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.

  • No water in the dam and nothing much to see. A big disappointment not only for us but all other people we met on the way.  more »
  • Bhsuhi dam offered cool breeze and wide view of the lake when we visited in the last week of June. It was treat to the eyes. Dam looks large and alluring in rains, Lush green mountains around the lake...  more »
  • Not worth. Not very clean. They say it has a “lot of water” in the monsoon season, but when we went in December it had very tittle water, that too not so clean, to enjoy enough.  more »

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.
