Though camping interests a limited number of tourists, it can be a totally relaxing and adventurous experience. You have just yourself and your loved ones for company as you see the birds fly past, the river flowing calmly and the mountains in the distance.
Besides relaxing you can take part in activities such as reading, trekking rafting (at a few venues), barbeque lunch and dinner, guitar playing sessions and star gazing. Some camps also include additional activities such as mountain biking, rock climbing and rappelling.
Typical camping packages include 1 day as well as 2 days/1 night. Some of the popular campgrounds near Mumbai include Khopoli (71 kms), Karnala (63 kms), Vasind (63 kms) and Kolad (122 kms).
