    It was a great experience overall. Awesome service by caretaker. Just a suggestion to keep dustbins in the premises to avoid people making mess around this serene place and having a bathroom to take shower.

    The trip to Bhandardara is kind of a must in the monsoon in Maharashtra. Try and avoid the weekend as the traffic going up and down would be something to avoid. But when you are at the lake you will forget everything.
    It was a great stay and the awesome arrangements, place is very good for faimly, couples, College group etc etc. Food was also good. And remembering of that I feel like going there again. We had a great camping there, there were fun activities too.

    I just love this place. This place is perfect for camping outdoors in the open sky with beautiful sunset in evening and thousands of twinkling stars which you can’t get enough of watching. The lake view is from camp is like cherry on cake. Imagine waking up to the sound of chirping birds and a view like this. Also the place is safe and the only animal you can find here are stray dogs sometimes.

    My third trip with Travelothon and what an experience! Away from the city hustle bustle, Bhandardara is an amazing place to just chill with your family and friends! The hospitality was great and you get to wake up to a spectacular view of both mountains and the sea! And the chirping of the birds is magical! ❤️
    Take your bluetooth speakers and uno and you’re sorted! Enjoy the view!
    Thanks Travelothon for the amazing experience! Looking forward to my next adventure with y’all!
