Weekend Getaway – Pawna Lake
One has to make most out of the weekend as this is the time where one charges the batteries of their mind and souls to take on the busy and hectic corporate/ business schedule of the coming week. It can be spending time with your loved ones at home, visiting some religious place with relatives and family friends or hanging out with your friends watching movies in theatres. There is also one option of camping that connects with nature disconnecting you with all the worries and boredom.
One such beautiful place near Mumbai and Pune for camping is Pawna Lake. The artificial reservoir built to supply water to the Municipal Corporation of Pimpri Chinchwad, Pawna Lake is located near Kevre Village. This stunning location, 24 km from Lonavala, is situated right in the middle of historic Forts of Visapur, Lohagad, Tung, and Tikona.
With Lakeside Camping, one gets ample opportunity to test the lenses of the camera and to try out various vantage points. With choices of Kayaking, Pedal Boating, and Motor Boat Ride the options for vantage points increase by manifolds. One seldom gets a chance to view campsite from the lake and get mesmerized by it.
Every camping has to be accompanied by campfire and music otherwise, camping cannot be defined. With a common campfire area and light music playing at the background makes a perfect atmosphere to enjoy and forget all the worries. Good Old fun games such as Antakshari and Dumb Charades can be played to get in a playful mood.
Food is something which makes or mar the event if it is not tasty. With the country style cooking, the food has to be delicious. Although it will be simple but delicious. Few campsites also provide the options of Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian dishes making it a heavy dinner.
One rarely gets a chance to sleep under a starry sky with no thought in your mind. On top of it, the reflection of the starry sky on the lake is truly special. It makes one realize the beauty such place offers.
If the night is special, then the morning is glorious. The sunrise view from the campsite is one of kind. The gentle rising of the sun through the mountains and the splashing of the sunrays on the land and water makes a moment to cherish. One never gets a chance to view morning in such a beautiful way.
Post sunrise, do not forget to swim in the natural swimming pool. The chilled water will freshen up you like never before. As a good thing always has to end on a special note, the breakfast is super delicious and tasty. Bidding Adieu to this beautiful place is difficult but when a promise is made to come back again often excites you for the coming weekend.
