Offering much-needed solitude and some peace and quiet, on the weekend of Holi every place is a crowded mess.

We decided to be away from the crowd this time around.

Our Campsite at the Bhandardara Lake is one such place. Tranquil and Quiet.

About Bhandardara

Bhandardara is situated close to Igatpuri in the Western Sahyadris. The village is located in the Ahmednagar district of the state of Maharashtra, about 185 kilometers from Mumbai.
