    This is quite a known place for living in and around Pune. You will find so many food stalls selling some crunchy quick bites and tea. Best time to visit is between 4 to 6 PM or early morning hours. The scene is quite beautiful and rainy season is the best time to visit

    Kasarsai dam is a beautiful place. It is still raw and not much commercialized.
    You can go for a boat ride in the lake.
    You can find some ducks near the lake.
    Not much crowd around, the road is not good.
    We visited the K resort there which has a lake view and nice bhajiya(pakode). Food was ok.

    Good to see the Park relaxed and slumbering in the early morning. Rather deserted as expected in the current environment.

    It is near Bhor. It is built in British era and has nice architecture. Dam has 2 walls. So it is dam wall below dam wall. Smaller wall can be seen only when water levels drop in summer. Back water has scenic points.

    Sitting by the edge or taking a boat ride are intoxicating at sunrise.The clear skies,blue sky,tranquil waters are bewitching,but most of all,it’s the sound of silence....away from city crowds and in total peace.
    Though it is a challenging ride by road,which is not smooth at all,dotted by small villages and their narrow rioads,one can relax in the MTDC hotel,which is reasonably clean or a modern hotel on the main road.One has to depend on one’s own resources for enetainment,but if one is looking for nature trails or alone time,this is perfect.Be sure to go before it gets humid in summer months,The greenery is verdant and nature lovers will find plenty of variety in flora and fauna.

    Though its not a seperately worth place to visit but you will find it on the way to Lavasa just before starting of Dasve ghat section.
    You are not permitted to go to the top of the dam.

    This is a very big lake with serene waters near Malshej Ghat on the Kalyan - Ahmednagar Highway (NH-61). We happened to pass this lake while driving from Otur to Malshej Ghat. We first crossed a bridge near Junnar across the backwaters of the lake and then we saw the huge expanse of water on the right side as we were driving towards Malsej.

    There is a lovely backdrop of the hills of the Sahyadris in the background, and the shimmering waters of the lake in the foreground. The sight is beautiful to behold. When we went there were no clouds, but I am sure it will look heavenly in the rainy season, with the monsoon clouds hovering above the hills.

    We stopped at the resort ‘Saj By The Lake’ for lunch, which has got good rooms bordering the lake and dam. We were told that sometimes migratory flamingos stop by for nesting in the lake during the winter, but there were none at the time we visited.

    We stayed in a farm house overlooking the dam backwater. Beautiful place surrounded by the hills. The approach roads are in bad condition though. We took the Chakan road. You won't get food options around this place

    This place is very silent except the sound of the water. It gives a very calm feeling visiting this dam.A nice place to visit but if you are visiting it in summer season plan to finish the trip before the sun overheads as there is lot of open area surrounding the dam.
