That's exactly how we'd describe our new campsite!
Located two hours from Mumbai & Pune both, this lovely campsite is located in Varsai area off Khopoli- Pen road. Nestled among hills, with acres of green plains spread around and a view of the mighty Manikgad fort, it is a site for a super comfortable yet a completely raw camping experience. With no unwanted vehicle sound and mobile network, it is surely the perfect excuse to disconnect with the outside world and reconnect with your travel buddies and of course, yourself!
When is this happening?
BATCH I: 7-8 March (Pre Holi Party)
BATCH II: HOLI BASH! (10-11 March)
