PHUNSUKH WANGDU ISOLATED CAMPING



Are you one of those who have always dreamed about spending a night in a tent beneath the open sky, watching the stars while lying down or share and hear stories next to a campfire? Camping is not just a recreational activity but also a meditation for the brain. It connects us back to the roots of raw nature, our primitive sense. Our idea is to connect with the forces of nature and get back raw nature into the cities rather than getting the cities these disconnected places. Come and explore yourself at our camps.

Phunsukh Wangdu Isolated Camping

The reason to add ‘Phunsukh Wangdu’ to the name of this campsite is because of the character played by Aamir Khan in the movie ‘3 idiots’ called ‘Phunsukh Wangdu’. ‘Phunsukh Wangdu’ in the movie is known to be an innovator, educationalist and scientist. Our campsite is itself quite innovative and is being run by passionate people. You will find science in basic things like the construction around the site or camping or eating food on water or plans of construction of shelter with flora as the walls and calling it ‘oxygenated room’ or the even in the stairs that reach the tree arms which are made specially to see the sun rise from on the tree. There are solar panels for electricity and also a workshop for innovation.

There is a beautiful seasonal lake next to our campsite. The lake is nested next to hills and uninfluenced flora and fauna. Sitting next to the lake one can usually feel the air gush through our hair and hear the birds chirp. Feelings which are very uncommon in Bangalore.
