Powai Lake, Mumbai

3.4
#4 of 13 in Nature in Mumbai
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. Plan your visit to Powai Lake and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Mumbai trip itinerary planner.

  • A small lake in Powai near kanjurmarg railway station. As my college is near by, I used to visit this place frequently. Nice place to visit. Spent some good time with peace. You will definitely feel relax after sitting on the wall of the lake. Do visit with your friends.
  • An artificial lake, situated in suburban parts of Powai looks beautiful. One can sit at relax in peace at this place. For all the health freaks, it can be good option for morning walks. The only thing one could find disturbing are the couples clinging around at this place because of which it is sometimes also called as Lover's Point.
  • There used to be a lake, but now it is all covered with green weeds. Good place to sit or walk. But sometimes it's awkward due to couples clinging around. Best time to visit is winter and monsoon. Many good restaurants are present nearby.
