  • Trip introduction

    Head out of the city and away from the noise and the traffic jams, to bring in the new year in the midst of nature. You'll head to a secret location in Pen, where you'll camp beside a natural pool, spend the night with friends and loved ones around a bonfire, and make your own barbeque. At night, you'll learn how to pitch tents, and you'll fall asleep with just the stars above. Wake up to the chirping sounds of birds, breathe in the cool air and make a fresh start to the year.

    IMPORTANT: There are no toilet facilities for this trek, so you'll be going into nature. However, changing tents will be provided for women.

    Destination

    Your camping trip takes place in the middle of gorgeous greenery, beside a natural pool cut out of rocks. Pen is located at a short distance of 80 kms from Mumbai, known for its temples and close proximity to beach destinations and other getaway spots. You will be picked up from the Pen railway station, and taken to your secret location, close to nature. At the campsite, you can cook your own food, pitch tents, and take a dip in the pool.

  • Day 1 of New Year camping trip: New Year's Eve celebration

    You'll need to report to Pen Railway Station by 10:30 hrs. The operator will arrange your transport to the secret campsite via private transport or tuk-tuk, depending on the group size. Your campsite is a short hike from the road head and takes you through a forest. Once at the campsite, you'll dig into a simple but delicious lunch on dal khichdi and papad, and then you'll be shown how to set up your own tent. After this, you can try your hand at cliff jumping and ziplining and there is ample space at the campsite to indulge in fun outdoor games. Return to the campsite in the evening and you'll sip on hot tea as the sun sets and as the sky grows colder and darker, merry bonfires will be lit. Music will fill the air and you can sing along and dance to the latest hits. You'll munch on crispy barbeque snacks and at night, a delicious dinner is served. If you're feeling brave, take a late-night dip in the cool waters of the pool. You'll celebrate at midnight, and when you're ready, retire for the night to your cosy tents.

    Overnight in tents.

    You'll dig into a simple yet delicious lunch upon arrival and in the evening, you'll have hot tea and biscuits. After sunset, a bonfire is lit and you'll gather around and munch on crispy barbeque snacks. At night, you'll be served dinner with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. The operator provides comfortable weather-proof tents that are shared by 4 people. You'll need to bring your own sleeping mat, bedsheet, blanket, and pillow, as you prefer.
