Waterfall Rappelling at Bekre on 15th Aug 08 Nisarga Bhraman


Hey there Friends,

The arrival of the rains has lead to a mass exodus of mumbaikars outta the city to the waterfalls to enjoy.
We, at Nisarga Bhraman, have decided to do just that on the 15th of August 08.
Imagine this, a 2 hour journey out of the maddening city and its equally maddening crowd, Fresh Air and Greenery all around, a beautiful and scenic waterfall to enjoy in, and just like an icing on the cake; the Opportunity to rappel down the very waterfall that ur free to frolic in!
In short a perfect de-stressing getaway on a long weekend…..
