Stargazing in the city is tough, right? If you’re living in Delhi, then you’re in luck! About an hour and a half away in Sariska lies India’s first astronomy and adventure camp called Astroport. By Jasmine Kaur
For those romantic souls who yearn for a date under the stars but cannot find the stars to begin with, this one’s for you. We city-dwellers can have it rough; as if the pollution isn’t bad enough, even our windy terraces betray us as we look up at the sky. There are no stars, just the city life assuming an orange-brown hue, distressed and bothered after the long work hours in an even longer week.
But there’s hope still. Far from the hustle-bustle of the city, Astroport lies 5 kilometres ahead of the Sariska National Park, Rajasthan. When you reach this place, you may just feel you’ve come to one of the darkest regions in India.
At Night, Sariska is a Blanket of Stars
Gaze the stunning night sky with a trained educator who will help you navigate the sky and find the stars, using telescopes, sky charts, and other astro equipment. That’s not all. It is packed with an experience on astrophotography, telescope-making and zodiac.
