Camping at Pawna lake by Carvan Trips
Camping is a dream of every outdoor lover. Driving along the Golden country side, enjoying the water mirroring the sky, camping in the middle of nowhere, pitching tents next to the lake, collecting wood for campfire, and spending the night amidst fulfilling natural setting can be an amazing experience.
Such is the small pleasure that makes a soul happy and gives freedom from materialism. Pawna is an extremely huge and adorable lake near the popular hill station of Lonavala. There are many historical forts around like Lohagad, Visapur, Tikona, etc. to trek around. This is a CarvanTrips Select trip: A personalised Road Trip & Adventure experience which requires no minimum booking and no dependency on any group. A fun new way of discovering Hidden locations, Secret campsites, Adventure activities and unique experiences on your own, without the worry of uncertainties. Each of these destinations come highly recommended by our past travellers and Carvan Trips endorses these only after personally visiting there.
Reach the base village before sunset by 5pm and head to the lakeside for camping. Enjoy the sunsetand the surroundings. Later enjoy a Campfire(Create your own story telling, games, music andother fun activities around the fire). Have Dinner and Sleep early so that you can spend a little time around the lakeside next morning or maybe catch the sunrise.
Next morning, wake-up and spend some time around the lake, go on your own photography escapade as Bhandardara is strikingly beautiful. After a fulfilling morning adventure, have tea and breakfast, pack your own luggage or gears and later disperse with beautiful memories
