Its pubs become alive with music and chatter, nightclubs witness some of the best dance moves, restaurants start rustling up some great dishes for midnight foodies, and the camping sites become the favourite spots for trekkers and adventure enthusiasts. Spend an evening on a historical walkthrough or a lazy evening in chokhi dhani or switch to a happening night at Koregaon Park. Nothing can beat a romantic camping site at Pavna Lake.
