Escape civilization and relax on the shores of Pawna Lake. The man-made lake, formed after building the Pavana dam, boasts picturesque natural scenery. Enjoy the peaceful, quiet atmosphere on a lakeside picnic, or take a stroll to explore the scenic surroundings. Although swimming in the lake is not allowed, you can still cool off by dipping your feet or walking along the water and enjoying the views. If you want to extend your stay, rent a tent and bonfire at the popular camping spot.

  • It'd be good if you can watch sunrise and sunset. Good place to visit once. Take a good camping trip. It's cold out there as compared to Pune, so pack clothes as per the season.
  • Amazing sunset. Great view of the moon at fool moon time. You can swim in certain part of the lake. And camping is allowed in here.
  • Great view. Can swim in some parts of it. Good place for camping. Now it's crowded though.
  • Very awesome place to hangout with friends for the weekend ride. 1 One can never miss out the sunset here. 2 25-30km away from Lonavala. 3 This place is very quiet and calm so you can enjoy your weekend without tension.
  • Amazing lake between mountains. There are mountains with forts on them. It is definitely a weekend getaway. There are camp organizers in this region. They have their own camping area here. You can carry your own tent or you can stay in one of their limited number of tents. The rates are also cheap for the facilities they provide. They have washrooms, food, camp fire and music. Spend a night under stars without fear here. Enjoy.
