  • Trip introduction

    Bring in the New Year at this scenic lakeside campsite just a short ride away from Mumbai. You'll spend the whole day at the campsite, with the lake sparkling under the sun, and can enjoy outdoor games or a swim in the lake. As evening falls, the bonfire is lit and the music begins, and you'll be served crispy BBQ snacks and dinner later. After midnight, you'll retire to your alpine tents for the night.

    NOTE: There are limited twin-sharing tents which are available to early bookers. If not, there are 3- and 4- pax tents. The cost is the same for all tents.

    IMPORTANT: Do make sure you carry enough blankets/sleeping bags per person, as it can get quite cold at night.

    Alcohol and smoking are NOT allowed on this New Year camping trip.

    Destination

    Khireshwar is a charming village in the foothills of the rugged Sahyadris. The lake lies away from the village, and you'll be camping on the banks of it. The rugged peaks of the Western Ghats surround you, and you'll be able to see the ancient fort of Harishchandragad and the tip of Konkankada in the distance. In the winter, it can get very cold here, but the skies are clear and full of stars, and mornings are misty and beautiful.
