Moving on to the basic necessities, this place has a well-equipped washroom for all campers, which also has a hot shower facility! You are welcome. Once you reach Crest Valley, you will be offered tents and sleeping bags, so you don’t have to be bothered about any packing. Now, among all the tents they have up their sleeves, the most loved one is their transparent balloon tent! The tiny igloo-like tent has an adequately-sized double bed, a couch for seating and even a cute bedside table. Just for a second, visualise lying down in this bubble while raindrops trickle down. If this doesn’t feel great, we don’t know what will!

Lastly, when it comes to privacy, you have nothing to worry about. These guys have made sure that each transparent balloon tent is located in an independent space, so you won’t have to worry about being intruded upon by other guests.
