years, this has been our most popular trip. We meet in Lonavla and
take transport to the base of a hill from where our short hike begins.
A steep-ish uphill trudge lasts about 30 minutes, this is followed
by a 10-12 minute flat walk, and finishes with a steep 25-35 minute
descent through cool dense jungle. When you get to camp you'll see;
it's really well worth the walk.
camp on the banks of a huge lake. This is a beautiful wilderness
setting and you are unlikely to see any humans except your camping
companions. There is no electricty, no concrete structures or familar
city trappings. We set up a tented camp where you can mingle undisturbed
with nature. You can canoe on the beautiful waters of the lake,
swim in the marked area, take nature walks in the jungle (if you
are quiet you will see wildlife), or you can just curl up with a
book at the lakeside with a "do not disturb" sign on your forehead.
At night, huddle around a campfire and sing songs, go for a moonlight
swim (only supervised and in the marked area) or just gaze in wonder
at the stars above. If you want to fish and have your own fishing
equipment, bring it along for a non-vegetarian intervention.
