Vinay Gupta, 31 Founder and owner of Adventure Geek
AVAILABLE FOR: Stargazing at Saphale, Palghar
PRICE: Rs 1,550 for children and Rs 1,850 for adults
With World Meteorological Day approaching on March 23, those interested in the stars might want to head to Saphale in Palghar for a night-long stargazing camp. The event is organised by Vinay Gupta, the owner of Adventure Geeks, which also holds treks and camps for people across age groups. Adventure Geeks is the culmination of a shared passion for outdoor events, which soon turned into a community of 5,000 people. "The best time for stargazing is after the monsoon, as the sky is clear and the stars and constellations are clearly visible at night. We set up a campsite in Saphale and use telescopes to soak in the sights of the night sky," Gupta says.
Recommended by: Palak Agrawal, Mumbai resident: "I went for one of Adventure Geek*s recent stargazing events along with a few friends. We saw a lot of stars, galaxies and were acquainted with a few planets. Plus, there was a bonfire and food!"
