Indiahikes Sari Basecamp: A Quick Photo Tour

Category Photo Story About Indiahikes

By Latika Payak


Deoriatal-Chandrashila trek starts from a small village called Sari. It has around 100 houses.

If you reach Sari when the sun is still out, walk around the village a bit. Notice how the paddy fields are so prettily laid out that they almost beckon to you. There is also a small school amidst the fields. This school was built in 1947 and is the only school at Sari.

The views around the village are gorgeous.

You’ll get your first glimpse of the summit of Chandrashila from here!

If you have registered to do the Deoriatal-Chandrashila trek with Indiahikes, you will be staying at the Indiahikes Campus at Sari. Here’s a quick tour of the campus.

These are the Swiss tents in which trekkers stay while at the Sari basecamp


The Swiss Tents also have a verandah for trekkers to unwind and talk. Keep your shoes out in the shoe racks of the verandah before entering the tent.


Inside, the Swiss tents have eight bunk beds. These beds are neatly placed and each bed has its separate bedding that is sanitized before trekkers arrive.

All tents face an open area. Briefings take place here. Trekkers also warm up in this area before setting off for the trek.


There’s also a spacious dining area in the campus.


To wash your hands, brush your teeth, the campus has a separate area with comfortable washbasins.


Look to your left while you stay at the Sari basecamp, you see the view of the beautiful Sari village.

Hope you enjoyed the stay at Indiahikes Sari Base camp.
