Pikk Global RouteS is a manifestation of shared mission of a team of passionate & committed professionals & educationists; who truly believe that outdoors in all its manifestation is an effective tool for self-discovery, holistic learning and fostering the 'Pikk Global RouteS'.
Nature has been our biggest source of learning through the process of human evolution. However, large scale urbanization and lack of opportunities has created a void in that learning process, thus leading our urban kids to suffer from what is termed as 'Nature Deficit Disorder', something that we are effectively dealing with vide 'i-xplor', our experiential learning platform.

Why Camping Outdoors at Camp Taapu-Sera?

FOOD- Nutritiously sumptuous food- both vegetarian and non-vegetarian- is prepared and served in the hygienic conditions. Locally available items are used to the maximum possible. The food is served under a covered area with the most exotic view of the Himalayas.

CLIMATE- as is the case with hills, the days are bright and sunny and nights are cooler with temperature ranging between 30 degrees in summers to 2-3 degrees during winters. We suggest that a pair of woolens should be carried, as cool Himalayan breeze gets chilly during nights.

CONFERENCE FACILITY- we have a 1900 sq. feet Gujjar Gazebo constructed thatch area that can be used to organize conferences. All the conference related equipment's/stationary can be arranged for team meetings.
