Beyond Earth – Stargazing

Trek Details


Date: 28th Mar, 2020
Region: Temghar
Seats: 50
Cost: 1400 onward


 

This is our unique program where we  set the night for observing  planets, stars, different constellations and deep-sky objects clubbed with an extra ordinary camping experience and fun games.

We have and extraordinary interactive session with our special guest speakers who are research scientist from IUCCA – Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune. So we can expect a lot of knowledge and fun at the same time. After all what campers love the most is sitting around the campfire at night, inhaling the cool, fresh air, and pausing every now and then to admire a star-studded sky. Stargazing is actually considered one of the top activities for summer campers.

Milky Way, star trails, & star photography techniques are special attractions of our camping program. Plan for an extravagant weekend getaway to feel refreshed amid the splendid nature.
