About Bushy Dam

The Bushy Dam is located in the backdrop of scenic hilly terrains between Lonavala and I.N.S. Shivaji. During vacations and on weekends, this site is sought after for its hilly terrains and natural surrounding views.

Tourists come over from various places to visit the waterfalls, which are formed when the water gushes out through the dam during the monsoon months. Adventure activities such as swimming are restricted during the monsoon months.

The site is located on to the I.N.S. Shivaji road and hence can be reached by tourists by boarding the buses plying on this road.

No cleanliness and also the food was really very expensive. The parking cost is so high & also I wouldn't recommend this place to visit at all.

"Beautifully made in between mountains" new review

It is a best place to go, you can go there at night or in the morning. Dont go there in the summer because it is too hot. Winter is best and rainy season is terribly awesome. Please be careful during Rainy season.

"Monsoon is the best time, you can enjoy the bath" new review

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
We 2 couples have gone to Bushy Dam. There you can find flowing water for having bath which is coming out of the dam. Please do not purchase any slipper as merchants there create havoc that there are glass pieces in water. It is only used to sell there slippers.
After that you can go to the dam and enjoy the bath with some local food. As we noticed best time to visit is monsoon. You should have your own vehicle as it is costly to have rickshaw. Overall good experience.

"No water in the dam during off season" new review

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Not that great if you go during any season apart from rainy. Since you won't find much water in the dam. But nicely maintained and good scenery and decent snacks counter all over.

"Bushy Dam a must visit place in rainy season"

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The dam is very small, we can just say that the place will give you a pleasant feeling but only in rainy season. The rainy season in Lonavala is just the most romantic place for the couples and the singles can mingle.

You will enjoy the location and the view from this place. You can see whole of Lonavala from this place. The best time to visit this place would be during the rainy season.

"Not good for family"

  • Posted 3 months ago
Not a place for family, very slippery during rainy season. Bad approaching road, no place to park vehicle on weekends. Changing rooms are available, not a must visit spot, good for college going students.
