Serenity and Tranquil, Khodala

So, when I first heard about Khodala, and all the beauty that surrounds it, I was quite curious. This place, beyond Igatpuri, is one of the most Tranquil spaces. We stayed at the Wild Camp resort, and the drive there was stupendous, to say the least. If you're looking for an offbeat getaway on a weekend, this is one place you should be. Completely away from the hustle bustle. You can just drive around, and stop wherever the road is a little wide to have a picnic of your own. If you'd stay at the Wild Camp Resort, then it's just scrolling round, listening to birds chirp, trek up a mountain, enjoy the quiet breeze. Most of the forest land is quite barren but somehow it seems to add to the beauty of the place. Drive there. And have a couple of days of sublime peace. Don't forget to carry some books, too.

Best for nature lovers.

Wild camp resort Khodala is the best place to go if you are a nature lover. With the beauty of lush green mountains, the monsoon rain and waterfalls, if you really want to experience this, it is a perfect place to be in. Our stay was comfortable. Very spacious and clean rooms. Food was good. The place is good for family as well as corporate groups.
