Overview

The secret lake view camp is located close to a hidden unexplored lake. We will take you on a short hike to this hidden lake. This campsite offers the right adventure-relaxation combo. How? Away from the crowded tourist stay-ins, this campsite is a peaceful retreat. You can also plan a trek to Tikona fort which is nearby. On the way to the top, you will see multiple water tanks, caves, temples, and a massive stone wheel. Once you reach the top, you are presented with a unbelievably picturesque view of the Sayadris and the forts around, and a complete 360 degree view of the surrounding area.

Super value for money. This place is located in a forest surrounded by trees with a lake view. The locations is close to 2 lakes. We went to the private lake after a 10 mins walk. It was so pleasant with no one around. My friends and i had a great time. The staff is very kind and will arrange everything from transport to boating facility nearby.

Loved the secret waterfall near the campsite. The coordinator was helpful & showed us the hidden waterfall near the camp. The waterfall itself was worth every penny. The coordinator told us its a seasonal fall and is only active in the rains. Then we went to the private lakeside and were lost in its beauty. Would recommend this campsite to everyone.

We stayed here for 2 nights while we were touring lonavala. Its cheaper than hotels & we had a great time at the campsite. The best part was the night sky was so clear with the stars twinkling. This would n`t have been possible from any hotel in Lonavala. Would recommend you to my friends.

The lake was super clean and private. The campsite has western washrooms which was a surprise for us. The staff was very helpful. We had selected the bed brkfst package to just test out the place. We missed the barbeque which looked very delicious. Next time will get the entire meal plan for sure. This campsite is very cheap compared to the services they offer. Will be back soon.

The best part about this camp is unlike the camps on pawna lake which is filled with tourist you get a much quieter and private kinda expereince here. The amenities at this camp were basic but sufficient. The staff is always there to help you out. The walk to the hidden lake was serene and peaceful we loved every bit of it. Would recommend this to all.

We had been to Pawna many times but this campsite was just spectacular. The private lake is completely tourist free and we had a great time swimming there. The service at the campsite is good. The staff was friendly.

The short hike to the lake was fun. The campsite is located in the woods and has a lakeview. We had booked the entire campsite for my friends birthday party and it was a blast. The food is delicious & the best part was the barbeque. Loved it all!

Unlike the pawna camps which are always crowded this one has limited number of people and peaceful forest location. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel safe. The walk to the lake is the highlight of this campsite and is worth it.

The lake walk and swim was the best. We had booked the entire camp for a private party. The service is fantastic and the food was delicious. The best part is the lake side visit and swim. You get complete privacy there.
