    Four of us, astronomy enthusiast decided to visit a place far away from city light pollution for skywatch on a new moon night. While we were looking for place, my friend came across this camping site. Although, it is run by local people, booking through website and local arrangement were absolutely professional.

    Just before monsoon, this region has some peculiar trees that are host to a lot of the fireflies who twinkle in the night's darkness. the sight of the twinkling fireflies (Jugnu as they call it in hindi) is beautiful to watch, an experience to live and not easy to capture in camera. the drive through the ghats is also a pleasant 3-4 hour drive both from Mumbai or Pune. Weather just before monsoon is just the ideal time for a pre-monsoon trip as well. Camping stay is taken care of by roundtheworld who have arrange for decent accommodation and desi food. Overall a good weekend get away.

    Beautiful place with amazing view. There are amazing groups performing live at night in front of bonfire and amazing atmosphere. Food is okay if you are travelling you could carry few things to munch on that would be amazing. Watch Fireflies during firefly season. Don't Hop in your tent just wait until 4.30 to 5.30 am and witness beautiful star and shooting star is a bliss not to miss on
