    Amazing Experience. We booked the Pawna Camping on Thrillophilia at discounted rates. We visited the place during rainy season in the month of August, and yet the experience was mesmerizing. The tents were neat and clean with blankets and bedsheets provided. The food was unlimited and okay for both Veg and Non-Veg, with the barbeque being the standout performer. Kanda-Bhajjis and Tea was also unlimited. While travelling to Pawna, prefer the Kamshet road via the expressway, as it is better and fast. Our tour operator for Pawna was Amol Karke and team. They were very friendly and helpful, and were always ready to help on WhatsApp and phone calls. Thank you Thrillophilia.

    Such a great experience. We had booked the Pawna Camping on Thrillophilia at a discounted rate. We visited the place recently in the month of January 2020, and the experience was quite well. The dinner food was unlimited for both Veg and Non-Veg, with the barbeque being the performer but quantity not as per mentioned(250Gram). Kanda-Bhajjis and Tea were also unlimited. We had noticed that the tent's quality was poor( Chain issue and not able to resist dew factor). While traveling to Pawna, prefer the Kamshet road via the expressway from Pune and Prefer the Lonawala road from Mumbai, as it is better and fast. Don't rely on public transport at all, bring your own vehicle. Our tour operator for Pawna was Anil and the team. They were very friendly and helpful. Thank you Thrillophilia.

    We booked pawna lake camping through Thrillophilia for Saturday night. We were coming from Pune and along the way we found some fellow campers too which made easier to reach the destination as we were coming for the first time. We checked in at around 5 and immediately welcomed by the host and tents were allotted. We got fresh and the most important part the washroom are absolutely clean and dry. We were offered tea and snacks after that. There was ample of time to appreciate the beautiful sunset of pawna lake before the 7:30 barbeque. There was an option of veg and non-veg for the guest and can also bring their own food and barbeque. By the time of barbeque everyone got familiarized to each other and were playing outdoor games like volleyball, dart, badminton, my favourite part was swinging in the tree swing. Most of the guest were dancing to the music playing, The atmosphere got lively and we got hot dinner by 9. We were spending time with each other than electronic gadgets. The tent was warm and comfortable and enough blanket was given to go throughout the night. Next day we got the breakfast we left by was an amazing experience. Would love to come back to this place.

    This place is awesome and amazing getaway from Pune or Mumbai. The host is very hospitable and tents are clean and comfortable. Food and refreshments are decent.Public transport not available for this place so you have to hire a taxi from either lonavla or kamshet which you can get easily. A must visit if you are around.

    We loved the experience at Pawna camp. The person who was organising at the campsite was very helpful and went out of his way to accommodate our requests. Loved the music. The evening snacks and the BBQ needs improvement. Dinner was good. The camp is at the lake shore, you can visit the Pawna lake and experience the serene waters. Cool breeze makes the nighttime enjoyable. For anyone coming, avoid the road from Lonavala ciry, come from the kamshet road from the expressway, its better. Don't rely on public transport at all, bring your own vehicle.

    The place is very good and best if u want some peaceful time out. The camping guy helped us a lot while coming to the camp from nearest railway station. They served warm and good-in-taste food, as the food was cooked there itself in front of our eyes.we did not face any mobile network issueThe tent that we good had space for 2 people. The view was just awesome. If u are coming from ur own vehicle it's good else u can use taxi or jeep near te railway station. You do have to bargain from the taxi guy, we paid him 400 and asked him to fill the empty seats in the way if he wants. Summary: Great place, good pricing, good food, great view, be carefull with cab/taxi guy
