Lonavala calling!

Yes, the ideal hill station of Maharashtra which is popular among young boys and girls for spending thrilling and adventurous time! I chose the destination mainly for the electrifying things to do in Lonavala, which I had heard a lot about! The place is situated amidst natural beauty on all sides; there are forts, caves and dams to check out apart from the escapades and camping activities.


Fun filled things to do in Lonavala

We were three of us, and spent our first day chilling out at an affordable yet amazing hotel in Lonavala. It was a sudden trip as we wanted to explore the location by ourselves and not through the eyes of internet. Camping has always been on top position in my trips. From the hotel staff, we heard about Dellas Adventures at Kunegaon.

We spent 1145 INR and had the best time of our life!

All three of us were hankering for something more. We went to Pawna Lake in Lonavala for a mud race session. The race has been designed so intelligently which tested both physical and mental strength. We had a refreshing as well as exhausting time, and it costed 1499 for 2 hours. We came to know that ex army commandos have designed the obstacle race, I suggest everyone to try this.

On his insistence I accompanied him to Pune. We went to his house where I was treated with some delicious Maharashtrian delicacies including pooran poli. He took me around the city. We went to Sarad Baug, Sinhagad Fort, Dagdu Sheth Ganpati Temple. He then suggested that I try my hand on paragliding in Pune. I jumped at the offer as I love adventure sports. We decided to leave for Kamshet early in the morning next day.

That is what we did and oh my God! What an amazing experience it was to do paragliding! I later got to know that they also have three day introductory course. Since next day I had to return back home I was not able to enroll for it. But I have decided that someday when I visit Pune again I will enroll for this amazing paragliding introductory course.
