Ride/Drive & Leisure Camping @ Gangapur on Dec 28th-29th

Backpack Holidays in association with Canvas N Chrome presents Ride/Drive & Leisure Camping @ Gangapur

Away from the hustle & bustle of the city & with close proximity to a huge dam, Gangapur is the perfect getaway to spend a lazy weekend & avoid the mad scramble for hotels that happens during Christmas & New Years.

Join us to enjoy the rustic experience of camping while not missing out on the convenience of a fixed setup. If camping is not your cup of tea, we have the option of a small outhouse with a verandah where mattress can be provided. To add more, our campsite has multiple clean bathroom/toilet with water heater.

* Itinerary *

* Day 1: Saturday 28th December 2013

Meet up at Thane at 6.30AM sharp on the Eastern Express Highway just after descending the Ghodbunder junction flyover.

Quick introductions & Instructions & we flag off the road trip.

Enjoy the thrill of cruising down a beautiful straight black tarmac & taking in the view around.

Work up an appetite by taking a 20 minute short hike to 3rd century BC era Pandava Caves just outside Nashik city. If the hike & caves are not something that interest you, spend the time lazing around the huge meditation hall built close by.

Check in to our Campsite at Gangapur & have a quick round of Introductions & Camp instructions followed by Lunch.

A short Afternoon siesta post lunch.

Take a tour around the vineyards & taste 4 types of wines at Sula & then spend the evening relaxing on the lawns.

With the sun going back into its shell & the temperature dipping, enjoy the warmth of a bonfire right outside your tent!

Experience the salacious wintry side-effects while you prepare to sleep, the cold would be felt in your feet and, in case of lean guys, in your bones. But that is what we go camping for – to experience life in its elemental state – isn’t it?

* Day 2: Sunday 29th December 2013

Wake up early & head to the Gangapur dam for a bird watching session.

Have a late breakfast post the bird watching session.
