    Starry Skies & Strawberry Farms: Make New Year's Eve Magical With This Getaway

    Jayati posted on 22 December

    What Is It?

    Go celebrate New Year's Eve at a delightful strawberry farm in Mahabaleshwar which is being organised by the Mumbai Rangers on 30 December, 31 December and 1 January. Camp out under the starry sky, visit a strawberry farm and even pluck some to enjoy the sweetness.

    Who Is It For?

    This camping trip is for anyone who is looking to get away from the city during the New Year's Eve. It is the perfect getaway to grab your bags, convince your partner or friends and head off to the better things in life {read strawberries}. Find yourself hidden in the laps of Mahabaleshwar engaging yourself with everything that's not noise or pollution.

    The camping trip will include the tents for you at the campsite, vegetarian and non-vegetarian buffet, tea, snacks and more. However, the travel from Mumbai to Mahabaleshwar is on you - so book a car from our list, and head to the misty valleys of Mahabaleshwar.

    Why Should I Go?

    To pluck the strawberries my friend, what else? That's right, on day two you will be driven to the strawberry farms from the campsite {a five minute drive} where you can gleefully pluck strawberries and taste them.

    The trip isn't just fruity, you'll also be served food cooked by the locals to get the bang on authentic experience. A lot of fun activities have been planned as well which includes swimming in the river that flows near the campsite, go boating to the boating club, try your hand at archery or dart.

    #LBBTip: When the night is dark and the moon is bright, do a little bit of DIY barbeque as well {with chicken, paneer and potatoes}.

    So, We're Saying…

    Run away to the strawberry farms and camp under the bright stars of Mahabaleshwar to ring in the new and fresh year. It's a beautiful way to welcome a new year surrounded by nature, river and farms. Carry your warmer to keep yourself warm at night lest you think the chill in the air is for the weaker-hearted.

    Price: INR 3,150
