Lifestyle in cities these days are mundane and routine. Even while people look for something different all they end up doing is party or eat something unhealthy. Why don’t you try something out of the box, get out of comfort zones, get adventurous, seek out and learn new skills.

Camp Sparrow believes in basic, raw and natural kind of lifestyle.  Pull yourself out of comfort zones,feel the dramatic conditions of the mountains by choosing to stay in the tents. Earthbag houses give out a feel of raw and natural with all the basic amenities yet not losing out on comfort levels. New skills can be acquired by bird watching and taking up nature walks to connect to the nature. Food we serve is freshly cooked and basic with a hint of local cuisine. So, Camp Sparrow neither burns a hole in your pocket nor on your appetite. Try the place so admirable with prices so affordable. 

Healthy Experiences and Happy Thoughts!

Thoughts of countryside, people working on farms, fetching water, good air, good food must brighten up your day isn’t it? Villages, that too in and around the forests and mountains are something way more beautiful than those on plains. They aren’t just picturesque but also reflect a healthy and coordinated living. Camp Sparrow gives you an opportunity to witness and experience such a lifestyle along with trying your hands-on organic farming. We have our own small farm in the premises of camp, peach and pear orchards in the backyard and happy vibes everywhere. We also organize nature walks in and around Jeolikote which go through villages, their farms along with some beautiful landscapes. This introduces you to the local authentic food, organic farming at variated altitudes. This way we encourage people to live healthy, eat healthy and travel happy. 

Responsible Travel!

We all love travelling which makes one feel good. Have we ever given a thought about the harm we are causing to the nature in the name of travel? More number of low-cost carrier planes has increased the emission of carbon dioxide, use of artificial conditioning has increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Untreated sewage water entering our oceans are polluting them further and the list continues! All of these are in turn effecting our own health!! 

What can we do about these? Do we just stop experiencing new things? The answer is not to stop traveling but to travel mindfully.  

Camp sparrow facilitate such responsible travel and stay. Our Earthbaghouses are made of bags filled with earth which
are naturally insulating hence we do not use artificial conditioning of any sort. Garbage or waste disposal becomes a manure to the trees around, also we avoid almost everything that’s not natural. In addittion,our guests get a very earthy, country feel with the stay and homely appetite with homecooked meals. By choosing such properties you are contributing towards conservation. So, let’s take a pledge to start travelling responsibly and mindfully by reducing our effects on nature to the least!
