If your idea of a good weekend is curling up in a blanket and watching movies, why not try it in a more scenic location, like by a dam or from a hanging tent? Moonstone Hammock, travel company that organises unique camping trips hosts Camp-In Cinema, at which you swap popcorn for barbecue and watch four short films selected by Shamiana Short Film Club, at a riverside campsite in Karjat.

“When I went for this trip a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea of how the 24 hours went by,” recalls Sakshi Kedia, 21, a marketing professional who went with a gang of seven friends. “Picture a tranquil water body, greenery, cool breeze and a makeshift café with board games and live music. Could it get any better? We ended up making so many friends and fun memories.”

The Moonstone Hammock organisers arrange for a makeshift café with food, board games and live music, to help travellers intermingle.

There are tents on the ground, suspended from trees and floating on water.
