Pitching up a tent right beside the lake and gathering wood for a bonfire; enjoying the view of millions of stars in the endless sky as you doze into a cozy yet comfortable slumber. Waking up to the chirping of birds in the bright morning sky right before sunrise. Okay I won’t tease you anymore. The point I’m trying to make is that you could enjoy all of this at just a 5-hour drive from Mumbai! I’m talking about the camping site at Bhandardara, by the Get Set Camp.
