    Too many things to do, but very limited time. Either they should have extended the time or reduced the activities. Not everyone can be zealous and enthusiastic. The food was good and some of the activities were really enjoyable. But overall i had an amazing time with my family!

    Camping was fun when I saw the plan, but most of my co travelers were intending on having bonfire and games that people would sit and play. My friends and I were more into ziplining and other activities.However, the trip organizer guy was enthusiastic like us and were giving us good company.

    It was the best outing I had with my family till date. My dad and mom both were sports players and they had participated in more activities then we did. It was an amazing experience and we spent the day full of fun and at night we had an amazing time near a bonfire and there were other families as well and we bonded quite well.

    The campsite has one of the best activities to spend time. There were so many activities to go for that we booked it for 2 days and 2 nights stay. We even opted for Water Rappelling which was an incredible experience and they served very tasty food as well. We loved the campsite and the amazing views it offers specially in the evening.
