Chhatra Sagar, Chhatra Sagar, India
In the midst of the wrinkled old Aravalli Hills, Chhatra Sagar is run by two charming brothers and their wives as an oasis of comfort.
Set in 1400 acres of farmland, this is an extraordinarily tranquil spot, overlooking a lake with fantastic birdlife (seasonal) and surrounded by grassland. Your accommodation is one of 11 luxury tents, with permanent bathrooms, located above a reservoir which is the seasonal home to flocks of migratory birds. Wake at dawn to watch the sun creep over the horizon and, as nature stirs, tea will be brought to your tent’s terrace.
There is plenty to keep you busy: the nearby village is still something of a secret, the camp’s organic vegetable farm makes for a fascinating guided tour, and the hills around the lake are perfect for walking. Chhatra Sagar is equidistant between Jaipur and Jodhpur and makes a relaxing place to recharge your batteries after experiencing India’s city life.
