This campsite not one for kids, grandparents or excitable dogs. In spring, the narrow valley on whose floor the site rests becomes a grassy pocket of lambs. It is mainly used as a stopping-off point for intrepid hikers and there is no shower and no hot water, and in 23 years the only thing that has been altered is the color of the toilet door. This is about as basic a camping experience you can have in a designated area for camping and the prices agree. At £3 per adult per night, Singapore Travel the rates are some of the lowest in the country.

    Such a short description but is complete and the details are inviting. Makes me wanna imagine what is it like when I go to that place. I am an adventure lover and there is a big chance for me to visit that place but I guess I still need to save a lot :) Thanks for the introduction anyway.
