Camp Potter’s Hill is renowned in Shimla and its surrounding locales for many reasons, from the surplus of adventure activities that take place here to an exquisite bird watching experience, its proximity to the magnificent Chadwick Falls to how it is the only Eco Tourism Resort in the entire region. But, what is most intriguing about Camp Potters Hill is how it got its name, due to the potters that once frequented the hill in search of clay.
Today, pottery is encouraged as a camp activity to get down and dirty hence becoming one with the nature. As opposed to that hygiene is of utmost importance at the camp regarding lodging and their freshly prepared meals.
Apart from that, participating in indoor and outdoor games, peaceful and rejuvenating nature treks and hikes, exciting and thrilling night treks under the supervision of a trained guide also on their fine staff and finally making s’mores by the fire while enjoying a cold one with your family and friends and simply unwinding are a part of the entire voyage here. All of the above won’t even make you realise how you were making everlasting memories and not just having fun on the trip to Potter’s Hill.
