The journey to the Dam from my hotel took a longer than I expected. The roads leading to the dam were not in good shape. The forest of the Western Ghats is located nearby. It looked a high rainfall area and only few forests were left for the villages to sustain their living. It was a perfect place for all the nature lovers as it has many important trees and the sight of eagles, snakes and kites is very common.
For the adventure lovers there is adequate arrangement of speed boats, swimming, river rafting, kayoing, camping which one can enjoy. Driving and trekking around the area is too much fun. There were many people on their two wheelers who seemed to enjoy their rides. The glimpse of nature and other sights is truly enchanting. The place was quite crowded with many tourists. Still it is a must visit place for everyone in Pune to enjoy the natural beauty of the place.
The place can be a perfect destination to spend a weekend away from the city life with friends and family. There are many resorts and guest houses which one can find near the dam. Trekking lovers can also go to the nearby areas. It was a nice time spent there. After this visit i was headed for my next place which was the famous Lohagad fort of Pune.
