Himalayan Camp, Sarchu
"Sarchu (11500+ ftabove sea level) is kind of mid-way on Manali - Leh Route (220 kms from Manali and 255 kms from Leh) and therefore most suitable for a transit stay. Sarchu area is remote and camps are setup here during June-Sept period to serve transit travellers. Sarchu area is a plateau and is blessed with exceptional Himalayan Beauty."
The Himalayan Camp is located at Sarchu, 222 kms from Manali on the Leh highway. The camp is located on the main Sarchu camp grounds and is being operated from 2016 onwards every year from 10 June to 20 Sep.
