When we plan for a trek its question of picking option out of 400 forts which are available only in Maharashtra ! so its like take your pick for the difficulty level and go ….but when it comes to go for a group picnic then we have to think a lot …
because everyone looks for enjoyment package to be available at minimal distance from home as well as in budget …
Having fun and food at the same place, where children can enjoy as well as adults can …

Chokhi Dhani Pune Review [following Improvements required]
- 5 coupons per person given in package, but if u take one horse ride say then u will consume 3 coupons ! that’s not fair, u shall be able to take 5 different rides with 5 coupons, there i felt like cheated
- food quality is not the best, it is at acceptable level, however since this is specially Rajasthani concept, I was expecting much higher level of tasty food.
- cleanliness issue, due to the fact that there is canal running through which is not so clean, smells like hell
- massage is free of cost, but the quality is very poor, persons are not trained, u may try it as time-pass
Based on my experience the recommendation is – Good for going with group only once, not upto the mark that one want to go there again and again, is well within budget with the offers available inside, you may spend an evening there (remember the timing is 5 pm to 11 pm, so u can be there at 5 pm so as to take advantage of the daylight for good photography of above acts)
