Bhandardara Lake Side Camping

Looking to escape the city life of Mumbai? Need a break from the traffic and crowded streets of the commercial capital of India? Bhandardara is a pristine water reservoir and also a famous weekend getaway near Mumbai situated near Igatpuri hill station. The shining blue green water of Bhandardara and the surrounding lush green mountains is a great treat to eyes. Imagine a camping trip near the edge of this lake coupled with friends, food and fun. A cozy night in camping tents under the blanket of millions of stars.
natural lake swimming and Eco friendly stay with relaxation and PEACE.

Bhandardara is a beautiful yet less known hill station near Mumbai in the Sahyadri hill range. Bhandardara is located at an altitude of about 2471 feet above sea-level. We are going to organize one night Camping in the open under the twinkling sky at Bhandradara. The literal meaning of Bhandardara is valley of treasures. Here the elements of nature are in perfect harmony - from the highest mountain peak in Maharashtra, to one of the largest lakes and oldest dams in the country Star gazing at Bhandardara is simply out of this world, it is very unlikely that you will camp under the open skies at Bhandardara and not see at least two shooting stars if not more.

Boat Ride at Arthur Lake: 
We can take a boat ride to feel the cool wind and breathtaking panoramic view of the rolling hills. The boat ride is enjoyable and offers spectacular view of the surrounding hills. The view enhances in the evenings with sunset No motorized boating is allowed at Bhandardara (Arthur Lake)
