6th May 2005
I had gone along with my colleagues for a company camp-out to a serene place called
This is located in Maharashtra state of India
It is near a Lonavala, a famous tourist place.. near Pune
Pavna Lake: 12 kilometers off the highway at Kamshet on the road to Pavna Dam this west-facing site overlooks the Pavna Lake. The take-off is 300 above landing. Good for basic scenic flying and watching the waters turn to gold as the sun sets over in the hills beyond. The site can get pretty thermic even in the late afternoons.
As usual i was carrying my digital camera (Canon A75)
It took us about 3 hours (thanks to some traffic, un-needed stops and missing some turns)
Anyway we got there....and i felt that those 3 hours were worth the wait
Lake and waves
and this one
We all got there and our first job was to put some tents as i was soon going to get dark
ok all done!!
We reached there about 6:00
My first action was to take some snaps
This was one of the first and i thought the best photograph
and a Nice and warm Sunset
LAKE IN THE SUN
When we were about to reach there, we came to know that people were shooting for a famous Crime-Thriller Serial , CID,
The actors were in a power boat
Later when everything was settled and we have put our tents we sat down to eat some great pohas
While some guys were setting up the bar tables...some like me were sitting together and playing antakshari....
After it was about 8:00, the actual party began.
This is Mohit
and these are other guys
(L > R) Saurav,Ojas,Danish, Bala,Neeraj and Chetan
we had some delicious chicken fingers made by our veggie colleague
Though me being a veggie could not savor those delicious chicken fingers..i feasted on some
lip-smacking and spicy Paneer Kababs
Later after a long night of boozing people went to sleep..while pranksters (yup! we had some) were either dropping cold
ice cubes down somebodys pants (obviously when they were sleepig) or into tents or had their cell phones tones screaming like crazy..just to wake them up...nice one guys....
(luckyly i wasn't the one with ice cubes down my pants...brrrrrh!!)
Best was the next morining when we got up at 6:00 and a breath taking view of one of the forts called Lohgad.
Actually, Pavna Lake is an artificial lake created due a Pavna dam just ahead of the lake.
Pavna Lake is situated in such location that while there u can see 3 forts
Lohgad Tikona and Tungi
This is one taken in the morning
after a quick lunch we guys played a cricket match..it was a bit irritating coz the ball use to go down the lake and
some one had to retrieve it ..which would usually be the one placed at that position especially for that.....
After a cricket match and a refreshing tea, we packed all our tents and belongings and headed back to the resort where
we were to rest before we left.
Nothing much happened in afternoon, just waiting for the lunch and after lunch we packed and left for the bus..
End of story
Visit Pavna Lake again
