Fireflies and Lets Photograph Milkyway Galaxy 04th 05th June 2016

Camping-Mumbai-Weekend

Join us for Night Photography and Camping on 4th 5th June 2016 at Bhandardara  

The campsite will be at Samrad Village (Sandhan Valley) which is in the interiors of Maharashtra and one of the darkest spot in our  state with least amount of light pollution. And with the absence of moon, you will witness the darkest night sky possible.

One may see the Milky Way with their naked eyes and spot numerous stars and galaxies that are never visible from the city. For all  astrophotography lovers, we'll be taking some killer star-trails and milky way pictures. It's gonna be a treat for your lenses. Or if you  get tired, you may chill in one of the open tents and immerse yourself under the sky filled with gazillion stars. Location: Samrad  Village (Sandhan Valley)

Rs 1800 per person 

 

 

Camping is usually a time when you go back to basics and enjoy simple pursuits such as reading, watching stars, hiking, swimming and playing games together as a group. Camping offers peace and quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Its helps to get close to nature.
