Traveller Tales From Lonavala

Well I have always been curious to go under some caves and visiting Lonavala was almost like a dream come true for me. Last month I went this place with my friends, believe me guys it was a completely new and awesome experience for me. Its one of the finest places near Mumbai and the best holiday spot I would say, yeah the place has some mesmerizing views, glimpse of the dense forests and curvy small mountainous looks amazing. Away from the city crowd Lonavala offers some really peaceful moments. Camping was quite easy since the ground there is quite flat, and our group spent a amazing time in our over night camps. I would like to recommend this spot to everyone.

Participating in activities like river crossing, tunnel crawl, commando walk, kayaking, tyre crossing was much more fun with the way our instructors organised them. After the fun frolic day, we had amazing times in Maval. Overnight camping was like an experience of a lifetime. Also, as close to Pune, it is a must for all.

For the fun and thrill you can have on this flight, the cost is not too much. The ballooning crew were extremely friendly and assured us the maximum safety measurements. Really loved the whole experience of flying over the beautiful locales of our very own Lonavala.

A perfect weekend gateway.....Nature lovers or people who seeking serene and peace within, its worth visiting. We were group of 11 including kids, reached there by sunset, may be a little earlier we would have check in as we miss beautiful sunset. But nevertheless, we haven't missed the moon n the its only light initially we had before we settled and started our fun. one would be amazed with the beauty of river reflected by moons light like a shining star. I am a nature lover and adventure person, no wonder this camping gives you wings. We had awesome fun, music, barbecue and bonfire. weather was pleasant and comfortable stay in quencha tents. trust me its kids friendly, just that do not forget mosquito repellants and some emergency food for them. Food tasted really well, kind of home food. Do try river swim in day light, we did it next day morning and trust me its more fun than man made swimming pools. Gazing stars at Night and Gazing Sky in the morning its the beauty of this place. Economical, Refreshing, Far from Noise, Pollution....I guess that is perfect weekend gateway one should visit.
