Good during Winters and Rains

Nice and serene. A much better place than the usual Lonavala. Winters are pleasant and cool. Rains are equally better to sit, relax and rink in your hotel room with a view of the Pavana. Have been twice, once each in March and September.

Rainy season lake

This lake is mostly at it's best during and after the Rainy season. Just half a km ahead of the Shiva Temple on the way to Bhushi Dam and Tiger Point. This Lake makes you feel so alive. Monsoons are the best time to visit and eat a Corn Cob sitting next to this Lake or indulge in some Indian street food as it has small vendors situated at the beginning of the Lake. There are many cafe situated on the road side with the view of the Lake you can enjoy the view with some food there.
