Overview

Recommended for Age Group 18 - 22 years.

After an exhaustive academic year, the Dharamshala Snow Trails camp is a much-needed and well-deserved treat for students.

We highly recommend Dharamshala Snow Trails to all young explorers as this is a fantastic combination of diverse experiences of the Himalayas. Tranquil Himalayan surroundings, easy treks, astonishing landscapes, cozy campsites, delicious food and snow-fight with your close friends is a perfect recipe for a great summer camp.

Situated in the southern escarpment of the Himalayas, the area is traversed from the north-west to south-east, by varying altitudes of the Shivaliks, Dhauladhar ranges and the Himalayas. We camp on top of the Triund peak and enjoy the majestic views of the mighty Himalayan peaks, glaciers, lakes and McLeodganj town. Try your hand at rope-based adventure activities like Multi vine and Rappelling. Enjoy the snowfields near Laka Got galacier. A day to explore McLeodganj and Dharamshala for getting insights of Tibetan culture,Tibetan food and a visit to Dharamshala Cricket Stadium adds to this unique summer holiday. Make this summer memorable by booking a 'different' vacation with your group of friends!
