  • Trip introduction

    Get away from the city and return to nature at this riverside campsite between Mumbai and Pune. You'll camp in tents beside the Kundalika river, and slow down the pace with some peaceful farming and fishing activities. In the evening, you'll gather around a bonfire and toast marshmallows and make Maggi and soup.

    Next morning, you can choose to head out to try whitewater rafting, kayaking, river crossing, or Flying Fox (all activities are chargeable and can be paid on the spot), or go for a two-hour trek nearby.

    NOTE: There are twin and multi sharing tents at the same cost, but twin-sharing tents will only be allocated to early bookings.

    IMPORTANT: Children under 16 years are only allowed in groups over 10 pax.

    Destination

    Muthavli is a small village that lies on the banks of the Kundalika river, close to Kolad. In recent years, the fishing village of Kolad has become an adventure hub for adventure-seekers from Mumbai and Pune. Muthavli is smaller and not so well-known, so it retains its untouched beauty.

    This camping trip in Muthavli offers you a chance to try setting up tents and cooking your own meals (only if you want to; if not, there is a crew to do this), and to try farming, fishing, and water sports.
