City Dwellers looking for a weekend break have another reason to be in Karjat, horse-riding. Tudo Cavalo, India's first and only Equine Services Company that provides holistic, skill based and natural entertainment, has opened a fully equipped and professionally run horse riding school - Horsing Around.
Every Saturday, Karjat hosts a vegetable market that attracts thousands of people due to the price and quality. The chance of getting fresh tasty vegetables attracts people who have come just for a weekend visit as well to take home supplies for the days to come. Lets take a look at Karjat's Saturday Bazaar.
We all know the skies around Karjat are clear, the clean air makes Karjat a fabulous place for star gazers. But wouldn't it be even better to watch the stars and learn about the constellations and their movements. Thanks to a group known as the Khagol Mandal, a group of sky observers that have been conducting observation programs for over 20 years at Vangani.
A group of people are trying to protect the local eco-system and encourage sustainable living. Van Vadi, a 64-acre forest farm (as the owners like to call it), on the foothills of Sahyadri, offers a complete rustic experience. That's why it attracts lot of urban dwellers who come to be one with nature, away from their daily chaotic life. They organise Forest Festival where families can participate in nature activites and celebrate the harmony with nature.
You can treat your employees to a day full of adventure and learning in Karjat. The training course is organized by Magic Bus, a NGO that looks after the welfare of under privileged children. The Magic Bus center has a fully equipped ropes course, Jacob's ladder and climbing tower with a zip wire. These courses enable participants to grow at the team and individual levels, explore risk, leadership, communication, problem-solving, and coaching.
