Camping is great fun. Living in tents, sitting around camp fires, watching the sky, listening water and forest sounds and eating what is available. Camping is relaxing, humbling and a little scary at times. You leave behind all your assets, your designation and office, your apartment, your car, your gadgets and stay in a tent. India is a great place for camping as we have great mountain ranges, valleys, rivers, beaches, lakes, deserts, wild life sanctuaries etc. All these are great places for camping. Some of these are base camps for long and difficult treks while others are just relaxing holiday destinations. Most places provide the tent and basic conveniences. Electricity is a luxury in most of these camping sites. If you have not done camping so far, you should do it soon along with your family or friends.
India also offers luxury camps but we will not discuss those in this post.
