#7 of 9 in Nature in Lonavala
Take a refreshing trip to Bhushi Lake, nestled among verdant surroundings. Originally created when the river was dammed to provide water for steam engines on the Great Indian Peninsular Railway, come monsoon season, the swelling waters draw locals and tourists alike for a cooling swim. Consider bringing a picnic along to enjoy on the green banks of the lake, or simply peruse some of the nearby shops and stop in one of the small restaurants to refuel.

Where to stay in Lonavala

A resort town through and through, Lonavala has a large collection of accommodations to meet the needs of its guests. The built-up area around the train and bus stations provide some of the most suitable accommodation in town for budget-conscious travelers, including simple guesthouses and a couple of hostels. To the north around the bend of the Old Mumbai-Pune Highway, things get a little pricier and a little more luxurious, although standard hotels and guesthouses can still be found. Following the main roads out of the urban area in most directions, you'll find resorts in scenic spots, offering the chance to enjoy the fresh air.
