How to reach Camping & Stargazing in Dahanu?
Yamunavan Camps are located at Dahanu Road, Dist-Palghar. It is about 10 km away from the Dahanu Station or 3 hours drive away from Mumbai. Furthermore, It’s spread over 24 acres of Chikoo Orchard, with a plant nursery, two different camp areas & a playground.
All About Camping & Stargazing in Dahanu
The camping starts by arriving at the location in the evening at around 4-5 PM. You are welcomed by Mayuresh the owner of the place. He explains to you about the place, followed by some refreshments like Sandwiches, chips, and tea, as much as you’ll like. After settling in, there is a 24 acres land, to walk, see and explore at that time. Or you can see the sunrise and explore in the morning, all depending on what you wish and how you would like to do your camping. There are also hammocks on which you can chill. Or a special Shamiyana built for a rather more concrete relaxation.
DJ set-up with speakers
You know when you’re ready to rock the music. The DJ set-up with speakers comes on fire post-sunset. Seems like they start playing songs for people to join in and dance. You can also request songs or connect your mobile to the console and let everyone enjoy, so long as you play what the crowd likes 😉 We had a long dancing session. Almost everyone was sweating and burning some calories.
Home Cooked traditional meal
After good cardio done by dancing.. Our hunger pangs struck. Which made us move to their dining section, which has tables and chairs with curtains spread around in popping colors. Like most of the places they too offer both veg and non-veg options to choose from. Again, you can eat as much as you like, and their Chicken cooked in fats and traditional spices were the best I have had in recent times.
Sheesha, booze, and Bae
You can decide how you would like to chill; whether plat cards, have Sheesha, or just laze around. There is enough space for everyone’s privacy and enjoyment, without getting or having trouble. When it comes to camping, you’re also concerned about safety. Since the entire place is owned by them and not a government or public place where anyone can come in. We felt quite safe and enjoyed our stay amidst greens.
Stargazing in Dahanu
Want to reap the benefits of stargazing. Try camping in the month of November- December. After your long talks, just walk around the space and find your own space for stargazing, this is the one we found, where you can just keep looking at the stars and have a moment of awe.
It feels different from sleeping in the tent, but it’s peaceful. I slept well till 8 am, as the trees around make way for a shade for us to sleep more by providing less sunrise in the morning. The tents are comfortable with bedding for twin sharing. Once the tent is sealed properly, no mosquitoes can enter in. But in the night be prepared for a mosquito fight. If sitting out, the owner did help us with some repellent coils but do carry your own too for additional safety.
The morning is shinny and a bit hot, they serve some traditional Missal Pav and tea for breakfast, which you can have as much as you like. There is a common western-toilet for all their guests. It’s quite clean with a washbasin to take care of your morning rituals.
Camping & Stargazing in Dahanu. Live in a tent, enjoying DJ music, eating home-cooked traditional meals, late-night chit-chat, star gazing, long walk in their 24-acre property, Sheesha, booze, and Bae. What more do you need for a relaxing weekend at Yamunavan Champs?
