When you want to go away from the city and want to completely disconnect from Mumbai, there are many weekend gateway options offered by adventure groups in Mumbai and Pune.

This time I wanted to plan something in beautiful nature or stay in the jungle. Small Steps Adventures indeed fill full my requirements and suggested me pawna camping beside pawana lake in Lonavala.

The idea ofstaying in couple tent with bed and blanket was totally new for me. It was new concept called glamping or luxury camping. Small steps adventure organise pawana lakeside camping regularly. SSA is big player in camping domain and offers various kind of camping experience for Mumbai and Pune adventure groups. I also came to know about Halloween camping and new year camping events which are all time hit.
