As a traveler, enjoy soothing breeze, serene night, starlit sky, warmth of bonfire and many more at the camp-site near dam. - Quote about 'Camping near Pawna Dam' - Sachin Kumar Gupta

This was one of the best camping site I have visited so far. Camping on a side of a dam, with just the moon light and stars above you. A perfect weekend gateway near Mumbai and Pune. A mesmerizing view and camping time far away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. It was an amazing experience for all of us. We stayed here for a night and it was totally worth it. If you are expecting a resort type fun, this is far from it, whereas this is pure nature stay near damside. This campsite is owned and managed by nice people, and their services were simply superb. 

Transport: You can directly reach to the campsite by your scooter, bike or car. Campsite is approx 110 km away from Mumbai and 60 km away from Pune. The drive to the spot is little steep at times to avoid night/evening drives. It would be best to reach before 4 PM to enjoy the fullest. As soon as you would be about to reach this place, you will see lots of paragliding near the hill. 
Follow this route from Mumbai: There are regular trains from Mumbai to Lonavala. From Lonavala railway station you cal also get shared/private jeeps to the campsite.

Other than that we enjoyed star gazing, and the place is all about Dam-Mountain-Sky, You, and your team-mates.
Post that we continue the acoustic guitar session by Sanjay with end-less chatting, till we felt like sleeping (who feel very sleepy)
Basic Washroom facility was available at campsite.

Next morning, 6:30 AM Enjoy the beautiful Sunrise (optional)
7:30 AM Enjoy the live waterstream released from the Pawna dam
8:30 AM to 9 AM- Breakfast (Poha/Upma/Omelette/Bhurji)
If you have opt-in for rafting, you can go for rafting after breakfast. People also do kayaking. Many people were swimming and enjoyed that to the fullest. The place was great, so when in afternoon temp increases, you can sit under the shade, as tent will be very hot. But even better take a dip in or drive up to Tikona fort (in morning) or Tikona picnic spot (by noon). Nice place for kids to play around too. Be careful of the flow as its deep in some places and could be dangerous if you don't know how to swim.
11 AM Check-out and saying goodbye with a promise to meet and do something like this again.

We had wonderful event with amazing and enthusiasts team-mates. Beautiful and pristine location and to be remembered for long, loved the live music session, games were good, food can be better and washroom facility should be improved. Witness the sunrise by the dam. Calm, Peace. Good Vibes. The night stay in camp was one of the experience and morning fog around the place and dam looks superb. It was the perfect team event we could ask for. What better can you get in this package! 

May the moments of life experiences, team event, group together and celebrations lit up our lives.
