After walking for 30 minutes , reaching the lake gives a relaxing view and all tiredness vanishes. The nearby temple is also worth visiting.

The only good part of visiting this place is one of the approach road to reach this place. There is nothing great about this place otherwise, it's just a normal lake.

The lake is man made with a dam, it provides drinking water to matheran. Usual problem of broken supporting walking area and bottles and garbage thrown by people are there.

This place has become a spot for all the lazy tourists to go to, avoid it on peak times, instead go at night when the water is serene, and no one is around

It's a decent place with good scenic view. U can relax & at the same time enjoy as well. Avoid falling prey to horse riders they bargain a lot.
