Taurus is the most elaborate RV (recreational vehicle) in India as of now – the campervan camping – was anchored on the riverbanks of Raavi near Madhopur, Pathankot, (Punjab, INDIA). It offers the best experiential outdoor holidays.

To enjoy your holidays, you need to have complete faith in us.

Holidays to genuinely relax, detox and rejuvenate with `quality time’ in wilderness the lap of nature with comfort, away from humdrums of life come at a price. There always seems to be a compromise too; hotel comfort at the cost of location opportunity and/or location opportunity at the cost of hotel comfort. Why not both at the same time and place?

Quality comes at a price.

Camp is run as “self-service”. Though, we set up everything. We support the cause of the green (nature conservation). 


Packages are available from Rs 15,00 to Rs 15,000 per person per night, depends on the combination of facilities, food, region, number of days, number of persons in a group, etc. This new concept of outdoor holidays has Special Offers.

Our tariff cannot be ascertained or evaluated or fixed on per day basis, which is easier to do in case of a hotel or any static infrastructure (resorts and camps).

  • It’s very expensive to run and maintain this infrastructure – tangible and intangibles – wear and tear costs a lot, toll tax, other taxes, general service of the vehicle and infrastructure, salaries, rent of locations, fixed and variable, etc. And many other invisible expenses.
  • Being a mobile camping, tariff differs from area to area, route to route even in the same region and in the same month.
  • Exact tariff for each holidays program/ itinerary is either mentioned or you may call/ WhatsApp +91-9888 380386      +91-6280 595008, based on the area and route.
  • Package includes only stay onboard Taurus and camping trailers, food from the kitchen of Taurus, is extra unless clearly specified otherwise. 
  • Hired transport for excursions will be mentioned clearly with your program/ itinerary.
  • Single Supplement is applicable.
  • There are many activities which are not undertaken by everyone, so we have kept our activities optional and to be paid if consumed or availed, basically to ensure that guests save their money.
  • Our tariff plans are two types –  ‘all inclusive’ and ‘limited’ (with basic tariff for the basic needs), which are mentioned in ‘What is Included’ and ‘What is Not Included’ with each program.

These programs are all inclusive, with activities mentioned, extra items and unlimited food for the following:

  • Indian eg food (morning tea/ breakfast, lunch, soup, dinner).
  • Morning evening tea/ coffee, snacks.
  • Beverages (packaged juices, aeriated drinks).
  • Safaris.
  • Barbecue (veg and non-veg).
  • Transport travel,  as per the prescribed program details, veg barbecue,  camel ride and safari (where possible), local transport for shopping, excursions, if time and circumstances permit then a photo session for the guests, unlimited service from the kitchen, etc.
  • All basic needs are taken care but with a certain limit to facilities and activities which doesn’t cut corners on quality.
  • We have only removed the extra frills to bring down the tariff of the holiday.
  • It suffices for the experience and one won’t need to look at one’s pocket to pay again while being on the program/ tour/ holiday, except any expenses at the facilities other than Taurus.
  • Basic tariff and basic camp needs to ensure it suits those who love ‘soft adventure’ and fits into the budget/ pockets of those who like to have very basic needs on outdoor holidays.
  • So you  “pay as used/ as consumed” basis.
  • Basically, to let you exercise your choices and save your money for the undesired items and activities.

Your comfort is our concern! 


These terms have been written, considering the tough and demanding operations in all respects, where expenses are incurred much before the commencement of your expedition/ holiday. This is our standard policy which is applicable to all our programs/ expeditions. In case, there is any change to this policy, we shall mention along with your itinerary/ program which will be final which we deliver under ideal conditions.

All extras to be cleared at night before check out.

  5. Any bill for the extra stay at any hotel or camp for bad weather resulting in roadblock or there is delay for any reasons (technical failures of equipment including the breakdown of Taurus, trailers, tractor) shall be paid by the participants on the spot directly, there won’t be any adjustment or refund in tariff paid for the itinerary. We won’t be able to extend any credit facilities. We will do our best to co-ordinate.

  7. The above mentioned tariff for children is with a valid proof of ‘date of birth’, otherwise full tariff.
  8. Any special dietary for children to be arranged by the parents, without any adjustments and refund. We may charge extra for special diet if needed.
  9. A certain degree of respect and care (for the physical fatigue of the crew) has to be extended by all participants collectively and in personal capacity towards the crew of Green Dot Expeditions and anyone else associated with our operations. You pay for your holidays and NOT to demand your own ways with disrespect of the crew and others even in case of any failure in any kind of service. We are humans too and can err!
  10. Size of the Group on expeditions: max 8 participants, unless we specify. If your group is less than 8, then we may book rest of the seats by exercising our choice without any prior intimation to anyone in the group who have already booked. Otherwise, we may have to increase the tariff to recover the basic common costs of operations.
  11. Please read about your responsibilities while being in our roving camp.
  12. There are no guarantees in outdoor life/ holidays in  wilderness and tough conditions offered by these regions, where we operate. The circumstances and weather conditions can change suddenly and program can alter abruptly. You are requested to be considerate.

  15. We don’t change our programs to cut corners on our quality, quantity or to save money.
  16. If you need Taurus for astrophotography as a subject lit up then you must discuss this as a group before the tariff has been quoted. It needs lots of effort to set up Taurus as a foreground subject and then sleeping arrangements are done differently.

We insist that please understand this is an outdoor activity and can not be compared with static camping, resort, hotel or restaurant for its food, sleeping and any other comforts. But at the same time it offers a different kind of experience for those souls who love outdoor life and its a luxury for outdoor experience with nomadic lifestyle and has no comparison as of now in the tourism industry.
