“Memories....”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

Panshet Dam is one of the places that I have most memorable memories from....

One of the best and sadly, also the most common picnic spots in Pune. I and my friends have spent numerous days there... And have enjoyed the most on weekdays of monsoons with steamed corncobs and chai...

It gets quite crowded on weekends, though.

“Good For Water Sports-Panshet”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

The drive for Panshet is what i love the most. I ave been here innumerous times just because the roads are decent and the places are very scenic.
You have to cross Khadakwasla and drive ahead for more than 20 kms to reach here.
There are two Water Sports agencies here and you can have a banana ride, Scooter ride or a boat trip.
It would be better if you can plan a night outng and saty at a nearby resort over here. MTDC is right there infornt of Panshet and you have Abhiruchi Farm house also if you drive for 4 km more. Its also a decent place to stay.
Tip:
For one day trip its tiring a bit and if you still want to return the same day, then its better to start early in the day (say around 9 am)

“A perfect picnic spot near Pune”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

It is around 40km from Pune. It is very clam and pleasant scenic place to spend half day.
Lake is very beautiful with some water sports activity. You can do boat riding such as scooter boat ride, speed boat, banana ride, kayaking, paddle boat ride and many more. Check my uploaded photo for rates.
There is one small restaurant with some average quality of food but view from the restaurant is stunning.
There are some other options on the way to Panshet Dam.
Road quality is good and you can enjoy your road drive. Must visit place in monsoon.

“Nice place but dirty with litter and broken glass”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

Nice view, pleasant green environment polluted by debris from laris and picnickers (also bad smell around laris). Broken glass and litter everywhere.

The water looked clean and there were plenty of birds there which is a good sign.
