Lohagad along with being a simple trek has advantage of closeness from Pune and Mumbai both. Being one of the highest points in the region we get a unobstructed view of the night sky. Hence we conduct night trek and astronomical introduction session on the top. We will be setting up a 6" telescope on the top. Entire Night we will have Star Gazing sessions and In meantime while sky rotates and show some new constellations we will have theoretical information sessions. These sessions will help you to understand the real depth of sky. Things like What is Star? How is it born and how it dies? What mean by Constellation? What is nebula? What is cluster? What is galaxy? will be explained.
