Looking to escape the city life of Mumbai? Need a break from the traffic and crowded streets of the commercial capital of India? Then Bhandardara is the place to head off to for a weekend break or even a mid-week outing.

Bhandardara is a beautiful yet less known hill station near Mumbai in the Sahyadri hill range. Bhandardara is located at an altitude of about 2471 feet above sea-level. We at TLOW.in organize one night Camping in the open under the twinkling sky at Bhandradara for Rs 1500/- all inclusive.

To reach Bhandardara board a train from Dadar railway station at 11:30 HRS to Kasara with us. The train journey takes about 3 hours, reach Kasara railway station by 14:30 HRS. Walk out of the railway station on the western side and hop onto a shared jeep to the town of Ghoti. From Ghoti board a shared jeep to Bhandardara.

The travel from the town of Ghoti to Bhandardara is one of a kind where most of our campers don’t sit inside the jeep but prefer to travel on top of the jeep. Travelling on top of any vehicle is not only banned in most parts of India but is also very dangerous, but in this part of Maharashtra it is a done thing since public transport is not very efficient. We reach Bhandardara by 16:30 HRS. People from Pune, Nasik & Mumbai can also drive down and meet us directly at our camp site by 17:00 HRS.

On reaching Bhandardara we have our lunch which consist of authentic Maharashtran Missal Pav and chai. Post lunch we take a jeep (10 minutes ride) and head to our camp site from where one will get a splendid view of the Bhandardara lake. We set up our camping tents, mats and start the Bon fire for the night camping.

Post sun-set the real fun begins, at around 20:00 HRS we set up camp fire and make some hot soup to keep ourselves warm as the mercury level begins to drop. After soup campers are free to enjoy the evening as they want. Some bring along their musical instruments and sing and dance, some prefer playing music from their phones, while some just like to lie down on the mats and star gaze.

Dinner is cooked and served anytime when the campers are hungry. Dinner is very basic camper’s food which is also our TLOW campers favorite Maggie noodles. Post dinner your options are sing and dance or star gaze.

Star gazing at Bhandardara is simply out of this world, it is very unlikely that you will camp under the open skies at Bhandardara and not see at least two shooting stars if not more. Bhandardara is an ideal place to get your telescopes since the sky is pollution and cloud free, making it an ideal place to observe the constellation of stars and planets.

Since Bahandardara is a hill station the nights get very cold. During the winter months the temperature drops well below 10°C. So carrying thick woolens and blankets is important to avoid having a bone chilling freezing cold night.

While camping at Bhandardara TLOW.in does not provide tents in the basic camp (Plan A), but mats for people to sleep on and experience sleeping under the open sky by the lake and spot multiple shooting stars as they zip past at the speed of light.The reason why tents are not provided at Bhandardara is because sleeping in tents just blocks the whole breathtaking view of the countless stars that can be seen in the open sky at Bhandardara.

Next morning the campers wake up by 8:00 HRS and pack up to make it in time for the 10:00 HRS jeep back to Kasara. Breakfast is served at a vada pav stall near the Bhandardara bus stop. After breakfast and hot chai (tea), we hop onto the waiting jeeps and head back to Kasara railway station to make it in time for out return train at 12:15 HRS to reach Dadar railway station by 15:30 HRS

The best time to go camping to Bhandardara is during the winter months from October end to March, since the weather is perfect and the skies are clear for star gazing. The only time camping at Bhandardara is not possible is during the monsoon.

Bhandardara is also a very safe place to camp out in the open since there are no wild animals or even snakes around the place where TLOW.in sets up camp. The only animals that prowl that area are pet cats and dogs.

Camping under the open skies at Bhandardara is something that everyone must try at least once in their lifetime since it’s not very often that you can camp in the open and see over a hundred stars and spot at least a couple of shooting stars all in a 24-hour trip very close to home.

IMPORTANT: 

Swimming in the lake is strictly prohibited and no one who camps with TLOW will be allowed to swim in the lake.

Minimum Age: 18+

    Our first camping experience. Away from the concrete jungle & chaos of Mumbai, we had a lot of first time moments on this camp. Travelling on top of the jeep, learning how to set up tents, barbecue preps, the bonfire, star gazing,sunset and sunrise, and some very special moments with music, laughter, friends & awesome nature. Last but not least the sudden rains were the cherry on the cake.
    Thumbs up to TLOW for everything.

