  • Trip introduction

    Make this New Year's Eve extraordinary and celebrate it by camping near the backwaters of Pawna Lake. Tap your feet to some heart-thumping DJ music and then gather around a crackling bonfire with your friends and family to savour some starters and dinner.

    As midnight creeps in, the New Year 2020 festivities will start with a cake cutting ceremony and a dazzling fireworks show. You'll launch red lanterns into the sky, the colour of which is said to bring good fortune. Sway to the acoustic tunes of live guitar music for the rest of the night and awake early for a refreshing Zumba session on the first day of the New Year.

    Destination

    A beloved camping destination amongst all nature lovers, it only takes a short drive to enter the beautiful environs of Pawna Lake. You'll spend New Year 2020 camping under a blanket of stars in tents pitched right beside Pawna Lake. Soak in the views of the lush green Sahyadris and the glittering lake as you welcome the New Year with your friends and family.

    You'll spend the night in cosy tents equipped with sleeping mats. The temperature can dip as the night moves along, so be sure to carry blankets and enough winter wear to keep you warm.
