you.:-)

  9. The views are just breathtaking! It reminds me of the Alps in Europe and the mountain ranges in Canada (even though I haven’t been out of the Philippines.) When is the best time to go here, by the way? 🙂

    1. Hi Aldrick, If you’ve not been out of Philippines ever, this would probably be the best destination to start. October to June is the best time to visit, unless you love rains. Himalayas are so vast, and so beautiful that a even lifetime is less to explore.
      Cheers!
