If you're looking for a different kind of New Year celebration this year, here's a great option. This outdoors adventure takes you to Dehne, where you will camp under the stars and enjoy the cold winter breezes. At night, away from the city, you'll have clear skies and beautiful views of the moon and the stars. You can try your hand at some night photography, or experiment with taking star trail photography. Apart from that, enjoy a fun campfire with friends.

Dehne Village is a beautiful small village that retains its quaint, rural charm. It is located in the midst of the rolling landscape of the Sahyadris, with views of Ajoba hills, Sandhan Valley, and Ratangad. In the dusk and dawn hours, the sky turns a grogeous blend of orange and pink, giving you endless photo opportunities.
