Join us for an extravagant camping fun where we will not just camp besides the lake and a campfire, but also prepare delectable barbecue along with acoustic music and delicious food; And in the morning, we will go on a boat ride and visit a beautiful island perched in the middle of the giant lake for a self-defense workshop!

Our Martial Arts expert will host an elementary self-defense session, teaching us the basics of this essential skill. It’s true that martial arts, or in this case self-defense, cannot be learnt in a day. But with a few basic techniques, you will grow confident and also better prepared to combat an unpleasant situation.

Bhandardara is a treasure of natural beauty with a touch of the old-world charm. The sun here glitters elegantly with its silver reflections cutting through the water till the shore; and the daily commute from one point of the lake to another even today is done by the old-school boats.

Learn self-defense, or simply sit and gaze at this magnificent lake, whatever we will do, we will make sure to have crazy experiences and countless memories!
