Dance to some DJ music, gather around a warm bonfire with other campers and savour some starters and dinner. As midnight approaches, begin the New Year 2020 festivities by cutting a cake and watching a dazzling firecracker show. You'll also launch red lanterns into the sky, the colour of which is said to bring good fortune. Sway to the acoustic tunes of live guitar and drum music, well into the night. On the very first day of the year, you'll awaken early for a refreshing Zumba session.

    Destination

    Panshet Dam is a popular camping destination, located only 50 km away from Pune. The scenic campsite gives you unbridled views of the glittering lake with the green Sahyadri hills against the blue sky serving as a backdrop. The Panshet backwaters is also a hot spot for fun water activities like kayaking and boating.

    You'll spend the New Years night in cosy tents equipped with sleeping mats. It can get quite cold as the night moves along, so be sure to carry blankets and enough winter wear to keep you warm.
