Its been almost 4 years since our inception & the very first event that Canvas N chrome started off with was the “Lakeside Camping @ Lonavala” !

To relive those wonderful memories, We plan to go Camping on the banks of a serene & isolated lake where we let you take in the experience of pitching your own tents; Decipher the secret of the skies with a star gazing session; Probably make a couple of dozens of wishes on falling stars; Survive the nip of the winter chill with a Toasty Bonfire; Sleep comfortably in spacious tents; Wake up to the surreal sight of rising mist on the lake; All in all, just relax & rejuvenate in a beautiful location.

So pack the rucksack, charge the camera, get into your Car/Bike, & join us to Experience True Camping at a Rustic Lake Side location!!!
