Camping is always associated as an adventure activity where you have to compromise with the luxury and the comfort of your house. But here in Rajatshan it has been an important part of royalties too and when it has to do with royals, it has to be luxurious. Chhatra Sagar is one such place which showcases this mix of adventure and luxury. This luxurious tented camp pitched on top of a dam and overlooking a lake packed with migratory birds is a tranquillity heaven. The dam was built by Thakur Chhatra singh, a royalty of this region, in the late nineteenth century to deal with the scarcity of the water. The dam changed the dry and rugged land into a lush green oasis and generated the possibilities of farming on it. The dam was named after its creator.
Today the camp Chhatra Sagar is recreated by the great grandsons of Thakur Chhatra singh to provide a magnificent experience to the travellers. Each Tent offers a view of the lake and is pitched at a distance to offer ample privacy. The camp is taken care by the local family of Nimaj who are well involved in looking after the guests and offer a personalised service. It also offers some of the finest and sumptuous Rajasthani cuisines and you can always experience the rural Rajasthan during one of the jeep safari where they take you to their farmland and nearby villages. The camp is an interesting place of bird watchers as the lake is the home various species of birds.
