        positive review  Awesome experience! Very hospitable staff and value for money! I got to know about this through my friend and we randomly planned this weekend getaway on 20-21 feb to Khopoli and I am glad that we did. They had numerous Team games and activities which helped in making more friends. There were several other groups and after team bonding activities it seemed that everyone out there was my childhood friend. The singer at the bonfire was magnificent. The other day, we had a little forest trail followed by mud games, rain dance and relishing lunch. Also, they have to zip lining for free for which generally others charge you. It was a very first experience of staying in a tent and I liked it very much. My entire group of 13 people was so happy with the experience that we immediately planned for our next trip too. It was such a power packed weekend that I would never forget. Thumbs up for hikerwolf
