RAJMACHI CAMPING - IN GO. NEE. DA. WADI




RAJMACHI CAMPING  - IN GO. NEE. DA. WADI


नमस्कार / Namaskar

We are in the last month of the current monsoon (2017) and Rajmachi region is at its best natural beauty.

I invite you to visit Rajmachi in one of the week-ends in this September 2017.

RAJMACHI CAMPING  - IN GO. NEE. DA. WADI 

We will extend all possible help and assistance to make your trek to Rajmachi a joyful and memorable event.

There are two Trekking Routes to Fort Rajmachi,
(a) from Lonavala and
(b) from Kondivde or Kondhane village in Karjat Taluka of Raigad
District.
Lonavala – Rajmachi distance is 15 km and it is almost a plain walk, though there are a few ups and downs on this path. It takes about three and a half hour to cover the distance on foot.

During the rainy season, a vehicle cannot be taken right up to Rajmachi. However, a strong utility vehicle like Tata Sumo, Mahindra Bolero, Qualis, etc. can be taken up to Jambhali Phata, on the way to Rajmachi. This route is via Khandala, Summer Hill, Kune village, Della Adventure Resort, Patel Dam and Phanasarai.

The Section of this Route from Khandala up to Della Adventure Resort is a good road fit for ordinary passenger cars. However, the Section of this Route from Della Adventure Resort to Jambhali Phata is a very rough track. It is not fit for ordinary passenger cars.

गो. नी. दा. वाडी (GO. NEE. DA. WADI) is our Camping Site at Udhewadi on the plateau of Fort Rajmachi, for the benefit of Trekkers and Nature Lovers.

However, we modify the above standard package as per needs of a Trekkers’ Group and work out price of the package, taking into consideration the duration of stay and facilities and services required by the Group.

If you require, we will also arrange a route guide for you (for reaching Rajmachi from Lonavala / Kondivade (Karjat side) and for return trek.
We will also arrange a utility vehicle for you from Lonavla to Jambhali Phata.
 Two important conditions which every person camping in गो. नी. दा. वाडी (GO. NEE. DA. WADI)  will have to strictly comply with are us under:

Ø Consumption of alcoholic drinks is strictly prohibited. Every camper has to comply with this condition with honesty. There is no compromise in compliance of this condition. In case any breach of this condition by anyone in the group is noticed, the entire group will be thrown out of our Camping Site without any mercy.
Ø We require a complete list of all members in Campers’ Group (i. e., Trek Leaders and all participants) with

of every person, in a form which will be mailed to the Trek / Group Leader. The Organizers and Leaders of the group will have to ensure that this list complete in all respects, will be given to us before start of the Trek.
