Team Punenightlife was recently invited over the weekend for the reopening of Forest Campground at Forest Hills, Tala, and we decided to send Shivangi Mandody from our team to experience two days of absolute, clean fun in the outdoors .
Right from living in eco-friendly tents, live barbecue with the fresh produce, live music, a nature trail to Kuda caves, archery and rifle shooting, old school games (Tug of War, Sack race, Lemon and Spoon race, Hopscotch and Tic Tac Toe), therapies at the Spa in the main property and movie night under the stars, The Forest Campground had everything planned to welcome the season in style!
Set within what looks like an artistic landscape with verdant greenery, serene water-bodies and an edge-of-the–valley backdrop, Forest Hills, Tala, located at Tala in Raigad district Maharashtra approximately 150km from Pune & 160km from Mumbai is a perfect getaway from the hectic madness of the city!
While Forest Hills Tala offers luxurious concept-based accommodation, a cardinal highlight of the property is the Forest Campground located at the highest point of this hillside retreat.
Forest Hills Tala reopens every year after the rains, and welcomes happy campers as the weather gets cooler and there’s a nip in the air! But the Forest Campground is no ordinary campground. It’s a destination that truly celebrates the outdoors and the bounty of nature while giving guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in every way in what “Forest Living” has to offer.
