Are you one of those who have always dreamed about spending a night in a tent beneath the open sky, watching the stars while lying down or share and hear stories next to a campfire? Camping is not just a recreational activity but also a meditation for the brain. It connects us back to the roots of raw nature, our primitive sense. Our idea is to connect with the forces of nature and get back raw nature into the cities rather than getting the cities these disconnected places. Come and explore yourself at our camps.

We start our journey by afternoon towards our campsite around Bangalore. It will take around 3-4 hours for us to reach the campsite. Once everyone boards the Get Beyond Limits bus, a brief summary about the ‘Green Lake Campsite’ would be provided by our outdoor leaders along with the introduction amongst all of us. The day journey to ‘Green Lake Campsite’ will be very exciting to make it a perfect camping destination around Bangalore.
The lake next to our campsite is known to be a home for many birds. Surrounded by a small tree cover on one side making it a very unique experience. On the west of the lake, there is a mighty hill protecting it from the hot sun during the day. On the north and south one can find paddy fields giving a different ambience to the lake during different seasons of the year.
Camping is the art of pitching tents in wilderness to spend a holiday. We are fortunate enough to do it close to a lake. Our camping sessions will not be complete without learnings. We will teach everyone how to pitch tents which is a useful art under any outdoor situation. Our lake campsite is around Bangalore and one of the best weekend getaway.
Camping can never be complete without witnessing a sunset. We will witness the sunset on the day when we arrive at our campsite. If time permits we will go to the otherside of the hill to get more breathtaking views of the sunset. Being under the open sky, we will get to witness the dusk take over and slowly change the colour of the entire horizon. Some describe the sunset from this region as mother nature painting in an open canvas called the sky!
A circle of a good campfire is said to be one which stays on forever. A campfire is an ideal place to understand new perspectives, listen to the lives and stories of other people. It is said that a campfire is a sacred circle which gives a chance to all those who want to share and ambience of a campfire makes the stories even more interesting for those who like to listen. Sometimes there are ghost story sessions and even motivational story sessions by the all those who join.
When you are surrounded in the wilderness and the sky is clear over you, just lie down on the ground to watch the stars! You can study the basics of astronomy to make it a knowledgeable session. To make it even more interesting and easy for you, you can download mobile applications like Google Sky and the names of all the stars and constellations you will be able to see.
A graceful sunrise with reflections in the lake is worth to witness when you are camping around Bangalore. The green lake turns orange in color with the light from the divine sun. The sun would rise right in front of our campsite and is an experience worth remembering for a very long time! On a clear day we get to witness the circular disk of the sun leave the ground and take over the entire sky.
As a camping etiquettes we do not leave our tents without putting it back into their cover.
After the sunrise, we will proceed for bouldering session nearby. Bouldering is an art of climbing boulders by using different methods of contact with the bouder. ‘Three Point Contact’ system is a common practice used to climb boulders. Our Outdoor Leaders will give a demonstration on ‘how to do bouldering’ and further you can try your hand at it. If the spirits are high, then we can even have a fun team bouldering competition implementing all the techniques taught by the Outdoor Leaders. This session will be conducted under the supervision of the Outdoor Leaders.
RETURN TO BANGALORE
Soon after breakfast, we start our onward journey to Bangalore
and the drop off points will be the same as the pickup points.
Camping is only successful when we learn the basic virtues of life. The intent is simple, this campsite is a detox against all unwanted things we carry in life. This camping experience will add soul which only believes to push all limits.
