Lakeside Camping and Water Sports
By Mischief Treks
Location : Igatpuri
Date : Every Saturday after monsoon
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. Mesmerizing sunset and home style cooked simple food awaits us at our destination. Unlike most camping locations that are extremely overcrowded, Mischief Treks Camping location is comparatively still untouched by random junkies walking in to campsites. It offers the ‘real’ camping experience. If you are looking for “hotel-with-cloth-walls” type of commercial camping experience we suggest you should try our Bhandardhara or Pawna Campsites. This campsite is basic campsite so one needs to keep expectations accordingly. Do not expect fairy-lights, DJ, Rave party, Club-Music, Waiters etc.
