Powai Lake, Mumbai (Bombay)

#5 of 17 in Nature in Mumbai (Bombay)
Water Body Nature / Park
Stroll around Powai Lake and take in the peaceful atmosphere of the man-made lake, which once provided drinking water for the local city. During construction, the catchment of the lake covered an area of 2.1 sq km (0.8 sq mi) and up to 12 m (39 ft) deep. While the lake's depth remains the same, its catchment area now covers 6.1 sq km (2.35 sq mi). Look for wildlife along the banks, including crocodiles, white-throated kingfishers, spot-billed ducks, woolly-necked storks, butterflies, honeybees, and more. If you catch the right season, you'll see a carpet of pink balsam bushes encircling the lake.

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
