Dehradun

As one approaches the fabled vale of Dehra, the Queen of Hills, Mussoorie, shimmers into view from on high. On the highest west end of the same ridge is the ancient Bhadraj Temple. Just down the slope from here lies the enthralling expanse of Pegasus Camp spread over a naturally landscaped area.

The Camp area, too cascades gradually downhill - divided into stepped-farm like level sections, in which are situated the various staying, sitting, dining and activity areas with their especially designed structures. The whole locale is bordered on two sides by wire fences, which, as the Camp is shaped like a ship’s deck, come to meet at one point (the prow) that is fondly referred to as the Titanic Point; and not without reason! With two parallel, gushing mountain streams meeting up hundreds of feet below this precipitous edge in a muted roar of bubbly confluence, anyone standing here can magically replicate that iconic Hollywood Movie’s celebrated pose.

One has only to gaze southwards on a clear day to be awed by the ever-changing panorama spreading out as far as the eye can see - the silver sliver of the Asan river as it snakes through the Google-like backdrop to disappear into the Yamuna somewhere near the verdant hills of Himachal standing guard like sentinels in the distant western horizon.

The Camp is about 38 km from the Dehradun Railway Station / ISBT. The journey to the Camp is informative as it takes you by renowned institutions like the elite Doon School, the Forest Research Institute (FRI) and the cradle of leadership of the Indian Army - the prestigious Indian Military Academy (IMA).

En route one is treated impromptu to many eye-catching, and surprising, photo ops, like the scenic bridge over the wide Sorna River, and a gushing waterfall strewn with mossy boulders, that turns into a veritable Niagara during the monsoons! Not to mention the fortuitous sightings of a scampering partridge (Teetar) or startled Jungle Fowl, or, perhaps, a gorgeous, rare Magpie or a coal-black Mynah perched on a thorny shrub ablaze with bright wildflowers. Finally, down a feisty forest track, to the small hamlet of Dibli, the last habitation, one reaches Pegasus Camp.

Staffed almost entirely by well-trained and courteous staff recruited from the aforementioned, nearby villages (a pointed Pegasus policy), the Camp is an optimal blend of modern amenities and outdoor ruggedness, exuding a sense of adventure that spurs one to be in harmony with Mother Nature.
