30 kms from Pune along a winding road, amidst gathering clouds, tucked away in a little village of Mulshi taluka, is Camp Temgarh - a nature retreat.
As Lonely Planet puts it.. " Camp Temgarh is the kind of place childhood is made of. There are trees to plant, dogs to play ball with, streams to dip in, mountains to climb. At Camp Temgarh, bonfires replace television sets and the time of the day is set by the movements of the sun. It would be difficult to evaluate Camp Temgarh using the same benchmarks as other weekend destinations. With cottages, tents and a gazebo sitting cosily in a basin surrounded by hills, Camp Temgarh is not a resort – it’s the weekend refuge of our childhood. Wide open spaces dominate this farmhouse, ideal for a noisy game of football or a relaxed barbeque. Outside the fence, nature’s bounty in the form of rivers, waterfalls and green hills, begs to be explored. Evenings are for old movies – hook up the projector in the gazebo to watch a movie with fireflies, or gaze the stars as you lie in the machan. Life rarely gets any simpler or sweeter than this."
