Anniversary Special - Trek to Devkund Waterfall
When we started carvanning, we were just mere Hippies at heart with dreams on tow, had set out to cover miles of distances. Over the past year we have been tailor-making breath-taking experiences for all souls out there who know that life is about how we set out sometimes to look out for our own little moments of ecstasy & wanderlust.
This August CarvanTrips isn't just turning a year old, for our Carvan is now 10000 people strong! Each member has been a crucial part of our whole journey till now.
For our upcoming Anniversary we go back to our first Road Trip to the mesmerizing Devkund Waterfall. As the name suggests, it is a heavenly pond, a hidden treasure of natural beauty. It is so surreal, you’d have to rub your eyes to believe that it actually exists! About 130 KMS from Mumbai is Devkund. To find this place, one has to trek through a pathless jungle. After wandering and treading the fading trails through the thick canopies and rivers, you suddenly witness the pool of water, glittering in sunlight, and casting an exotic greenish blue tinge to the pond beneath. The route to reach the base village is well known for its curvy bends, lush greenery and numerous waterfalls.
Let us all come together and take a Road Trip together as CarvanTrips turns ONE and create an unforgettable experience as we trek to this mystical waterfall & pond. See you there!
