The CampMonk story began with a hunt for a camping spot for a weekend. Shashi and Amit along with a few of their close friends set out to find a campsite for the weekend that included some beer and fishing opportunities.
However, after many hours of browsing the internet they were unable to find anything suitable. Finding a campsite shouldn’t be this difficult, they thought, so they headed out to a nearby lake to do some wild camping. A couple of hours drive and a few off-road trails later they found themselves at Tonnur Lake. A beautiful man made lake, surrounded by lush flora and fauna. Unfortunately, they also found plenty of empty plastic bottles, beer cans and the like strewn around the site. It was a shame that such a beautiful location wasn’t preserved as a public space. They got down to collecting and disposing the litter, set up camp and camped there for two nights.
Campfire conversations around discovering nature, preserving land for our future generations and simply getting to be outside were passionately discussed. Many beers later, under a start filled sky they made a pact to find great campsites. They made a pact to get people outside, far away from cities, from noise, from pollution to sleep under the stars as it was intended to be. Around that campfire, the idea that was CampMonk was born.
