Lakeside Camping and Water Sports
By Mischief Treks
Location : Igatpuri
Date : Every Saturday
About the Campsite :
Think of a lake deep in the heart of the forest, way from all the bustle of the cities and roads, birds chirping, breeze and breath taking view. Your tent will be set up right next to this lake. Mesmerizing sunset and home style cooked simple yet lip smacking food awaits us at our destination. Unlike most camping locations that are extremely overcrowded, Mischief Treks Camping location is serene and offers the ‘real’ camping experience. If you are looking for “hotel-with-cloth-walls” type of commercial camping experience we suggest you should try Bhandardhara or Pawna.