    This was my first time camping with TLOW even though it is my college friends company. But, I am so glad I did this. Really needed some stargazing, barbecue and a break from Bombay.

    ‘The Land Out There’ is a name that itself is enough to attract the fairly adventurous side among us. Bhandardhara is a scenic, picturesque location. The campsite overlooking the lake with the night sky is a perfect romantic setting. Instead we were four guys revelling in the place’s and each other’s beauty.
    Anuja, Denver and Sujeet were great hosts! Their friendly, home like attitude could be tasted even on the barbecue.
    We will definitely follow the schedule you guys have set up to see more of the land ‘out there’

    Indeed, Idea of any “trip” is about the journey far more than it is about the destination. Where you go is up to you, as is how you get there. Had the amazing opportunity to climb up on the carrier of the jeep & loosen the reigns, sit back and enjoy the ride in reflection and wonderment at the vastness that surrounds us in every direction. Camping, star gazing, Camp Fire, Great Company. Would like to thank Vrutika & the team of TLOW for letting us explore the nature in best yet most reasonable possible way. To find your own inspiration – a quick getaway to Bhandardara is recommended. Hoping to explore much more in future with Y’all.

    The arrangements made were very good and up to the mark. Food served was good and so was the weather. A must visit place for you all.

    The trip from Mumbai to explore ‘TLOW’ for the first time was beautiful!
    beautiful wasnt how it started though, with the scary adventerous, life risking yet never to forget jeep ride, where sitiing inside the vehicle was too main stream. We explored the land out there from the top of the jeep! <3
    It makes you spend time with yourself!
    From a first time trip to the interiors to swimming in a lake for the first time to sleeping under the stars, to cooking dinner on a bonfire to using an open air washroom.
    Bhandardara had plenty of 1st time experiences to offer me! what made the trip better was 'The land out there team'

    p;s Anurag and Kadambari were amazing!!
    Just one complain:
    camping near the lake in the night would enhance the overall trip!
    soothing and peaceful that is what the bhandardara was for me

    Started with an amazing jeep ride, sitting on top of the jeep was a little scary for the first few minutes but then it became amazing. Then finally reaching the land out there…The breeze, the view, dam/lake, boating, making maggi and soup from the dam water, watching and waiting for shooting stars….
    Never thought i would do something like this.
    This trip has been so amazing and memories I’ll never ever forget this….
    THANK YOU SO MUCH…..
    Lobo you are a gem of a person, so approchable and fun to hang out with…

    Always wanted to go for a star gazing trip, so glad decided to do it with you’ll. Loved swimming at the dam, the heat killed it later but i guess the cold in the night made up for it. Thanks for making the trip so mucg fun. Loved the swimming, kings cup at night, campfire, roasting marshmellows and maggi. Definately travelling with you guys again!!

    The experience was amazing because camping is always an amazing experience. This was actual camping trip for the first time though…I also did’nt pack my bag properly because of my stupid friends. Also my first time travelling ‘WITHOUT’ my family around, such a long drive on the carrier of the jeep, the swimming in the reservoir of the dam, the sleeping on mats, the campfire, dancing, roasting marshmellows, star gazing, the weather…
    All in all, once in a lifetime experience, which i will remember…ALL MY LIFE!!!

    Star gazing,bonfire,uncomfortable mat, cozy blankets, marshmellows, crazy dancing soomehow morphed into a pretty amazing evening. Everything from the bumpy jeep ride pn top of the jeep to drying ourselves on scorching hot rocks after our impromto sip in the mucky lake added to our experiences. Both our organisers were extremly friendly and make awesome memories for life. All in all the trip definately went better than expected.

    Had a really good experience,had fun camping, looking at the stars, saw some shooting stars which was awesome, burning the wood making fire, soup and noodles which was a whole different experience, hate peeing in the bushes but that was totally ok, good company and over all a fun camping trip.

