Camping in the middle of a Himalayan forest is not everyone’s idea of a holiday! If you are up for spending the night with a lantern, exploring the jungle at night with a torch, living in a tent amid a dense jungle, rappelling on the rock face, waking up at midnight to the call of the barking deer, or if you’re lucky, a leopard, then you are sure to love an adventure at Getaway Jungle Camp.
Getaway Jungle Camp is true to its name, and to reach it, you must cross the big lake by boat (or a swim!), and hike a short distance through the woods. The campsite is a dried out lake of Sattal, making it a specular valley whose hillsides are dotted with colourful trees of oak, pine and deodar The two dozen tents of the camp are interspersed with tall, bright green poplar trees, planted back in the early 1990s. The surrounding forest is home to leopards, porcupines, wild boar and barking deer. Its location in this forest makes the camp a haven for bird lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, and an ideal place to spend a few days in the wild.

3. Sattal literally means seven lakes, and while two of those have dried up, the ones that remain are reason enough to visit this lesser known neighbour of Nainital & Bhimtal. The two lower lakes look something like a photoshopped picture; isolated turquoise blue waters nestled in a colourful forest of maple, oak & deodar. The three smaller lakes have joined to form a big one, on one side of which lie most of Sattal’s lodgings and food joints, while the other is draped by a dense forest amid which the camp is located.
