Perched on the Mukteshwar ridge in an apple orchard is Camp Purple, a name inspired by the ever changing colour of the sky at sunset. This sleepy Himalayan town with some of the best snow peaks views is a walkers dream strewn with meadows, jungles and temples.
The ridge stands formidably out into a sea of mountains from where everything is falling around. The horizon is also below you with wide open skies cluttered with stars. Every season brings surprises. With the blossoming orchards in spring, to succulent peaches apricots and plums in summer. From the magical sunsets of monsoons in techno colour clouds to yellows and browns of autumn to the burning red on the endless Himalayan snow covered peaks in winter. If all this does not drive you mad there is rock climbing/rappelling at the cliffs, deep jungles for explorations and completely mast pahadi Camp Purple team to take you around their villages for a friendly Himalayan meal.
Rock climbing/rappelling, jungle day hikes, some of the best sunrises and sunsets, fruit picking, Himalayan village lunches, waterfall splash, basketball, archery.
