  • The outflow from the dam is just the perfect spot for photography . The backwater s of the dam is a great spot to relish and enjoy your day out. 
  • The scenic beauty along the downstream of the river godavari is the perfect picnic spot. Visit here and enjoy the greenery. 
  • Don't visit Dam is closed now for tourists,. It is far away from nasik and we were very disappointed when we reached their we found out that we cannot go to dam
