  • Trip introduction

    This secret location is the perfect weekend adventure: it's close to Mumbai, but it offers you a chance to swap the concrete jungle for the real jungle. You'll camp right along a river, so you can wake up to a gorgeous view right outside your tent. Apart from the peace of this riverside campsite, you'll have all the fun of short hikes into the wilderness, a lively bonfire and barbeque in the evening, and stargazing to look forward to. You can also dip your feet in the cool waters of the river or simply soak in the scenic beauty of this location.
