"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."

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.

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 was a great 5 days trip to Matheran, Lonavala and Khandala. I visited here with my friends and we really enjoyed the tour a lot. We visited the famous Lonavala lake and kune falls.
It was a great 3 days trip to Lonavala and Khandala. I visited here with my friends and we really enjoyed the tour a lot. It was my 1st time that i visited Pawna lake and i was mesmerized wwith a wonderful sunset.
