    Destination

    Bhandardara lies on the banks of a lake, surrounded by the craggy Western Ghats and lush greenery. Thanks to the large lake and the hills, the area around is a few degrees cooler even in summer.

    You'll be camping in comfy alpine tents equipped with pillows and blankets. There is a Western style washroom on the campsite, and you'll be served picnic-style meals in the open air.
