  • Trip introduction

    This New Year 2019 Bhandardara camping trip is the perfect adventure to celebrate the last day of the year at a scenic destination. At a lakeside campsite, with panoramic views of the mountains, you'll celebrate New Year 2019 around a crackling bonfire, with finger-licking BBQ snacks, in the company of your fellow campers.

    The cool breeze of the lake makes for chilly winter nights around the bonfire. Some acoustic music on a guitar around the campsite makes for fun evenings in the outdoor. After the New Year 2019 countdown, you'll retire into alpine tents, pitched in the rugged wilderness. The next day, you'll wake up to misty mountain views of Bhandardara.

    Destination

    Bhandardara, a popular destination for camping near Mumbai, lies on the banks of a lake, surrounded by the craggy Western Ghats and sparse greenery. Thanks to the large lake and the hills, the area surrounding the water is a few degrees cooler, even in the summer. The pleasant climate, the gorgeous views, the rural outdoor all come together to make one of the best locations to celebrate New Year 2019.

    You'll be camping in comfy alpine tents, equipped with pillows and blankets. There is a Western-style washroom on the campsite, and you'll be served picnic-style meals in the open air.