    Finally I met sherwin! The planning for this trip to Bhandardara had begun more than a week before. The first best thing that I like about TLOW is the hospitality. Like even though Sherwin is the funniest guy around and taking peoples cases , he would still be the last one to eat, to make sure that everyone has eaten til their stomachs fill up.
    I liked the camping most of all, cooking maggi and soup in the wild with tribal trance playing in the background to making sure the fire never went off, to serving people food and getting water from the lake, lighting up the wood, sitting under the tree and feeling the insane wind gushing through! We were a hungry bunch of people who would eat anythng around alive .
    The experience of knowing a 6’4″ humongous character – Alric and the “coolest” stud RSK. The chillest trip ever… I wouldnt say it was awesome because I’m sure we’re gonna do many more trips in the future.
    Hope you’ll do amazingly well…
    Awesome venture, Amazing plans, brilliant co-ordation, what a Team!

    Thanks guys because of you all I get to know and see the places that I never heard about that. I even never knew it ever exits. IT was really great. I really enjoyed to talk with some people. The special moment was that in the afternoon I sat alone on the stone and enjoying the wind and the moment, It was speechless.

    Was waiting to get a break out of this stressful weeks at work and just sit and chill. This trip has been exactly what I wanted. Fun, calm, windy and mostly the peaceful atmosphere of this camp.Been an amazing experience and will always cherish it, Looking forward for more trips.
    Just to add a few activities and games would have killed it.

    It was definitely what I expected it to be, and then some. It’s the small experiences that make it better than going on a trip as a tourist. Like riding on top of a jam packed jeep or staying up all night to keep the fire going.

    The crazy jeep rides, the bonfire, the cooking and other fun-filled activities. Last but not the least, worth mentioning is ‘Sherwin’s ‘passion, dedication towards conducting these trips.

    From sitting on top of the jeep to playing UNO and then trying to break the seven tile tower and then the chilling night, cooking the soup, lighting the fire. I remember everything and all these moments just bring a smile on my face and light up my eyes.
    The highlight of this trip were definitely the shooting stars. That was #3 on my bucket list. This was a splendid experience. Star gazing is one of my favorite hobbies. I love to just look at those twinkling star!!! and you guys were simply awesome. This was my first camping experience and THANK-YOU for making it one of the best experiences. I loved it to the core.
    I just feel that instead of the Idlis if you guys could arrange something else also it would be great. Everything else on this trip was perfect!

    Had the most amazing time camping with you guys. All started with chilling under a tree by the lake, playing games and relaxing. The most amazing time we had when the sun set and it kept getting better. Filling water from the lake, collecting wood and cow dung for the fire, carrying logs, cooking soup and maggie, followed by Kings 😉 . Had the most brilliant time doing all of this and the best part of next morning which made my day was travelling on the jeep. Loved it all.
    I am surely coming for many more trips.

    I loved the detailed description about the place that you’ll go camping to sounds really nice and wonderful with the whole feel of sleeping out in the open and then being able to see so many shooting stars. I would love to join you’ll on this camping trip but the sad thing is I’m from a small town OF Talara in Peru and India is far far away from where I am. your country has been on my list for many years but never have I had enough money to make the long trip all the way to India.
    I really like the matter on this site really good and it has surely inspired me and now next weekend im planning on doing something very similar with my grand children in this weekend. I hope we get to see shooting stars and live a night in the wild like how you’ll do every weekend in India. Till next time travel well and travel safe my friends 🙂

Enjoyed myself a lot playing 7 tiles, strumming the guitar in the cold with so many singing and dancing to the tune. Met stars after a very long time & loved every bit of this trip. This indeed was an awesome trip and a much needed one. Thanks

    This also has been one of the few outings I have had with my TTDA family and this has helped me grow closer to them and know them more. Thank you for helping us bond together very well. Really looking forward to many more such trips with TLOW. Looks like finally there’s a team ready to help people see places they have always desired to at a very good rate.

    OK This was my first camping trip, so didn’t know what to expect. Knew it would be tiring but the two hour long walk really bummed me out. Never the-less, the satisfaction of reaching the destination got me into the mood again. Cracking up the bonfire was something I hadn’t done in a very long time & it was really fun doing it. Too bad the tent thing did not work out, but it turned out to be a good experience sleeping under the sky and counting the stars. All in all nice place with mad people 😉
