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.

"Not good for families" new review

  • 2.50/7
  • Posted 7 days ago
Of late this place has become a notorious one, youngsters flock this place, once peaceful & quiet, mess around, have hard drinks & do all sorts of masti. So this place is now a no go for families.

"A soothing place" new review

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Bhushi Dam is one of the must to visit place in Lonavala. It's quite soothing, though, the crowd wasn't that good, quite a cheap people were there, overall experience was good.

"Give a try" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
I have visited Bushy Dam 2-3 times and every time I visit this place I enjoy a lot. Be it with friends or family enjoyed a lot. Only if you are hydro phobic then ignore, for those who love water parks, do give this natural water park a try.

"No activities and waste of time" new review

  • 2.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Not a good place to go, risky. Difficult to reach. I didn't like it. Not recommended. No activities and waste of time. If you have spare time and nothing to do then can go. Else not worth it.

"Cold and cloudy atmosphere" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Never forget the memory which I got with my friends over their in my life. Especially in rainy season the atmosphere were cold and cloudy, specially bhutta with chilled beer will complete our journey. This place is best for the couple who wants to spend a night.

"Crowded with unruly revellers" new review

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Though a very awesome place to visit during monsoon, must say this place has become very commercialized, dirty and overcrowded. Definitely not advised to visit with families and be ready to get stuck in traffic jam should you decide to visit this place on a rainy holiday.

"Good place during rainy days" new review

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Good place to visit during rainy season, reaching from road to waterfall is risky as it was very slippery, so be careful while going over there. Also don't cross and jump in dam, you can enjoy on staircase with water.

"Very crowded during monsoon"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Very crowded during monsoon season, monsoon is the best time to go. Preferably one should visit during a week day to enjoy the view. There are few options for food too.

"Great place to be during Monsoon"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
If you are visiting Lonavala Khandala, then this is the must visit place. Its a dam built with water glowing over it, sit on stairs with water flowing, cross area with water log and awesome experience.

"Not recommended"

  • 3.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It is considered one of the best spot during monsoon but majority visitors are cheap kind and nasty kind of visitors who would tease even families. Its a complete NO-NO Destination.
