"Rajmachi trek was an amazing experience, of course given its beauty any nature lover would get mesmerised, BUT what matters more in such trekking experience is the trekking companions. Sagar Shinde is a great guy and true professional, he went beyond and make us have a great experience even though our trekking group reduced to just a couple of us. I am posting some pics that would be just glimpse of trek and the one with the trek guide Sagar who helped us trek such beautiful place."
29 December 2018
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.
"It is one of the most beautiful and easiest trek around Mumbai .It should be on the top of the bucket list for those who love rain and waterfalls.The best time to go for this trek is in monsoon. The only drawback is if you go late in morning then it gets crowded."
"No doubt one of the most amazing things I have done this year. The trek was brilliant, very thought out. The stay in the village, the homemade food, the really really long but amazing trek, the guides everything was really good. Thrillophilia has definitely become my go to app for any kinds of trek.\nSo this trek takes place in three parts, one to the base village in monsoon, the trek from base village to Rajmachi and back, and the trek from base village to Kondane Caves. The last one is one of the most amazing treks, really helpful guides all along the way and the trek has some amazing waterfalls, scenes and experience. I wish I had done the trek in June when the fireflies come, this time of the year in August fireflies aren't much seen. But apart from that I enjoyed most part of the trek."
"It was my first trek and had an amazing experience. Enjoyed a lot. Rajmachi trek,Shrivardhan fort visit, uday sagar lake side camping at night and music by our wonderful cordinator Hemant. Overall experience was awesome. ???? fully satisfied."
"Amazing experience. Very well maintained resort. The staff is very courteous and professional. Must visit for a weekend trip."
