Dr Shamsher Singh Camping Experience near Bhopal
Excellent
We were welcomed by a cheerful host (Abhishek Tiwari) in a picturesque garden camp setting after our hectic day schedule. From the point of entering into the Thrillophilia event till the dispersal photo shoot, we had an amazing time.The night started with Fun games and culminated with Tasty food, Bonfire and Dances. What made it more special was a birthday party of a member that was quite unplanned still well managed. After a relaxed sleep in our tents, we woke up to the chirp of birds in the serene Bhopal Countryside and geared up for trekking to the highest point of Bhopal i.e. "Manuabhan Ki Tekri". The experience ended with a splendid photoshoot and a bit emotional good-byes with our newly made adventure family. Hoping to do more such great trips with Thrillophilia. -Dr Shamsher Singh
Wow! This is great. I have been on a couple of these myself and you are spot on so far. Can't wait to see the rest.
