We know just the place! Avanti Kalagram, which bills itself an Art & Health Village, is just an hour away from Pune. Besides a beautiful setting close to the Khamboli Dam, the resort boasts dozens of exciting activities to keep you happily busy all weekend.


Go trekking, try some farming with the locals, or bring out your inner artist with a pottery or painting session. Picinics, campfires, and local celebrations such as the famous Jatra are on the menu, too.

Know Before You Go: The resort is not fancy or luxurious. Expect to enjoy a slice of the village life, while reconnecting with Nature.


Food at the resort is cooked on the chulha, and local dishes such as Bhakari, Kharda and Pakora are served. If that makes your mouth water, you are sure to find the resort a delightful experience.
