    Destination

    Located near the Rajmachi Fort, the Shirota Lake is easily accessible via a 1-hr drive from Lonavala. Your campsite, pitched on the banks of the lake, gives you a panoramic view of the Sahyadri hills surrounding the lake. Winters at the lake bring chilly evenings at the campsite, making for a fun and lively bonfire session. Summers at the campsite are equally fun with pleasant surroundings.

    You’ll be sleeping in tents that come equipped with a foam mattress, blanket, bed sheets and pillows. The campsite comes with a kitchen/dining tent to serve delicious veg/non-veg meals.
