Glamping Spots In India

Glamping, which has become a popular travel trend worldwide, is the glam version of traditional camping. It has luxurious set-ups for those who are missing those opulent hotel rooms, but out in the open, amidst picturesque surroundings and stunning landscapes. And there’s a wide array of adventure activities to keep you occupied when you are done chilling in your camp. The best part is you don’t need to carry your own tent. Here are some fantastic glamping choices in India where you can get away from modern-day distractions without sacrificing comfort.


Grassroots, Wayanad, KeralaNestled in a cosy corner of Wayanad, Grassroots combines camping and comfort well with Swiss tents located in the middle of a coffee plantation and encompassed by tall trees. The gentle river Kabini flowing by adds to the serenity of the glamping site. Grassroots caters to the minimalist traveller with basic amenities like hot water, refrigerator, and television, plus some air conditioning as well. With leather chairs and wrought iron beds, the tents here are as luxurious as they come. The private porch outside every tent makes for a great place to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee and soak in the tranquil surroundings. While here, you can visit the nearby areca nut, pepper, coffee, and tea plantations. Doing nothing and aimlessly lazing around is highly recommended though.Location: Koilery Kunnu Via Pinangode Pozhuthana Post, Wayanand Dist, Kalpetta, KeralaWebsite: https://grassrootswayanad.in/


Banjara Camp and Retreat, Sangla, Himachal PradeshLocated in the midst of serene apple orchards and lush landscapes, the luxury Swiss tents at Banjara’s campsite in Sangla are perfect for a wonderfully relaxing holiday. You could either stay in their tents or choose to stay in the retreat, which serves as a luxury hotel. The river-facing tents here have been tastefully embellished and come with running hot water. Set against the Baspa River, the place has great opportunities for trekking and adventure activities like rock climbing. The treks vary from easy to medium to difficult. The easiest of them all is the 8km Sangla walk, which takes you from the campsite to Sangla village. Then there’s the Rakcham walk which takes you through varied landscapes including forests, meadows, and gurgling streams.
