I booked the camping site for 19th Dec 2018. We were a group of 3 girls and we were notified that we are the only group coming to the site for 19th Dec (We were a little skeptical knowing that we are going to be the only group). HOW WE REACHED THE CAMPSITE - We reached the Lonavala Station around 11:30 a.m. We had to report to the already given location at 3 p.m. We hired a car from Lonavala station to the location which is 15 minutes from Tiger Point {approx 18 km}. -The manager came to pick up around 3:30 p.m. and we did a 20 minutes trek to the camping site. -The campsite is in the saltar village. For the return, you can either call any hire car (we called the same person who dropped us to the campsite a day earlier) or take a bus. You will have to confirm the timings of the bus beforehand at saltar village. EXPERIENCES OF THE CAMP - the campsite is well-located and the view is exquisite. - the manager and the care-takers(3) were extremely polite. They served us a welcome tea and Maggie and gave us a brief overview of what/where/how of the campsite. The tents were already made for us. - the site has ample space for recreational activities. We played badminton, carrom, archery and a little bit of hammock swaying as well :D - The barbeque and bonfire definitely stole all the thunder. - the dinner was simple and delicious. -the night sky was clear, starry and an almost full moon. Around 2 a.m. it got a little scary @-@ with all the wind and bizarre night sounds. - the ethereal sunrise !!! DONT MISS IT. To summarize it with a metaphor, it was "EVEN MORE FUN THAN A BALL PIT FILLED WITH CANDY!!!!" SUGGESTIONS/TIPS TO THE VISITORS -the place is perfect to click some amazing pictures with gorgeous backgrounds (especially during sunrise). - they provide facility to charge your phones -you can bring your own items like a telescope, speakers etc to personalize your stay (for some items you might need to update the organizers as well). -completely safe for girls. -the washrooms are clean. -you get a full network in your phone. -the organizers are available on phone and WhatsApp. You can call or message them regarding- commute, services, itinerary etc.

Amazing Experience. We booked the Pawna Camping on Thrillophilia at discounted rates. We visited the place during rainy season in the month of August, and yet the experience was mesmerizing. The tents were neat and clean with blankets and bedsheets provided. The food was unlimited and okay for both Veg and Non-Veg, with the barbeque being the standout performer. Kanda-Bhajjis and Tea was also unlimited. While travelling to Pawna, prefer the Kamshet road via the expressway, as it is better and fast. Our tour operator for Pawna was Amol Karke and team. They were very friendly and helpful, and were always ready to help on WhatsApp and phone calls. Thank you Thrillophilia.

"We booked pawna lake camping through Thrillophilia for Saturday night. We were coming from Pune and along the way we found some fellow campers too which made easier to reach the destination as we were coming for the first time. We checked in at around 5 and immediately welcomed by the host and tents were allotted. We got fresh and the most important part the washroom are absolutely clean and dry. We were offered tea and snacks after that. There was ample of time to appreciate the beautiful sunset of pawna lake before the 7:30 barbeque. There was an option of veg and non-veg for the guest and can also bring their own food and barbeque. By the time of barbeque everyone got familiarized to each other and were playing outdoor games like volleyball, dart, badminton, my favourite part was swinging in the tree swing. Most of the guest were dancing to the music playing, The atmosphere got lively and we got hot dinner by 9. We were spending time with each other than electronic gadgets. The tent was warm and comfortable and enough blanket was given to go throughout the night. Next day we got the breakfast we left by 11a.m.it was an amazing experience. Would love to come back to this place."

"The place is very good and best if u want some peaceful time out. The camping guy helped us a lot while coming to the camp from nearest railway station. They served warm and good-in-taste food, as the food was cooked there itself in front of our eyes.\nwe did not face any mobile network issue\nThe tent that we good had space for 2 people. \nThe view was just awesome. \nIf u are coming from ur own vehicle it's good else u can use taxi or jeep near te railway station. You do have to bargain from the taxi guy, we paid him 400 and asked him to fill the empty seats in the way if he wants. \nSummary: Great place, good pricing, good food, great view, be carefull with cab/taxi guy"
