The rainy season brings back the memories of YMCA Nilshi camp which I have visited thrice so far and every time I have enjoyed it to the fullest.

The route to Nilshi is very pleasant. After driving a while on Pune-Mumbai old highway, you turn towards Nilshi in the Western Ghats on a village road, but you do not mind that as the drive is awesome and in rainy season, its breezy and green. The calm and peaceful surrounding take over you.
