  • Trip introduction

    Spend the weekend at a lakeside campsite, enjoying the cool breeze and starry skies. You'll spend the day enjoying the sparkling lake, and as the sky grows darker, you'll gather around a crackling bonfire and eat crispy BBQ snacks. Sleep in cosy alpine tents which will open to scenic views of the lake and the surrounding hills in the morning. You can take a swim in the cool waters of the lake and after this, you'll enjoy a delicious homecooked breakfast.

    Destination

    Located a few kilometres away from Khopoli, Kalote Lake is surrounded by charming villages and green hills. The picturesque campsite is on the bank of this lake, just 2 kms off the Mumbai-Pune highway, with great views of the rugged Sahyadris. The campsite is landscaped in steps, to ensure everyone gets views of the lake. Each tent is mounted on a wooden platform to keep it dry and comfortable. Behind each tent, there is a small toilet cabin and a tap, for the convenience of campers.
