Hello everyone! I am Nancy (@escapades_of_syrah). Hope this summer is treating you well. Recently, I went on a small weekend trip to a beautiful, secluded campsite in Bodak, Arunachal Pradesh. I love visiting secluded places, especially mountains and riverside/lakeside. Camp Tani Adventure in Bodak checks all of the above and I am so happy to share my lovely experience at the campsite with you.
Arunachal Pradesh is widely known for it’s beautiful landscapes, gorgeous valleys and misty mountains. When it comes to views seen from the campsite, it doesn’t leave any room for disappointment.
About the campsite:
Camp Tani Adventure is a campsite in Bodak, Pasighat. It is 14kms from Pasighat town and is easily accessible by road.
I have been to this campsite three times on different occasions, my birthday, new year and my most recent trip with my friend and I loved my every visit here. It is such a beautiful place to unwind and be with nature for a day or two. As soon as you enter the campsite you are welcomed by tall trees, and a little sneak peek of the Siang river.
The campsite is spacious with several tents on the ground, two bon fire places, and a view point where you can endlessly watch the Siang river flowing. The view point also has a spacious sitting area so you can sit or lay down and listen to the sound of river while soaking up on the nature around you.
There are also tents build on stilts right next to the river for more intimate, close to nature if you are one of those campers who love sleeping to the sound of river at night. These tents are my favorite as I love to fall asleep to the gentle sound of river flowing and waking up in the morning to the beautiful view of the river and the mountains right from my tent.
If you take camping seriously and love making your own tent you can pitch your tent anywhere on the camp ground.

Safety and Concerns:
The campsite is fairly safe for men and women campers. It is secluded and build on an elevated area. The campsite is intimate as in there are a lot of tents but each of the tent is build intimately so you can safely be yourself in your tent and your surrounding area.
The food served is made by the staff or by the host himself often and made with love and care, catering to each and every need of the campers. The food is also served in locally found “Tora paat” to make sure the use of plastic is reduced as much as possible.
In addition to gorgeous view from your spacious tent to the calming sound of Siang river and the distant mountains as seen from the campsite, you can have picnic at the campsite or at the river bank.
There are two bonfire places at the campsite. It is the best place to catch up with your friends, your family or your significant other over bonfire and barbeque.
You can explore the nearby sight-seeing areas little ahead of the campsite.
