The camping at Prabhalmachi as well as the next day trek to Kalavantin durg was such a wonderful experience. The peace and calmness at the camping site was truly mesmerising. And this review couldn't have been completed without mentioning our amazing guide Mr. Sagar. He was truly a great guide and took great care of everyone on the trek and made sure that everyone is safe. Also the star gazing was an amazing experience. I truly recommend anyone planning for a 1-2 day camping to give this place a try. And thanks to Thrillophilia for all the help starting from planning for the trip to the final confirmation of the trek. Hope y'all have a great trek ahead in life.

This was a very peaceful and relaxing weekend that we spent at this camping retreat, hosted by the caretaker, Ranjit and his team there. Once there we didn’t have to spend on any activities, cause the permission and guide charges were already taken care of and included in the package. However, the package did not include lunch and we had to pay for that separately, which was something I wish they could change.

I came across this activity at the right time because I badly needed a break from routine and spend some time in nature. The trek was easy and everything was taken well care of by the leader, Manish Ji.

Tada waterfall is a hidden marvel that one must explore for adventure. Since its crowded, we booked this trip in advance and it was very convenient at the actual time of touring. We climbed the rocky trail and it was just marvellous.
