If there's anything better than camping under the stars, it has to be camping under the stars on an island! Well, let's face it—there just can't be anything more beautiful and exciting than exploring an island and lazing around on a shore with your friends and family.

A bunch of guys from Bengaluru seem to have identified the task at hand and are organising an adventure camp on an island, just four hours away from the chaotic city of Hyderabad. What's better is that you won't even have to shell out big bucks for this unique experience of camping out in the middle of a lake!

The second day at the camp will kick off with an early morning breakfast after which you will set out for kayaking in the massive lake. While trained professionals will be present on-site to guide first-timers, old-timers can pick up a kayak on their own and venture out to explore the ends of the lake. The kayaking session will be followed by a high-rope walk between two islands that will be carried out under expert supervision with proper safety measures. Post the adventure activities, you will be dropped off at the lakeside from where you can head back home.
