Powai Lake, Mumbai (Bombay)
(2.2/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Avoidable.... Heavy traffic around, no parking facilities, nothing major to do except walk around. No food except hawkers 
  • Lake is very beautiful and even has proper sitting arrangement alongside the boundary. The cool breezes of the lake, whether it is day or night calms you. 
  • You can catch a glimpse of this lake from many different points. I particularly like the view from the renaissance hotel.
