Visit to Panshet Dam and its catchment area.

It can be treated as the Day's picnic by car. The winding road full of greenery through out the year passing through small villages with a glimps of Welland Venkatesara Hatchery township and the dam water reservoir. All this makes the drive soothing. There is a picnic shelter for the visitors to rest and enjoy panoramic view of the catchment area and a small tiny catering shed and toilets. All in all a wonderful spot to spend the time in the Nature's lap peacefully.

Day out picnic spot

Panshet Dam is around 50 kms from Pune stations. One can drive or also take a bus till Panshet village. A good relaxing day out place for family and friends. There are some adventures activities like flying fox and boating. One can have village style food cooked on traditional woodfire. Typical Maharashtrian food along Dam view.

Best trip through Mother Nature

Panshet Dam is okay but if you really want to enjoy your trip you have to take two detours. One is to the Panshet Backwaters, beautiful place to enjoy the water. There is a place just 1km before the dam on your left side where you can park your vehicle. The Backwaters are generally strong here because of the water released from the dam which is very near. So don't go deep, just enjoy on the banks. If possible ask the locals about the timings of the water release from the dam. Best take some shorts with you if you want to enjoy the chilling water.Another one is to the resort for which you have to take a right from the road to the dam. There is a restaurant there where you can enjoy some snacks and tea. Kanda Pakoda is extremely tasty and the view of the river is awesome. There are stairs there to sit and enjoy the water and wind. Water rides are mentioned in posters there but we didn't find any to do. Awesome roads at times but also you will find some rough roads. The scenery on either side is epic. Have a visit you won't regret.

Be yourself in the meadows side-by

I was blessed because my wife spotted a huge red crab in the middle of the road suddenly and I had stop for it to cross. But it was shocked to see us there (as were we). So it looked up from the side of our door and just stared at us endlessly and we stared back.Again I'm not claiming that this happened, but I think because there were so many purple and yellow flowers carefully decorated meadows by this woman who lives there in Panshet, the Mother Nature.By the way, may I suggest the only opportunity for the young lady by your side to run through fields of flowers without bothering about anything. Or maybe you should just sit on the slanting meadow which is lakeside and upon which is about to sleep, the Sun is showering soothing warmth through the clouds.Don't get obsessed with the romance here, I'm not saying you should do that. That's because you drive ahead 15 mins more to reach a dam complemented by a tea shop run by 2 cute kids. There's a locked gate which prevents you from accessing the road on the dam. Sip the tea slowly because it will last shorter than the sunset over the reservoir, while you will be seduced by twilight, clouds, winds, water.
