  • Description

    Description

    This is not just an organisation, it is a family. It’s a family of people coming from different places and backgrounds. Organisers, staff, volunteers, guests all co-operate and live together cooperatively. We have two different kind of accommodation here i.e. Swiss tents (mostly preferred by groups) and dormitories (mostly preferred by the backpackers). It is not just a usual campsite, it has rather retreat space for those seeking a getaway. Spread in a very large area, it has a lot of space calling for creativity. We have many little spaces where we have added some personal touch, making it look aesthetically beautiful. We have developed a huge green area and anyone who finds solace in nature will find a place close to heart. We also have many beautiful treks starting from our property.
    We have most of our staff from local surrounding and we try to provide maximum job opportunity to the locals, we have minimum four paid employees which includes a Cook, Caretaker, Garderner and helper rest we call as per the need. They all are from the local village areas..

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The property is based on the village of Ghinghari, near Khurpatal. It is surrounded by culturally rich places like Nainital, Ramnagar, Khurpatal etc. An exposure to rich culture of Kumaon can be experienced here. There are many beautiful treks which we’ll be happy to take our workwayers to. Any one fond of gardening has a lot to learn and experiment at our place as we boast a large area that has been converted green through the efforts of expert gardeners. Interaction with young crowd who form the major proportion of our guests is definitely a treat to anyone living with us. The greatest blessing of our place is the isolation from the loud and crowded city. Peace and tranquillity, at its best can be experienced at our place which is happily cut from the crowd.

    Accommodation

    We have two types of accommodation – swiss tents as well as dormitory. Based on their preference, workawayers can choose to stay in either. We have enough space to accommodate a large number of people. Tents are meant for sharing by 2 people and dormitories are shared by 5 people. The workawayers might be asked to make temporary switches based on the demands of property’s guests.

    We have an in-house cafeteria that will be taking care of the food requirements which is fresh and most of it is from the locally produce. We will provide three basic Indian meals two times tea occasionally accompanied with snacks including weekly treats.

    What else ...

    The property is situated in the village Ghinghari that is located near Khurpatal a famous tourist destination. To reach the camp site one needs to walk for 2 kms through jungle (where our guides will come to pick the workawayers up) . There are many activities that people can engage in while staying at the property –these are trekking, paragliding, boating. The places is also surrounded by other beautiful tourist destinations like Nainital, Bhimtal, Ramnagar, Mukteshwar etc. We also have a dedicated group of singers who keep jamming and performing live at the property (which offers a good change to join, learn and teach skills)Location – The camp is located at an altitude of 5700 feet on Nainital – Corbett National Park road. It’s only 12kms from Nainital town (a beautiful British time hill station); about 60kms from first Indian Tiger reserve Corbett National Park and 280kms from national capital Delhi. Located at a moderate height, Camp Twilight is an ideal all year around camping destination.

    The camp is truly a heaven on earth for Bird Watchers, Hikers, Nature and Adventure Lovers. An uphill walk of about 1.25kms (20 minutes) from the main road in the woods brings you to the camp.

    The camp is situated on a private land amongst majestic Oak, pristine Pine, Rhododendron and stately mix forest. The camp is surrounded from 3 sides by high mountains, which are home to a variety of flora & fauna and are a birdwatcher’s delight. Located in this marvelous vale are the tents of the camp.

    Kerosene lanterns and solar lights illuminate the camp during the night, which gives a completely different experience then other traditional camps.
