Make a move towards Bhandardara dam for a great camping experience. This location is the best for camping in Maharashtra as it is situated in the dam and surrounded with mountains. When the water level goes down after monsoon, this dam becomes an ideal place for camping.

Apart from camping there are many other activities can take place like, bonfire, boat ride in the lake, barbecue, you can get your own musical instruments and have a good time with your people.

As the time passes by, you can experience the magnificent sunset from the campsite. The colours in the sky turn stunning. Just sit back and have a look at the beautiful scenic sunset. After sometime, it turns out dark around. Then the real fun comes out, Stars. Yes, Stars. Why am so excited about stars? Just ask yourself once, living in a city life do you ever get time to look at the sky and see the stars? No. Here once you look up at the sky, you will encounter sky full of stars. If you visit this place between March and May there are high chances to encounter our own Milkyway Galaxy. Best time to visit this place is around the new moon nights, so the sky is darker and the stars are brighter.

The experience of Stargazing is more fun if you have a little bit knowledge about positioning of planets, starts and galaxies. Telescope will be a cherry on top.

Food and tents can be arranged by the locals. Camping has become a livelihood for the locals staying at Bhandardara. If you have your own tents and know how to make food then what are you waiting for. Get your bags packed and head to the campsite.

PS: one needs to carry warm clothes as the temperature in the night drops down quickly with a cold breeze.
